NFTA Police Captain Michael Garrity was recently honored for his many years of service to the law enforcement community by the Erie County Law Enforcement Foundation during their annual dinner at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens.

One of the original members of the NFTA Transit Police Department, Captain Garrity started his career in 1984 as a patrolman and over the years has been promoted to Sergeant, Lieutenant and subsequently to his current rank of Captain in 2010.

In his capacity, Michael serves as the Investigative Division Commander of the department. As such, he oversees all detectives and officers assigned to the Accident Investigation Unit, as well as the Counter Terrorism Unit. He also serves as the Assistant Commander of the Emergency Response Team, developing both training and operational plans for the electronic equipment of the Metro and Aviation Divisions. In addition, he often serves as Acting Chief of Police in the absence of Chief George Gast.

Congratulations to Captain Garrity on his well-deserved honor and for his 32-years of loyal and dedicated service to the NFTA Police Department.
