British Transport Police

We're thrilled to have British Transport Police exhibiting at International Security Expo 2021. Come and see representatives from British Transport Police on stand B85 where they will be demonstrating the 3 core areas of British Transport Police: 

  • Citizens in Policing
  • Explosive Search Dogs
  • BTP Firearms Officers and Special Operations


“British Transport Police Firearms Officers provide both a proactive and reactive armed policing capability, in order to detect, disrupt and deter terrorist and criminal activity across the railway network. We are delighted to be returning to this year’s ISE, where we will be showcasing a selection of the equipment and tools with which we achieve that aim, ranging from firearms, less lethal devices, door entry apparatus and medical supplies. Officers will be present to demonstrate the use of this equipment, to discuss the role of BTP Special Operations and to talk about the part the unit plays in policing both London and other major cities across the country”

Dog Section – Explosive Search Dogs

British Transport Police were one of the first police forces in the country to use police dogs introducing them in 1908, making the dog section over 100 years old. They have over 50 dogs working across England, Scotland and Wales who play a vital role in keeping the rail network a safe environment for those who use it. They specialise in a number of disciplines including General Purpose Dogs, Firearms Support Dogs, Drug Detection Dogs and Explosive Search Dogs.

Explosive search dogs engage in high-visibility protective security patrols, providing both people-scanning and pro-active search capabilities in order to deter and disrupt terrorism on the railway network. Over this two day event an experienced BTP dog handler will be present to demonstrate the capability of their Explosive Search Dog, showcasing their search capabilities and effectiveness in responding to any threat.

Citizens in Policing (CiP)

CiP is about volunteering with BTP; as a Police Support Volunteer, a Cadet Leader or as a Special Constable. Engaging in these roles will give an insider’s view of policing and be a part of a team that values your contribution. Come and speak with the team to find out more.
