MOSCOW, November 30, 23:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow’s subway will spend more than two billion roubles on security in 2014, including 300 million roubles to hire additional security personnel to ensure law and order at its stations.
Security personnel will be authorised to search passengers and check their documents, the newspaper Izvestia said on Saturday, November 30.
A contract for 24-hour security services will be published in February 2014.
The State Duma is now debating amendments to the Law “On Transport Security,” which determine the powers and status of transport security units that will now be allowed to search passengers.
The newspaper said the subway would spend more than 120 million roubles to create a security management centre in a separate building next to one of the subway stations in 2014. The centre will receive video images and data from metal, radiation and explosive detectors. Its personnel will undergo special training and will wear special uniform.
Almost two billion roubles will be used to buy inspection posts to be set up at the entrances to the stations and purchase security equipment.
