This was the first police force in the world to make use of dogs in police work and their role has developed to become a vital part of operations. Trained dogs and their handlers can track and find people, evidence or even explosives. The presence of a dog handler can also be an invaluable element in maintaining public order.

Crime Prevention

Prevention is better than cure and the more that can be done to prevent crime, the less the cost and disruption to railway operators and their customers.


Undertaking administrative and specialist functions to support operational police officers are over 400 civilian employees who form an integral part of the policing team.
