Crime and disorder on public transport
Making contact with transport providers and the BTP
You can find out which TOCs have services in your area by looking at the rail maps on the National Rail Enquiries website: www.nationalrail.co.uk. This also provides links to the websites of the TOCs themselves.
Ring the customer service number (found from the National Rail Enquiries website) and ask to be put in touch with the person responsible for crime reduction and security.
The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) website provides Regional Contacts, who you could telephone to find out how to contact the bus operators in your area. The address is www.cpt-uk.org.
Alternatively, you could ring the CPT centrally on 020 7240 3131 and they will give you the contact details you need.
Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Associations
The local authority licensing department may hold regular meetings with the taxi and private hire trade, or be willing to hold a special meeting to discuss issues relating to crime and disorder. If not, the national or London association for the trade should be able to put you in contact with your local association.

Rail Community Safety Partnership Groups
The central point of contact is Network Rail’s Head of Community Safety, whose telephone number is 0203 356 9390.
 ‘Crucial Crew’ – which is named differently in some parts of the country – uses scenarios to teach primary school aged children important safety lessons.
 At the time of publication these are the Transport Operational Command Unit (TOCU) of the Metropolitan Police and the Safer Travel Police Team of the West Midlands Police,
 Operation Greyhound is targeted at drug offences. Police surround and enter the bus to stop and search passengers. Operation Trojan uses a ‘dummy’ bus to attract stone-throwing. Police on and following the bus then apprehend offenders. Operation Snowball is a revenue protection initiative.
