Protective Services Officers

Putting Protective Services Officers at each of Melbourne's 200-odd railway stations was the brainchild of Ted Baillieu and his 'OMG the rail network is swarming with evildoers so each station needs two guys with guns' policy of the 2010 State Election. In reality a handful of stations need the riot squad and the rest see no crime, but since when has a politician backed down from their stupid promises?
