You will be hard pressed to find a larger gathering of federal, state and local law enforcement at one place today than the Farmington FrontRunner station.

Sporadic, spot security checks; get used to them, whether it's on FrontRunner, light-rail or the bus.

"We've been asked to do them at least once a month. You will see them in this area that often," said Dwayne Baird of the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA).

He says federal air marshals and even behavior detection officers will practice scoping out those who would do us harm.

"There's a certain type of behavior, and I can't go into the details of that," he said.

He says TSA is focusing on commuter safety following the bombing of the Madrid train station four years ago.
