SRA LAW ENFORCEMENT

transitoff.jpg

Thousands of commuters travel on the City Rail Network each day. To ensure the safety of passengers and to protect the income of City Rail you will see the "Law Enforcers" throughout the network. These men and women can be seen patrolling the stations and trains and also checking if the passengers hold a current ticket.

 

There are all different sections that these people work under. They include Revenue Protectors, Protective Security Services and more

 

Most of the radio traffic of the Law Enforcers is heard on the GRN. You can find the GRN frequencies along with other SRA frequencies elsewhere at www.newcastlescan.com

 

The list below contain the GRN talk groups that are allocated to "The Law Enforcers"

Also tune into your various local police channels to hear the transit police.

 

Security

CityRail’s number one priority is their commitment to the safety and security of their customers and staff. CityRail employs over 400 RailCorp Transit Officers and over 100 security personnel to afford a high level of protection for all their passengers.

 

With almost one million passenger journeys a day, CityRail has the best and most comprehensive rail network security system in the Southern Hemisphere.

        There are 5,700 security cameras on 302 CityRail stations right across the network, which are controlled from strategically placed central locations.

        There are 7000 high intensity lights and 700 emergency help points installed across the network.

 

 


Security on trains

A major security initiative in 2002-03 has been the recruitment and training of RailCorp Transit Officers who perform revenue protection, customer service and security functions. To date, there are over 400 Transit Officers employed on the network and there will be 600 by the end of 2004.

 

Transit Officers are highly trained security specialists who have the power of arrest and work in conjunction with the Police on targeted lines specified by CityRail and Police intelligence. They have the power to issue infringement notices for ticketing, safety, behavioural, property & compliance offences and the power to ask people to leave trains and stations.

 

Some callsigns heard are using the prefix Sierra, X-Ray, Tango and Victor
