From today, you might see some of our officers at stations around Scotland carrying TASER devices.

Each of the officers has been through a rigorous training programme, which will be refreshed on a regular basis. They will only be using the equipment if they feel there is a serious threat to the safety of themselves or a member of the public.

It means our officers in Scotland are now in line with their colleagues on the rail network in England and Wales.
