Northeast News

This week on Kansas City’s Northeast Newscast, managing editor Paul Thompson sits down with KCATA Transit Security Division Chief Hugh Mills to talk about his efforts to provide the safest possible experience for passengers and operators alike.

Mills discusses how difficult the job of a bus operator truly is, touches on his own unique experience driving a bus as a teenager in Arkansas, describes the trips he took in plain clothes to prepare him for the position of KCATA security chief, and details his extensive work history – which includes more than two decades in the U.S. Army, along with time spent in private security and nearly a decade working at the Jackson County Sheriff’s office.
