New CCTV hub will help make rail travel even safer18/05/2012
Commenting on the official opening of the British Transport Police's new London CCTV hub, Michael Roberts, ATOC Chief Executive, said: “Bringing together vital information gathered through CCTV by all operators serving London and the south east, plus that of the BTP and Network Rail, means that the industry is able to ensure rail travel in the capital is safer than ever.
“Train companies have been improving and extending their own CCTV, and the new central hub will build on that to not only benefit the millions of people visiting and travelling around London this summer, but also those commuters and passengers who use the network every day. The hub will help the industry continue to reduce the level of crime on the railways, and reassure passengers that we are always working hard to keep them as safe as possible.”
