We want to hear your views on policing the railway in 2020

The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) are seeking the views of rail staff and passengers on the BTP’s Policing Plans for 2020/21.

Every April, the BTPA publishes the policing plans for the year, including objectives, measures and resource numbers for each of its regional divisions. Prior to this, the Police Authority reaches out to colleagues in the rail industry, BTP staff, officers and other interested parties to consult on the draft content of those plans.

Hugh Ind, Chief Executive of the BTPA, said: “To hear the views of our funders and colleagues within the rail industry is imperative to help us provide an effective and efficient specialised police service for the railway in England, Scotland and Wales. The BTP faces unique policing challenges and we rely on joint working with rail staff, industry personnel and the public to protect passengers and keep the railway safe.”

To have your say on the 2020/21 BTP policing plans, please complete the survey before 7 February 2020.

You can see previous years’ plans on the the Policing Plans section of our website.
