Securing Stockholm

17 February 2007  •  Author(s): Henrik Virro, Project Manager, SL

Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL), the regional transport authority responsible for running metro, buses, commuter trains and local railways in Sweden’s capital city, is in the process of improving security across its network.

The ‘Security Project’ is designed to raise security for the travelling public as well as SL’s workers. The project includes the installation of a new video and alarm management system, which will be installed at all stations in the Stockholm metro system by October 2007. It also involves the installation of CCTV cameras across SL’s fleet of buses. According to SL, the project intends to: minimise the number of robberies and attacks; help provide the police with proof of crimes; reduce the cost of vandalism; reduce the numbers of injuries and deaths; increase the sense of security for SL travellers and personnel; shorten response times in alarm situations; minimise false alarms; and minimise public transport disruption. Christian Shelton spoke to Henrik Virro, Project Manager at SL, to find out more.
