Drummond, a long time local leader with over 35 years of community service, 29 years in law enforcement, and over 20 years invested in university education, earned a Bachelor’s Degree from CSU Long Beach in Public Administration, a Master’s Degree from the University of Southern California, and a Doctorate in Criminology from August Vollmer University.

As a life-long user of public transit, Drummond joins LBT’s Board with memories of riding the bus during his youth and currently as a Long Beach resident, “I rode LBT throughout my school age years and ride now from time to time when I’ve been without my car. I really enjoy and appreciate the service,” said Drummond.
