This white paper touches on the impact of suicide when committed on the rail network and concentrates on how network video might contribute to its prevention. It describes some current suicide counter-measures and details the size of the challenge which the rail industry faces. This paper explains how IP network video can support existing measures in order to provide an effective overall suicide prevention solution.

This paper does not attempt to find broader resolution to the questions around suicide and refrains from exploring the personal and tragic circumstances surrounding many of the individuals who find themselves attempting or committing this act.
