Over a third of the 2,500 stations on the network now have CCTV, as do an increasing number of trains. Over 600 stations are accredited under the Secure Stations scheme which was launched in 1998 to improve security at overground and underground stations for both passengers and staff.
More remains to be done, but the most recent National Passenger Survey showed only 8 per cent. of passengers dissatisfied about their personal security while at the station and 6 per cent. dissatisfied about their security while on the train.
