LIEUTENANT MARC LUCIO PROMOTED TO CAPTAIN
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has selected Marc A. Lucio to lead Transit Services Bureau (TSB). TSB is the bureau tasked with providing police services to Metro buses, trains, and properties, throughout Los Angeles County.
Captain Lucio began his law enforcement career in 1992 as a reserve deputy assigned to Pico Rivera Station (PRV). He graduated from the Academy in 1995 and served as a deputy at Men’s Central Jail, PRV, and Operation Safe Streets Bureau (OSS).
In 2006, Captain Lucio promoted to sergeant and was assigned to East Los Angeles Station, Court Services East Bureau, PRV and OSS before promoting to lieutenant in 2012.
As a lieutenant, Captain Lucio’s first assignment was TSB, where he was a watch commander, service area lieutenant, and the operations lieutenant. During his time as a lieutenant, he also worked at Compton Station, Emergency Operations Bureau as the Tactical Planning Lieutenant, Aero Bureau as the operations lieutenant, and most recently, as the Division Aide at Special Operations Division.
Captain Lucio has always been connected to his community and in 2018, was elected to the City Council in the City of Chino. He currently serves on several city boards and committees.
Captain Lucio has a bachelor’s degree in Criminology from the University of La Verne and a master’s degree in Leadership from the University of Southern California. He is married to his wife Sandra, who is a lieutenant on the Sheriff’s Department and together they have a blended family of six children. In his off-duty time, Captain Lucio enjoys spending time with his family, working out, and serving his community.
Captain Lucio is among several captains to be promoted under Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s new captain selection process, which in this case, involved a panel of Metro Executives. Once all of the finalists were interviewed, the panel chair made a recommendation to the Sheriff, who made the final decision in appointing a captain.
The Sheriff’s Transit Services Bureau is currently the fifth largest transit law enforcement agency in the country. This bureau has been part of Los Angeles County transit policing since 1990.
