Railway stations get 24-hour CCTV

PEVENSEY and Westham and Pevensey Bay railway stations now have 24-hour live CCTV coverage.

Richard Hands, from Southern, 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.

“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.”
