he Victorian Opposition has promised security officers for the Bendigo, Eaglehawk and Kangaroo Flat train stations, if it wins government.
The Opposition released its transport security policy yesterday.
It includes more security officers for stations in Bendigo, after 6:00pm (AEDT)
Police spokesman Peter Ryan says it is a response to a growing security problem on the regional train network.
"People do have concerns about safety and security on our transport system, the people of Bendigo included," he said.
"This will mean that every day of the year, until the last train runs, there'll be protective service officers on the platform."
But the Police Minister and Bendigo West MP Bob Cameron says the Opposition's plans are not possible.
He says that is because of a cap on protective service officers, which the Opposition refused to lift.
"They want to put on more protective service officers but last month in Parliament they blocked legislation in the Upper House to allow more protective service officers," he said.
"They just said something they know they can't deliver because they blocked legislation that'd allow more protective service officers to be delivered."
