From the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, which is under contract to patrol Metro’s buses, trains and facilities:
In the latest move to restructure parts of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), Sheriff John Scott has changed the bureau that polices the Metro system into a division with its own chief and created the Transit Policing Division.
The move continues LASD’s mission of patrolling Metro buses, trains and facilities and Metrolink while streamlining the internal process and eliminating department bureaucracy.
“Sheriff Scott has looked at many aspects of the department with his vast experiences, yet with fresh eyes and seen where improvements can be made,” said Ronene Anda, chief of the new Transit Policing Division.
Transit Policing Division becomes the 14th division within LASD and will have direct control of its personnel and budget.
