Police Authority meeting to be held in Scotland

The BTPA will meet in Edinburgh on Tuesday 11 December to discuss the progress of its strategy and the 2019 budget, among other emerging issues.

The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA), which oversees the performance, strategy and finances of the British Transport Police, holds quarterly meetings that are partially open to members of the public – only sensitive discussions are restricted.

Chair of the BTPA, Ron Barclay-Smith, said: “The quarterly Authority meetings are a great opportunity to hear about upcoming projects, challenges and improvements planned by the British Transport Police.

“Not many people realise that the public can attend these meetings, and as passengers and station users they may be interested to hear about how the BTP works to reduce disruption and protect the public using the railway.”

Spaces are limited so if you are interested in attending the meeting, please contact [email protected] for more details.

Authority meetings for 2019 are being scheduled across England and Wales, and details of these will be advertised on btpa.police.uk.
