Private Security Companies on Trams

Interestingly enough it would be assumed that the British Transport Police would be operational with the tram travel, however private security companies provide their security personnel to ensure the safe travel of the general public on trams. It is not yet clear whether or not private security companies will at some stage be required to carry out some duties on the trams. However it seems clear the training of the British Transport police is far more superior that that of private security companies, in the last few years with the avent of the Security Industry Authority, security companies have been forced to increase the security of all of their opearation and the SIA has done a formidable job of increasing the quality of security guards currently protecting private companies.
