Passengers, as well as those waiting at railway stations to collect family and friends, are experiencing improved safety and security with the deployment of Victoria Police Protective Services Officers (PSO’s)to Waverley railway stations.

As part of the Victorian Coalition Government’s plan to improve public safety on public transport, every metropolitan railway station will be remanned from 6pm until the last train every day of the year, through the recruitment, training and deployment of 940 Victoria Police PSO’s.

During these times, the PSO teams patrol railway stations, assist passengers with enquiries and offer them an escort to their vehicles parked at railway stations. The PSO teams operate in addition to other staffing levels put in place by train operator Metro, such as staffing at host and premium stations.

Victoria Police PSO’s were recently deployed to Mt Waverley station to supplement other railway stations in Monash where they are already operating. I look forward to further PSO deployments by Victoria Police in Waverley over the next twelve months.
