British Transport Police (BTP)

The British Transport Police have responsibility for policing the UK’s rail network, as well as other services such as London Underground, Docklands Light Railway and Croydon Tramlink. If you find yourself accused of committing an offence on-board one of these services you may be subject to an interview at a train station, or be taken to a police station so that the police can interview you there. In such circumstances, the Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith Solicitors are on hand to provide you with the very best legal representation.

The remit of the British Transport Police is broad, with officers having all the powers of a police constable in relation to offences that take place on the UK's rail networks. As such, British Transport Police officers may place you under arrest if they reasonably suspect that you have committed a crime, if they believe that a crime is about to be committed or if they suspect that information you have provided is false. If you are arrested and subject to questioning at a police station you are entitled to have a solicitor present. The Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith Solicitors, with many years’ experience in handling cases involving British Transport Police, are excellently placed to conduct a robust defence for you from the earliest stage. We regularly appear in court on behalf of our clients, providing representation in all types of criminal cases.
