LA Metro Seeks Members for Public Safety Advisory Committee
By City News Service
Published November 5, 2020

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority today reminded Metro riders that there’s still time to join a committee that will focus on community-based approaches to policing and re-envisioning transit safety.

Metro’s Public Safety Advisory Committee applications are open until Nov. 13. The transit agency is seeking 15 members and three alternates who:

— are regular riders of the Metro system;

— are committed to ensuring that Metro follows best practices for the public with safe transportation; and

— can offer relevant knowledge and expertise as a “resident, advocate for racial justice and/or safety reform, law enforcement expert, mental health provider or expert, or social services provider or expert.”

Members should be able to meet twice per month, virtually, until June 2022, according to Metro, which said meetings will likely be during the late afternoon or early evening hours.

“Following the George Floyd protests earlier this year, the Metro board is seeking recommendations on how to reform the agency’s policing practices,” according to a Metro statement. “The PSAC will be part of this effort working in partnership with community leaders to re-envision transit safety and community-based approaches to policing.”
