Protective Services Officers (PSOs) will start work at Melbourne's Parliament and Richmond railway stations on Tuesday tonight.
It means they will now patrol seven stations every night from six o'clock until the last train.
They include Southern Cross, Flinders Street, Footscray, Dandenong and Melbourne Central.
The State Government has promised to deploy 940 PSOs to railway stations in Melbourne and regional centres by 2014.
Assistant Commissioner Andrew Crisp said it was great to see PSOs deployed further across the network as more graduated from the Police Academy.
"PSOs will be a welcome addition at Richmond train station by the large number of commuters who use the station to attend major sporting and entertainment events in the area," Mr Crisp said.
"We continue to receive positive feedback from the travelling public and industry workers and look forward to seeing more PSOs on stations in the coming weeks and months.
"The next phase will be deploying officers to locations including North Melbourne, Box Hill, Epping and Noble Park train stations."
A further 15 PSOs graduated from the Victoria Police Academy on Friday 29 June.
They will initially work at city and central hub train stations supported by transit safety police.
New squads will regularly enter the academy training program throughout the year.
