McArthur: British Transport Police expertise must be protected

Responding to evidence provided by the British Transport Police on the importance of specialist transport policing, ahead of their appearing at Justice Committee on Tuesday, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP commented: 

“Evidence from the British Transport Police issues a clear and stark warning: specialists are required to provide the consistent levels of service that passengers and railway staff are accustomed to and expect. 

“The Scottish Government must show that it has learned from the calamitous centralisation of Police Scotland. That starts with explaining how this expertise will be protected and ring-fenced in future.”
