Station CCTV Programme Completed
All of Southern's 157 railway stations now have 24 hour live, digital CCTV coverage.
New CCTV systems have been installed at 24 stations where previously there was no coverage, and CCTV systems at a further 27 stations have been modified so that the images are now fed directly to Southern's CCTV control centre in Croydon.
Richard Hands, Southern's Customer Information Systems Project Manager said: "Now every Southern station can be monitored in real time, 24 hours a day at our CCTV control centre. Gone are the days where there was no coverage at all, or images were fed into a VHS video recorder in the ticket office. This state of the art technology now means that dedicated operators can monitor any of our stations at any time."
Stations that now have new CCTV systems where before there were none are:
Amberley Newhaven Harbour
Appledore Normans Bay
Edenbridge Pevensey & Westham
Faygate Pevensey Bay
Glynde Three Oaks
Richard added: "Not only does this mean that our stations are even safer for our passengers than they were before, but because the images are stored digitally, the images are always available for review by police should this become necessary."
