Targets and management approach
Security is an important commodity and a basic requirement of our customers and employees. We have a great deal of responsibility for many people and goods – around the clock. The security units are in an ongoing dialog with security authorities. In the joint rail security center, Group security exchanges status information with the Federal police around the clock. The six operations centers in DB Security’s regional areas successfully coordinate all regional security issued and are available to be contacted by our business units at any time. In total more than 5,000 Federal police officers and about 4,000 security staff from DB Security are deployed across Germany. Both DB Group and the German Federal Police are continuously recruiting additional employees and expanding their training capacities. More than 400 young people are currently undertaking specialist training in safety and security at DB Group. More than 120 vocational trainees started their three-year apprenticeship in September 2019.
