Andrew Figgures to retire as BTPA Chief Executive

Andrew Figgures is to retire as Chief Executive of the British Transport Police Authority at the end of December after nearly seven years in the appointment following his 41 year career in the Army. Esther McVey, Chairman of the BTPA said,  “I am grateful to Andrew for extending his tenure at the Authority’s request to provide continuity during my first year as Chairman.  He will be greatly missed by the Force and the industry not least because of his many achievements and the manner with which he has dealt with all involved.”  He will hand over to Charlotte Vitty, the Deputy Chief Executive and Treasurer who will act as Interim Chief Executive whilst the Authority recruits a permanent replacement.
