ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- MetroLink security guards now have the power to write citations.

The hope is that this power will help keep those without train tickets away, leading to a decrease in crime.

In Illinois, security guards can write citations, but up until this week, the City of St. Louis did not provide that ability.

Metro Transit calls this, "An important step toward reassuring the riding public."

They added, "Our passengers want more aggressive fare enforcement on the MetroLink system and we are pleased to have regained that ability."
