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.

Strategy and plans

Strategic plans

Every three years, we, together with the British Transport Police Authority, publish our four key objectives.  This forms the basis of the wider strategic plan that we will work to.

Our Strategic Plan sets out what we intend to achieve and deliver over a three-year period. The current plan, which runs from 2013 to 2019, 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.

Policing plans

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

Download the 2014/15 Policing Plan (PDF format).

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.

The Strategic and Policing Plans are the building blocks upon which we base performance and strive for success. Whatever activity our officers and staff are engaged in, it should directly relate to one of our strategic aims or Policing Plan objectives.
