Our strategy and plans

In order to ensure we are delivering the best possible service to the public, we work within a strategic plan and set a yearly policing plan to help us meet our objectives.

Strategic plan

Our current Strategic Plan, as agreed with the British Transport Authority, sets out what we intend to achieve and deliver over a five year period. It runs from 2013 to 2019 and will see us:

  • Helping to keep rail transport systems running
  • Helping to make the railway safer and more secure
  • Deliver value for money through continuous improvement
  • Promoting confidence in use of the railway.

In addition to our Strategic Plan, we also publish our Policing Plans every year.

Our annual Policing Plans set out how we will deliver our strategic aims, specifically over the next 12 months, and details the targets against which our success will be measured. They cover both local and national objectives, ensuring we strike the right balance between local and national needs.
