Rail squad station to get train safety back on track
A STRONGER police presence on our trains is great news for people who just want to get from A to B without fears of encountering crime and anti-social behaviour.
The city's new railway squad station will hopefully cut down offending on the Ipswich line while making passengers feel safer on board and while waiting for trains.
They will target anti-social behaviour, property offences and offences against people on trains and at rail stations.
The rail squad will have access to thousands of CCTV cameras across the network, which will help them monitor what is happening on the platforms and respond quickly.
Members of the community should have the right to use public transport without worrying about what or who they are going to encounter.
With law and order being a major concern in the community, it is reassuring to see an increased police presence that is set to make rail passengers feel safer and enhance the feeling of security for nearby businesses.
People who just want to feel safe and ride the train in peace will no doubt be on board with moves to crack down on offenders and enhance safety for the city's commuters.
