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

Security on trains

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
