Lucy D’Orsi agrees contract extension to continue as BTP Chief Constable

The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) have agreed a three-year contract extension with Chief Constable Lucy D’Orsi CVO QPM.

Lucy, who joined the British Transport Police (BTP) as Chief Constable in February 2021, will now continue to lead the force into 2028. The extension has been confirmed by the Secretary of State for Transport.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper said: “Lucy has provided excellent leadership for the BTP as it fulfilled its vital role of keeping people safe across Britain. I am delighted she has agreed to extend her tenure as Chief Constable and I look forward to continuing to support her work and that of the BTP as a whole.”

Chair of the BTPA, Ron Barclay-Smith, said: “I am delighted that Lucy will continue to lead BTP into 2028. Since 2021, Lucy’s leadership has seen huge progress in transformational areas – the Force’s use of data and technology is helping officers to prevent harm and protect the most vulnerable, while her unwavering commitment to tackling Violence against Women and Girls has seen a huge increase in reporting, leading to more intelligence-gathering and more offenders off our rail network. I look forward to what we can achieve together in the future.”
