The British Transport Police (BTP) is a national special police force that polices railways and light-rail systems in England, Scotland and Wales, for which it has entered into an agreement to provide such services. Seventy five percent of the force's funding comes from Britain's privatised train companies. British Transport Police officers do not have jurisdiction in Northern Ireland unless working under mutual aid arrangements for the Police Service of Northern Ireland, in which case any duties performed on a railway will be merely incidental to working as a constable in Northern Ireland.
As well as having jurisdiction across the national rail network, the BTP is also responsible for policing:
- Croydon Tramlink
- Docklands Light Railway
- Emirates Air Line
- Glasgow Subway
- London Underground
- Midland Metro
- Sunderland line of the Tyne and Wear Metro (between Fellgate and South Hylton)
This amounts to around 10,000 miles of track and more than 3,000 railway stations and depots. There are more than 1 billion passenger journeys annually on the main lines alone.
It is not responsible for policing the rest of the Tyne and Wear Metro or the Manchester Metrolink or any other railway with which it does not have a service agreement; it can act as a constabulary for a transport system in Great Britain with which it commences a service agreement.
A BTP constable can act as a police constable outside of their normal railway jurisdiction as described in the "Powers and status of officers" section.
