PEEL: Police effectiveness - An inspection of British Transport Police
In October 2016, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue services (HMICFRS) was commissioned by the Under Secretary of State for Transport to inspect the effectiveness of the British Transport Police (BTP) using the methodology set out in HMICFRS’s autumn 2017 PEEL all-force inspection programme.
The inspection took place in December 2017. This report sets out HMICFRS’s findings in five sections:
- preventing crime and tackling anti-social behaviour; ;
- investigating crime and reducing re-offending;
- protecting vulnerable people;
- tackling serious and organised crime; and
- specialist capabilities.
This report sits along side an inspection of the BTP’s efficiency, legitimacy and leadership, which was published in December 2017.
