In response to the incident in which passengers were cut in the train on the Odakyu Line running in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism increased the number of security cameras in trains and stations, and informed passengers of the occurrence of an emergency from inside the train. We are requesting railway operators nationwide to take measures such as thoroughly disseminating the "reporting device".

Last month, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism strengthened security and suffered damage in the unlikely event of an incident after a passenger was cut with a knife in a car on the Odakyu Line running in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo, and 10 people were seriously injured. We have summarized the measures to minimize it.



Specifically, we plan to increase the number of security cameras inside trains and station premises, and to strengthen patrols by security guards inside trains, including stations and conventional lines.



In addition, since passengers are not fully aware of the "emergency notification device" that informs the conductor of the occurrence of an emergency from inside the train, railways nationwide should be thoroughly informed about the installation location and usage in an easy-to-understand manner. I am asking the business operator.



At a press conference on the 24th, Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Akabane said, "I would like to work hard to strengthen the security of railway companies in cooperation with railway operators, police and other related organizations so that passengers can use it with peace of mind." rice field.
