Q688: What is the Secure Stations Scheme?
The Secure Stations Scheme represents a national standard for passenger safety and security on Britain's railway stations.
The Secure Stations Scheme is an opportunity for Britain's rail companies to improve security at their stations and display to their customers their desire to reduce crime. Recognising the public's fear of crime at stations, the scheme provides an incentive to station operators to improve security and provide reassurance to passengers and staff.
This national scheme covers all rail and underground networks which are policed by the British Transport Police [BTP]. It establishes standards of good practice and accredits individual stations which have worked with the BTP and other local partners to implement security measures.
