Transport police seek volunteers in South Yorkshire

Have your say

Volunteers are being sought to help advise British Transport Police.

The body responsible for policing the railways, is looking for members of the public and rail staff to join its Indpendent Advisory Group for the Pennines.

The role would suit those who have a general interest in railways and the railway community, in particularly those who have strong links to local communities.

They will work in an advisory role to provide feedback and advice on how BTP’s actions are interpreted by members of the public.

The key aim of the panel is to strengthen relationships between BTP and local community groups.

David Rams, Pennine independent advisory group coordinator for BTP, said: “We are keen to expand our membership of this already very successful group. 
“We want more people to have their say in the policing of the railways in their area and are now looking for new members in Leeds, York, Newcastle, Sheffield, Chester, Carlisle and Doncaster.

“However we would like to hear from anyone who is interested in joining the group from other areas.”
