BTP police and protect 10,000 miles of track and 3,000 railway stations every day - a network that is at the heart of Britain's community, commerce and industry. Join us and you’ll be providing specialist policing to a unique community in a unique environment, dealing with rewarding challenges that you won’t find in any other Force.

The successful candidates will patrol as directed, providing high-visibility policing within a given area and responding appropriately to emergency and non-urgent calls for assistance. You will investigate circumstances, call for and co-ordinate specialist assistance when required, and resolve incidents as appropriate.

Please note that officers selecting London as their preferred posting may be posted to any central-London station.

Please download the Candidate Information Pack for further details


We want our organisation to be as diverse as the community it serves and welcome applications from everyone. Language skills can be especially valuable to community engagement and candidates who can speak additional languages such as Hindi, Arabic, Farsi, Bengali, Urdu, Amharic, Pushtu, Punjabi, Tamil and Somali are encouraged to apply. All applications will be judged on their individual merit.
