MTS hires Capt. Ed Musgrove as security manager

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The Metropolitan Transit System announced Monday the hiring of former San Diego County sheriff’s Capt. Ed Musgrove as its security manager.

Musgrove, a 25-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department, will oversee 165 contracted security officers and 35 code compliance inspectors who are employed by the MTS, the operator of San Diego’s trolley system and many public transit buses.

“Ed has proven experience in government and private sector safety and security management,” said MTS CEO Paul Jablonski. “Providing a safe and secure environment for our passengers is our top priority. All of his law enforcement work has been in San Diego, so he’s familiar with our region and our transit system.”

Musgrove was the head of the sheriff’s Santee station. He left the agency to become the head of security operations manager for the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad.

Musgrove will work with another longtime local law enforcement leader, Manuel Guaderrama, who spent 30 years with the San Diego Police Department. Guaderrama is the deputy director of transit enforcement and code compliance for the MTS.
