Troopers Receive Train Crash Investigation Training

Trooper Mills and Trooper Lewis Trooper Mills and Trooper Lewis Members of Troop C recently attended a day long course presented by the CSX Police Department at CSX’s Adamo Yard in Tampa, FL. Members from throughout the Troop received instruction on train crash investigation, laws pertaining to railroad crossings and tracks, and the importance of enforcement of crossing arm violators and vehicles that stop on the tracks.

The highlight of the day was the train ride through Hillsborough County where our members were able to sit in the locomotive’s engine and witness numerous violations of motorists along the way and the safety measures that are taken by CSX personnel on a daily basis making CSX one of the safest transportation companies in Florida!

Special thanks to CSX Special Agent Bruce Shaw, Special Agent Tim Easley, and Risk Management Personnel Denise Lynch and Larry Walter for making the class a success!
