COMMUTERS are helping police crack down on crime on trains and at railway stations.
Images of alleged offenders displayed on video screens at Elizabeth and Adelaide railway stations has led to the identification of 25 people, while a further 35 have been identified via the SA Police Facebook page.
Police figures show 94 crimes were reported along the Gawler railway line between March 1 and July 30 this year.
Thirty offences were on trains, while 64 were reported at stations and interchanges.
The highest crime rates were recorded at Salisbury, Smithfield and Greenfields, police said.
Transit Police Chief Inspector Ashley Gordon said an expansion of the transit department by about 30 officers, to 104 transit police, in July last year had helped reduce crime on public transport.
"High visibility policing and targeted operations have had an effect making all transit routes safer," he said.
An operation targeting hotels along the Gawler train line was conducted earlier this month in an effort to reduce the number of intoxicated people leaving hotels and boarding trains late at night.
Three arrests were made and 16 expiation notices were issued for disorderly behaviour, cannabis possession and other minor offences.
