Trespasser deaths on railroad rights-of-way and other railroad property are the leading cause of fatalities attributable to railroad operations in the United States. To address this serious issue, the railroad industry, governments (Federal, State, and local), and other interested parties must know more about the individuals who trespass. Due to the lack of available root cause data, FRA proposes to collect data from law enforcement agencies to develop general descriptions of the root causes of trespassing. This will allow FRA and other interested parties, such as Operation Lifesaver, to target audiences with appropriate education and enforcement campaigns to reduce the resulting annual number of injuries and fatalities. Completion and submission of form FRA F 6180.178 is required for law enforcement agencies, in order to obtain and/or receive FRA’s Railroad Trespassing Enforcement Grant. For law enforcement agencies not receiving FRA’s Railroad Trespassing Enforcement grants, completion and submission of this form is voluntary. There is a requirement for recordkeeping.
