September 24-30, 2017 is the inaugural U.S. Rail Safety Week (RSW).  The McComb Police Department will join with Amtrak, CN Railroad and other state and federal authorities today, September 26, 2017 between 9:00am and 12:00 noon, for “Operation Clear Track”. 

Authorities will be stationed at the top railroad grade crossing and/or trespassing incident locations in states around the country, including here in McComb, to hand out safety materials to motorists and pedestrians, and issue warnings and citations to those violating state laws. 

Raising public awareness is a critical step in protecting our community and its citizens by preventing future death and injuries on the railroad.
