LA Metro’s number one priority is the safety of our riders and our employees, and we will make sure that any changes to our public safety systems are consistent with Metro’s values.
Staff has recommended that our Board approve funding the remaining six months of our law enforcement contracts with the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and Long Beach Police Department as well as authorize an extension of up to one-year. We believe this will give Metro’s Public Safety Advisory Committee sufficient time to finalize its long-term recommendations.
We will continue to prioritize our riders’ safety on our system as well as identify long-term public safety measures. We hope that we are able to work together with our law enforcement partners to arrive at a mutually satisfactory agreement.
