About us

man and dog10,000 miles every day

We protect and police 10,000 miles of track and 3,000 railway stations and depots every day. We police the London Underground system, the Docklands Light Railway, the Midland Metro Tram System, the Croydon Tramlink, the Sunderland Metro and the Glasgow Subway. We move and safeguard around six million people every day.

These are unique policing environments, with unique sets of needs. Our police officers and staff provide specialist policing across the country. Furthermore, with the latest technology at our disposal we’re able to deal with rail crime that crosses counties and networks.

Our people have to be trained to the highest standards in order to meet these needs. It’s a challenging environment, one with everything you would experience in another police force and quite a lot more.
