Military discipline on trains Visible safety on trains Secure safety on trains

2015-08-04 06:00

I have read about how passengers are being targeted by ruthless criminals on the trains crisscrossing our suburbs. All manner of weapons are being used to put the fear of God into paying passengers to relieve them of their property.

Metrorail, in conjunction with the railway police, have to take up this challenge and put measures in place to first try and prevent criminals committing these train robberies and to hunt those down and arrest them using conventional and unconventional methods.

There has to be visible and undercover staff from Metrorail security and railway police members on our trains.

This blatant targeting of Metrorail passengers and property must be addressed in a visible manner so that criminals and passengers are aware that their safety is receiving the utmost attention. Metrorail and the police have to, in a military discipline fashion, launch and activate tangible operations to address crime on the rails and the public needs to hear about these plans and successes via newspaper releases on a regular basis.

There is no other way but the committed dedicated crime prevention and criminal detection way to ensure the safety of Metrorail’s passengers and property.

As an old member of the railway police this matter is close to my heart. I was part of that force that rode the train, visited the stations, railway property in undercover and visible operations. We were very successful because we were on the rails riding the trains with our passengers to ensure their safety.
