Vital Security Solutions

Vital Rail’s Security Solutions team provides specialist railway security services to combat cable theft, trespass and vandalism.

Vital’s Security Team works with and supports the SIA in its mission to reduce criminality and raise standards in the private security industry so that the public is, and feels, safer

Vital is a leading provider of security solutions to the rail industry. Through static guarding, mobile perimeter and trackside patrolling to cutting edge technology, we deter criminal activity on the railways, particularly the theft of metals.

We work closely with the British Transport Police and Network Rail to ensure a co-ordinated approach to site security with clear lines of communication.

Our services include:

  • Covert CCTV & Surveillance
  • Mobile Security Patrols & Surveillance
  • Manned Guarding & Overt CCTV
  • Police Liaison
  • Samaritan-trained Staff
  • Security Planning & Management
  • Security Surveys
  • Specialist Trackside Security Staff
