Metro CEO Art Leahy has released the following statement regarding the appointment of an Interim Commander of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Transportation Services Bureau:
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Commander Ronene Anda as Interim Commander of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s (LASD) Transportation Services Bureau. Anda replaces Commander Pat Jordan, who was reassigned by Sheriff Lee Baca.
Anda is a 29-year veteran of LASD. She recently served as Commander of the Countywide Services Division, which patrols county facilities, parks, colleges and county hospitals. Prior to that assignment, Anda was involved with the Metro Blue Line in the 1990s when she served in the region. She was also captain of the Sheriff’s Lomita station.
I met earlier with top officials of LASD and Commander Anda and I feel confident that the high level of law enforcement services focused on our transit needs will continue and our close working relationship with LASD will be maintained.
“I look forward to highlighting how teamwork by our deputies helps to keep all Metro passengers and employees safe,” Anda said.
