LASD Transit Services Bureau partners with the Sheriff’s Community Advisory Council to celebrate National Night Out on August 2nd, 2022

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Transit Services Bureau (TSB), will join numerous public safety agencies around the Country by participating in the annual summer community celebration, National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 5-8 PM.  Partnering with the LASD Community Advisory Council, Sheriff’s Transit personnel and volunteers will set up at the Metro Rosa Parks Station Complex, where the Metro A-Line and C-Lines intersect, to interact with Metro patrons and community members, and hand out free back to school gear, such as backpacks and other classroom essentials, i.e., pens, pencils, and notebooks.  There will even be free haircuts for the kids, by licensed personnel.  One lucky backpack will even have a $50. Dollar Amazon gift card inside.

The LA Sheriff’s Department has had a long history of celebrating National Night Out through the years, at most of its local stations and TSB is no exception.

The 2021 edition of this national celebration was such a great success, it was imperative that we do it again.  LASD TSB Captain Shawn Kehoe remarked about the importance of events like these.  “I’ve said many times that Metro is like a moving city.  Our transit patrons rely on a safe, economical, and efficient way to get around, and that’s why they Go Metro.”  Captain Kehoe also stated, “we’re really glad to have an opportunity to meet some of our transit neighbors in a setting like this.  However, we strive to make everyday a national day out to ditch your vehicle and take public transit.”   

Specialized units within the Sheriff’s TSB, such as Explosives Detection K9’s, Special Assignment Unit, Transit Mental Evaluation Team, and more, will also be on hand with Sheriff’s vehicles, robots, and displays, so that guests can get a glimpse of just some of the ways that their transit policing agency keeps them safe.  There’ll even be some great snacks to munch on and free haircuts to have the kids looking sharp for the first day of school.  (A parent or guardian must be present)  DJ “DP”, a.k.a. TSB Deputy Penn, will be on the mic and spinning the tunes to keep things movin’ and groovin’.  Check out his moves from last year on our Instagram page: @lasdtransit  We’re pretty sure he’ll have guests dancing up a storm once again!
A very special thanks to Marvnation Promotions and City of Refuge, for their generous donations.
We remind our Metro patrons and the public they are our best sources of timely, relevant, information.  If you “See Something” on the transit system that doesn’t look right to you, “Say Something” by calling the Metro Transit Safety and Security line at (888) 950-SAFE (7233), or you can download the newly updated LA Metro Transit Watch App to report crime or any problems from your smartphone.  Remember, if you see crime in progress or any other emergency, dial 9-1-1.
