The IMPRESS project

The IMPRESS project (IMProving Railway sEcurity through awareneSS and training) aims to improve the protection of stations and trains by developing security training and awareness programmes for all stakeholders in rail stations and on trains (including rail staff, station shop staff, cleaning staff and other third party service provider staff). Reaching out to relevant stakeholders is paramount for ensuring the IMPRESS training and awareness programmes are sustainable, and the project has been doing just that, focusing on the ‘immediate responders’ from the railway environment who are most likely to be the first to prevent or react to a security incident when it occurs on railway premises.
