BART will swear in three new deputy police chiefs Tuesday.
The three positions are new. The deputy police chiefs will perform the same duties as two commanders who retired over the past 18 months.
BART spokesman Linton Johnson said the three will carry out the policies of Police Chief Kenton Rainey. One will oversee operations, another will oversee support services and another will oversee the investigations unit.
The three positions are designed to provide a deeper command staff for BART police to make sure paperwork, training, discipline and goals are carried out.
"Somebody's eyes have to be looking at these things," said Johnson, who could not say how much the trio will be paid.
The deputy chief positions were among recommendations in a report following the Jan. 1, 2009, shooting of BART passenger Oscar Grant by a BART police officer.
Deputy Chief Benson Fairow is a 21-year veteran of the Oakland Police Department. He has been a captain the past five years.
Deputy Chief Janeith Glenn-Davis has 26 years of law enforcement experience, including 17 years with the Oakland Police Department and eight years as chief of police for Cal State East Bay.
Deputy Chief Daniel Hartwig has been with the BART police force 28 years. He has served as the agency's security programs manager.
The swearing in will take place at noon Tuesday in the Metropolitan Transportation Commission auditorium in Oakland.
