Specialist Response Unit

The Specialist Response Unit (SRU) is a unique resource within British policing. These officers are trained to respond to potential CBRN incidents with specialist equipment capable of detecting and assessing powders, liquids and gases, in addition to the X-Ray of suspicious packages. They are the first responders to suspicious items and are at the forefront of determining the appropriate subsequent emergency services response to potential explosive and CBRN incidents.

Firearms

Officers from the British Transport Police Armed Policing Unit deploy across the rail network to disrupt, deter and ultimately respond to spontaneous firearms (SFI) and terrorist incidents. The team returned to the 2023 event to showcase a selection of their equipment and tactics including firearms, less lethal devices and door entry apparatus. Firearms officers were on-hand to discuss the role Armed Policing plays in enhancing station security across the UK rail network.
