CFF/SBB Security (Geneva <-> Lausanne)?

I have noticed that there are now often 3-4 security personell wandering the corridors on most IR trains from Morges to Lausanne (I usually take a train between 16:00 - 17:00). I have only see the Police on the RER trains once or twice but must be something more specific I guess...

Any idea why all this security all of a sudden (or maybe its always been like that)?

They are cracking down on criminals and fare dodgers.

Isn't their job to support the controlling CFF staff? Some fare-dodgers can be really aggressive, and there are pickpockets too. I would imagine that's the people that they're targeting with this new security team.

Train conductors are being attacked quite frequently...and thus, the increased security on trains.

Never saw the police on this route but my dad got robbed on it so I am glad they are doing something.
