RR Police

I know Metra Police handle the lines where metra crews run (Milw, RI etc). Who handles the police duties on the BNSF AND UP lines? Is it Metra or the operating railroad.

I'm pretty sure UP Police handle Ogilvie and the three railroad lines associated with it. I know C&NW police did so.

It could still be answered by the 911 center. I have not had the pleasure of calling Cook County, but I have called county administrative non-911 numbers and still reached a 911 operator. The toll free number could be redirected to a local number that would still get immediate, if not urgent, call handling.

BNSF uses their own force. When I was there, one engineer's father was the local commander, and his sister was also a cop. She used to deadhead in to work on my train.
