The Department regularly works with Network Rail, the British Transport Police and Train Operating Companies to tackle instances of vandalism on the UK rail network. Earlier this year we jointly launched a new campaign - ‘You Vs Train’. The campaign raises awareness about the dangers of trespassing, with the intention reducing instances of future trespassing and acts of vandalism.

At a local level Community Rail Partnerships and station adoption groups work with local communities and the rail industry to improve stations and deal with less safety critical instances of vandalism.
