British Transport Police (BTP) is a specialist police force responsible for policing the rail network across England, Scotland and Wales, as well as the London Underground and other rail services including Docklands Light Railway, Midland Metro tram system, Croydon Tramlink, Glasgow Subway and even the Emirates AirLine.

BTP is responsible for policing over 3 billion passenger journeys every year, keeping the public and staff who work on the railway safe and free from the fear of crime. Our key objectives are to protect people, reduce disruption, invest in our skilled and specialist workforce and provide value for money.

Our priorities are focused on these areas. Whether that’s tackling sexual offences, responding to the increasing level of violence that is being seen across the country, responding to the threat of terrorism, investigating murder, reducing trespass and incidents which cause disruption on the rail network (which unfortunately includes suicide), safeguarding the vulnerable, providing a visible and reassuring presence, or just providing directions to a member of the public – the list is vast.

In order to respond to such a wide range of incidents and calls for assistance BTP has a number of specialist units to support our neighbourhood teams – for example our vulnerability unit, our Major, Serious & Organised Crime team, our specialist response unit which includes authorised firearms officers and police dogs, our disruption team, and our local policing teams.

I am delighted to have been invited to showcase our work to the Young Rail Professionals and the event on 13 November provides me and officers from across BTP to explain in more detail about the work we do and the array of incidents we are frequently called to respond to. As well as giving a short overview of our work, officers and police staff will be present during an informal reception where you can hear on a one to one basis about their work.

The timings for the event are below – I do hope you can join us.

18.00  Arrival

18.15  Introduction to BTP

19.00  Open the floor up for questions
