What is the Secure Stations Scheme?
Launched in 1998 and revised in 2003, the national Secure Stations Scheme scheme covers all rail and underground networks which are policed by British Transport Police.
How does a station qualify?
There are four main accreditation criteria:
- the design of the station must conform to standards judged by the local BTP Crime Reduction Officer to prevent and reduce crime and improve passenger perceptions;
- the management of the station must enable you to take steps to prevent crimes, respond to incidents, and communicate effectively with passengers;
- crime statistics for the station over the twelve months prior to the inspection must show that you are managing crime; and
- a survey of users must show that, on the whole, passengers feel secure when using the station.
