  • NFTA Police

    I was cruising around the Buffalo area the other night when I see a black and while pull up next to me at the stop light. Turns out it's the NFTA Police. NFTA is the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority-they run all the buses and subways in the Buffalo area. I was wondering if anyone has any idea about what they do or any information about them at all. Thanks.

    EDIT: I found this site.... http://nfta.com/police/careerinfo.html but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them. Also, any ideas what a starting salary for them may be?

    The NFTA is not civil service. They are a full sworn police department who sends guys through the academy, and also takes certified police as transfers. I have a couple of friends who work for them, and from what they say, the starting pay is $18.00 an hour, but then it goes up as the steps inrease.

        • The NFTA's TAPD (Transit Authority Police Dept.) does start at $18.92 an hour and goes up to $21.11 after the first 6 months. It goes up every year untill you max at $25.00 per hour.
        • They do NOT except lateral transfers, you must be on the list to get hired.
        • The list is civil service, but not "competitive civil service" so that means they can hire anyone as long as they pass the exam.
        • The NFTA is responsible for the port of Buffalo, small boat harbor, NFTA Buses, the subway, down town bus terminal, Niagara Falls bus terminal, the Buffalo/Niagara International Air Port, and the Niagara Falls Air Port.
        • The TAPD also has Tri-County Jurisdiction (apparently) Erie, Niagara, and Cat County.
        • And all 90 Officers are fully sworn NYS Police Officers. (and DO enforce the V&T...)
        • The TAPD (aka the burger king cops) was formed in 1984.


        Oh and p.s. The cars and dark blue and white...
