South West Rail - security response

South West Rail

MAST has been appointed as a dedicated security response provider for the network working alongside the British Transport Police to make the network safer for all.

The SWR Business Plan for 2022/3 makes the commitment to security very clear:

"Our approach on safeguarding will include the introduction of the Safeguarding on Rail Scheme, promoting safeguarding across the organisation and reporting incidents to the British Transport Police. We have a series of physical and technological interventions planned to enable us to deliver on our safeguarding aims, and also improve the safety and security of our whole network. We will start the process of replacing and upgrading the CCTV system to use analytics and other emerging technology. We will further extend the provision of body worn video cameras to our colleagues across the business"
