A New South Wales Transport officer has advised today of what is happening with State Transit Officers.
That is, currently City Rail Transit officers have mostly been asked to spend more time on train station barriers rather than spending more time looking after revenue offenders and safety on trains. This is come from directions from their superiors.
There are also rumours floating around that their jobs will be replaced by the New South Wales Police. Yet 12 years ago a similar situation happen and as time went by the Police officers on trains were called out to urgent community safety duties and the State Transit officers came back on board!
My question would be, 'Who would replace the New South Wales Police Officers that come off community duty to then do their duty on trains?'
So which protection on public transport would you like?
