Joanne McCartney, London Assembly Member for Enfield & Haringey, has welcomed the announcement by Transport for London (TfL) that they will be funding more police to work out of train stations in Enfield & Haringey.

Transport for London (TfL) will be investing more than £6m during the next two years to fund the extra officers. The teams of officers, to be rolled out over the first few months of 2009, will provide visible reassurance, particularly after dark, as well as community engagement at stations in Enfield & Haringey.

Joanne McCartney, London Assembly Member for Enfield & Haringey, said, "I am campaigning for more safety measures at train stations and this announcement by TfL is very welcome.

"Speaking with commuters I have found that nothing makes them feel safer at a train station late at night than a policeman or a member of staff. The improvements in CCTV coverage are welcome at train stations, but nothing beats having them staffed, especially at night and at weekends.
