Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Transit Services Bureau Active Shooter Training

On Tuesday, June 1, 2022, LASD Transit Services Bureau (TSB) personnel, along with Sheriff’s Arson / Explosives Detail (Bomb Squad) and Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT), participated in realistic active shooter training scenarios, provided by Metro transit personnel.  The training, at the yet to be opened Downtown Inglewood Station which will be part of Metro’s Crenshaw Line to LAX, is part of Metro’s and LASD’s commitment to staying ready for any possible scenario, especially in today’s current climate.

Metro used the almost ready to be opened station, along with volunteer role players and even a live, working light rail train, to give a sense of realism to each different scenario thrown at the deputies.  TSB Deputies have been participating in these kinds of exercises for years, having policing responsibility for at least some portion of the Metro policing contract since 1990.

LASD TSB Captain Shawn Kehoe commented that this training falls in line with Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s commitment to bring the Metro transit system back in line as a safe, convenient mode of travel in Los Angeles County.  “Being ready for any situation is important to what we’re doing to make riding Metro safe.”  Said Kehoe, “Operation Safe Travel, which went into effect today, will also make a significant impact.  The additional law enforcement presence, along with specialized Sheriff’s units, will help Metro riders be safe when they travel.” 

Those who ride Metro can now call the Sheriff’s Operations Safe Travel line at: (213) 229-2298 and leave a detailed message about any concerns they have or something that they saw that didn’t look right.  This line is for non-emergencies, not in progress situations.  As always, if you see or are involved in a crime in progress, you can still call the Metro Safety and Security line at: (888) 950-SAFE (7233), or if you have an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.  You can also download the newly updated LA Metro Transit Watch App to report crime or any problems from your smartphone.

The Sheriff’s Transit Services Bureau remains committed to Metro, its patrons, employees, and to remaining a large part of the transit landscape in Los Angeles.  Your concerns are ours, so if you “See Something” on the transit system that doesn’t look right to you, “Say Something!”
