Since 2010 when the Protective Service Officer’s (PSOs) were first introduced to the network, there has been ongoing negotiations between the RTBU and The Police Association (TPA) regarding PSO involvement on the rail network.
Moving forward, since September last year PSOs have been introduced on the network and are permitted to travel on some trains. Prior to this, PSOs were not permitted to travel on trains or trams.
There are now 25 roving PSOs who are permitted to travel on trains and trams. Earlier on during the consultation involving all parties, there was an agreement that AO and PSO workshops would be created with RTBU representatives and TPA representatives to engage and build relationships moving forward.
In the last two weeks, we have held two workshops involving the Delegates and officials of the AO grade and PSO grade.
The workshops have been successful so far with many attendees from both the RTBU and TPA and we look forward to progressing with a positive working relationship in the future.
The greater we as rail workers can work with the PSOs, the safer our network will be.
