THE UNION STATION POLICE was formed in 1987 when the nation's oldest Union Station was transformed from a railroad depot into a hometown festival marketplace. Housing both Amtrak and Greyhound stations, millions of people pass through the station a year. With this amount of traffic, it became necessary and beneficial for Union Station and the city of Indianapolis to appoint police officers to patrol Union Station and the surrounding areas of downtown Indianapolis. Currently there are 12 full and part time officers who respond to police and general emergency calls for Union Station and the southern tip of downtown Indy. Union Station is bordered by Meridian, Illinois, South, and Jackson Streets.

Union Station Police is headed by Chief Jim Likens.

Union Station is currently undergoing a major renovation. Most attractions, including the Grand Hall, are closed for construction. Most areas will be open to the public in the middle of 1998.
