Rail Security

019Copper theft is a nationwide problem that is affecting our utility and transport services, such as the London Underground, the Eurostar, and the main UK rail links.

Impact Security has worked particularly closely with the Eurostar contractor, Carillion, to protect the line from London to the mouth of the Channel Tunnel. Our outstanding success led to Network Rail and major construction firm Bechtel employing our cable protection services on a multimillion pound contract in the Nuneaton and Warwickshire area.

The factors that made us stand out from our competitors were our management structure, and a workforce that mostly comprises of former British Army personnel. All staff working on the project had been hand-picked from Colchester’s ex-military personnel, and their training in surveillance and observation meant they were ideally suited to work alongside British Transport Police to prevent cable theft.

All Impact Security operatives were also trained and qualified in Scenes of Crime and Personal Track Safety. They carried handcuffs and were able to draw on Physical Intervention and First Aid training. Throughout the day they assumed an overt security role, alerting thieves to their presence, then at night they undertook covert security, so the criminals didn’t know where they were.

Impact Security is also working towards Community Safety Accreditation as we are the first point of call when there is a suspected trespass on a railway line. We arrive at the scene and then report to BTP if they are required to attend. We are able to help all transport and utility companies safeguard their valuable assets. Please get in touch to find out how else we can help you.
