Los Angeles Metro Will Be Safer

Los Angeles Police Department officers will soon provide security services on buses and trains serving passengers within city limits, under the terms of a contract approved today by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board. Beginning July 1, the LAPD will assume law enforcement responsibilities on Metro trains and buses within the City of L.A.; Long Beach Police Department officers will patrol transit services in Long Beach; and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be responsible for law enforcement on public transportation in other areas of L.A. County.

“The safety of our Metro passengers and employees must always be our first priority,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti, who serves as First Vice Chair on the Metro Board of Directors. “Making local officers responsible for policing the areas they know best means better coverage, quicker emergency response times, and stronger accountability. The Sheriff’s Department provides excellent service to Metro, and they will continue to do so under a contract that will give them expanded access to resources from neighboring agencies.” Read more

New Immigration Enforcement And L.A.

Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti made the following statement on DHS Plans for Implementing the President’s Executive Orders on Immigration:

“Stoking fears of mass deportation, turning our backs on refugees and children, denying asylum-seekers the right to see a judge, and showing indifference to suffering are not policies to make us safer — they’re a cruel abandonment of everything we believe as Americans and stand for as Angelenos. Whether they live in Van Nuys or Virginia, East L.A. or East Lansing — Americans everywhere expect their leaders in Washington to act with the justice, grace, and tolerance that give us our identity. The Administration’s release today of details on how it will implement the President’s executive orders on immigration enforcement reveal plans that run counter to fundamental American principles: Protecting our homeland means focusing on criminals who pose a threat to our safety and security — not turning local police into a deportation force or creating widespread fear by targeting hardworking immigrants who contribute so much to our economy, culture, and spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood...

Healthy Meals At Home WITHOUT The Work

Healthy Meals At Home WITHOUT The Work

We all want – leave alone, need! – to eat healthier. If you are well, eating healthy is good for your health, your mood and your weight. If your health is less than perfect already or if you suffer from food sensitivities or food allergies, eating healthy is mandatory. Rationally, we all know that. But we are busy. We are tired. We are in a hurry. There is often no time for preparing a healthy meal. As a result we grab “something” on the go, when hunger strikes we’ll eat whatever is available. No wonder so many of us don't feel[...]
