Police and Crime Commissioners: candidate briefing

British Transport Police Authority has today published a briefing document for Police and Crime Commissioner candidates to help them understand the role of BTPA and BTP in policing the railways.

Elections for the first Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales are scheduled to take place on Thursday 15 November. BTPA was not affected by the provisions of Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, which replaces territorial police authorities, and will retain its existing structure after the election next month.
