Rail Security is reserved to the UK Government.

However, Transport Scotland, through the First ScotRail Franchise, deliver schemes which improve security on First ScotRail trains, and at stations managed by First ScotRail.

The franchise agreement includes capital expenditure worth over £4 million for improvements relating to security at stations and a programme of CCTV fitment to trains. In addition, I recently announced the Small Rail Projects Fund which includes proposals for investment at stations and on trains which will improve railway security in Scotland.
