We need your feedback on Metro’s Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) Mission and Values Statement

Metro’s Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) has begun discussions to develop a Mission and Values statement for public safety on the Metro transit system. During the August 18, 2021, general PSAC meeting, we provided an online form to solicit public feedback on this process. Your input is greatly valued and will help us create a strong direction for this critically important committee. If you would like to provide input, please access the online form here. The form will be live through Monday, September 20, 2021, and your comments will be shared with PSAC members.

If you would like to attend the virtual bi-weekly general PSAC meetings, they are held the first and third Wednesdays of the month starting at 5 p.m. Please save the log-in information for future reference:

The PSAC will be instrumental in helping us reimagine our approach to public safety and security on our system. The PSAC’s recommendations will be aligned with Metro’s Board Motions, which are:

· June 2020, Board Motion 37/37.1: A Community Safety Approach to System Security & Law Enforcement

· March 2021, Board Motion 26.1: PSAC Compensation

· March 2021, Board Motion 26.2: Investment in Alternatives to Policing

  1. Ah yes, can’t fight crime on our transit system without wasting time and taxpayer money on a “mission and values statement” first! Get over yourselves, Metro, this isn’t rocket science! We the riders want SAFETY, and we couldn’t care less about this wasted effort to come up with a “statement” before actually DOING SOMETHING about crime and harassment on our bases and trains! Do something that actually makes a difference!

  2. I’m ok riding the Red Line by myself to do things between downtown and Hollywood during the day, but I no longer bring along others or suggest it to anyone. It’s just not safe anymore. Too much smoking and drug use on the trains and platforms. Too much bad behavior n general. At night time…forget it! It’s like an asylum down there that the lunatics have taken over. Metro really has done a terrible job with safety on the subway.

  3. Am tired paying for my trips dirty trains Homeles took over loony everywhere and the smell 😭💩
