Andrew Mitchell MP congratulates Four Oaks Station on their winning Secure Stations Scheme

6th May 2011

Andrew Mitchell MP has congratulated Four Oaks rail station managers and staff following their re-accreditation under the Secure Stations Scheme.

Andrew Mitchell MP said, “I understand that Four Oaks station has retained the stipulated national standards in station, passenger and staff security and you and your staff are to be congratulated on this.

“It is reassuring to me and my constituents to know that this level of security is being maintained at Four Oaks Station.”

The Secure Stations Scheme is an opportunity for Britain’s rail companies to improve security at their stations and display to their customers their desire to reduce crime. Recognising the public\'s fear of crime at stations, the Scheme provides an incentive to station operators to improve security and provide reassurance to passengers and staff. It establishes standards of good practice and accredits individual stations which have worked with the British Transport Police and other local partners to implement security measures.
