The news of heightened visibility patrols comes after officers were called to Dunfermline Town Railway Station last Friday following a report that a train conductor had been assaulted by a group of youths whilst a service was stopped within the station.
In an unrelated incident, officers were also called to Inverkeithing Railway Station on Sunday November 15 after the driver of a Glenrothes to Edinburgh passenger service was spat on by a male who was part of a group within the station.
There was also a spittle incident in Glasgow on Saturday November 14 when an adult male targeted a Scotrail member of staff.
British Transport Police said enquiries are ongoing for all incidents.
In a Twitter post earlier this morning, the Kirkcaldy Police Division posted a message on behalf of the British Transport Police.
It stated: “In response to recent anti-social behaviour in the Fife area, we have increased high visibility patrols. We will not tolerate spittle assaults, vandalism, or threatening and
abusive behaviour on rail staff.”
"As always, British Transport Police officers will continue to patrol the rail network across Scotland to ensure that the railway remains a safe and secure place to travel.
"During this difficult time we would also ask that parents check in with their children so that they know where they are in the evening. At the moment everyone should be adhering
to the Scottish Government guidelines around only travelling when essential.”
