TMYK:

“Union Pacific maintains a functioning police department staffed with officers given the title of Special Agent with jurisdiction over crimes against the railroad. Like most railroad police, its primary jurisdiction is unconventional, consisting of 54,116 miles (87,091 kilometers) of track in 23 western U.S. states. Railroad police are certified state law enforcement officers with investigative and arresting powers both on and off railroad property if authorized by the state they are operating within. They also have interstate authority pursuant to federal law (Title 49, United States Code, Section 28101. Under Public Law 110-53 SEC. 1526. (RAILROAD SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS)), Railroad police powers have been expanded to include railroads other than the officer’s employing agency. All of the states in Union Pacific’s 23 state system authorize full police authority, except for Minnesota and Wyoming, which do not grant authority to railroad police at all. Special Agents typically investigate major incidents such as derailments, sabotage, grade crossing accidents and hazardous material accidents and minor issues such as trespassing on the railroad right of way, vandalism/graffiti, and theft of company property or customer product. In accordance with their duties, Special Agents have the ability to access the FBI’s NCIC database to run suspects and vehicles for wants and warrants, as well as criminal history checks.”

You know, when you’re coming through San Francisco keeping busy applying makeup holding a cell phone eating a Pocky chocolate-coated breadstick with one hand and holding the remaining Pockies with the other, it pays to have another set of eyes keeping a lookout on the road ahead.

As seen in the Middle Sunset District heading toward the Golden Gate Bridge on 19th Avenue, aka the Senator Leland Yee Double Fine Zone:

Feel free to eat delicious Pocky treats whenever and wherever you wish – that whole sodium cyanide thing involving the Monster with 21 Faces sorted itself out more than a quarter century ago. (Wow, Wiki, you certainly are well-informed.)
