Work Ethic of LA Metro Police and Ambassadors in Question…

- 광고 -

Los Angeles, CA – A shocking incident has raised serious questions about the law enforcement efficiency of LA Metro. A person who died at a subway station was left unattended for nearly six hours at the Metro subway San Pedro station bench. The deceased was discovered by a Metro ambassador conducting a health check inside the subway, despite the presence of five LAPD officers patrolling the platform.

Gina Osborn, a former security officer for Metro, was fired in March after reporting that the LAPD was not properly patrolling Metro stations. This incident occurred amidst a series of violent incidents on public transportation, stirring public opinion that more law enforcement officers are needed on Los Angeles buses and trains.

On May 24, when a reporter from KFOX Radio Seoul visited the Wilshire-Western subway station at around 9:20 AM for verification, Metro security was stationed but were leaning on the subway station gate looking at their cell phones instead of patrolling or monitoring the station. The reality that no one checks even if someone dies at the subway station overlapped with the sight of them continuously looking at their cell phones. When the reporter visited again at 12:20 PM, the same security officer was in a different location, still looking at his cell phone. Metro ambassadors are in a similar situation. It is a common sight in LA to see most of them gathered at bus stops or in front of stations looking at their cell phones.

Despite the enthusiasm of Metro management, it seems that detailed work instructions and work verification procedures are not properly established for the actual work being carried out on site.

LA Metro has outsourced its work to the LAPD and local police due to a lack of its own police force, but it is questionable whether there is proper supervision and control over them.

This incident raises questions about the effectiveness of law enforcement in public transportation and shows the need for more proactive measures to ensure the safety of passengers.
