Secure Stations Scheme
The scheme was started in 1998 and is open to the operators of any rail network policed by the British Transport Police. Each station is assessed separately; operators may choose to opt in or out of the scheme from time to time and accreditation for stations may lapse.
The criteria for accreditation cover four key areas:
- design of the station
- management of the station
- management of crime levels
- passenger perception of security
As of 24 April 2006, there are currently 252 accredited stations.
