It’s official: Metro has appointed James M. Dougherty of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency its new Chief Safety Officer. His first day will be April 19th, when he’ll be knee-deep in orientation to Metro.

While credited with improving SFMTA’s safety record, he’s only occupied the top safety job there for a year. He’s held safety positions with two other transit agencies before that, however, and was a police officer for 22 years.
