So from what I made out from your comment then, the orange vest officers are the PTA Train Security, and the yellow WAPOL-like vested officers are Wilson bus security? I was under the assumption that PTA had both their own employee's and contracted Wilson staff. I'll be the 4th message to admit my fault then.
Fleet numbers are a unique number assigned to the vehicle. For example fleet 123 might be allocated to Delta One and may carry Delta One markings however if fleet 247 is under going servicing the Delta One shift might be allocated to a fleet 456 which carries Delta Ten markings however they would still be referred to as Delta One and conduct Delta One duties.
Transit Officers are solely employed by the PTA. In order to be designated with the appropriate powers under the PTA act you must be employed by the authority. These powers are in addition to their powers as special constables under the Government Railways Act.
Nope I am referring to Transit Officers. Day trains are populated by both Revenue Protection and Transit Officers. Transit staff levels have increased enough to permit this.
Transperth Security and Transit Officers use different radio networks and should never share the same channels.
MSS Security provide Revenue and static guards for the Transperth Train Operations.
