What We Do
Moving ¼ Million Tonnes of Freight
Safeguarding 6 Million People
The railways lie at the heart of Britain's community, commerce and industry. In fact, the Government's integrated transport policy promises to give them an increasing role in the life and prosperity of the nation. Over a quarter of a million tonnes of freight is moved from depots to docks and over six million people travel every day on Britain's railways.
We make sure that all this takes place within a safe and secure environment – one free from disruption and the fear of crime.
We also police sporting and major events such as football,
rugby, major concerts, demonstrations, Pride events, Marathons and
events in Hyde Park. A testament to this was the way we helped
police the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. There was a
massive demand on our transport system throughout the Games,
especially in London. With meticulous planning and by working
together seamlessly, we were able to ensure that new and regular
travelers felt safe and welcome.
It’s the way our Police Officers and Staff work that really sets us apart — we have a friendly, open and engaging style. We’re always looking for ways to work more effectively and deliver value for money to the public. One of the main things the public and rail operators notice is the way our people go out of their way to help anyone in distress.
We’re actively working towards creating a workforce that
reflects the communities we serve and is a place where people feel
valued and respected. Furthermore, valuing diversity and promoting
equal opportunities is at the heart of our vision, mission and
values. BTP strive to recruit the best calibre people with
the best possible attitude.
