"The British Transport Police (BTP) performs a crucial role in securing an increasingly busy network for rail users. Funded by the industry and backed by dedicated transport expertise and resourcing, it helps to deliver a safer, more punctual network for passengers and freight customers.
"We support the desire for the Scottish people to have greater local accountability and want to see the policing of the railway in Scotland maintain its close links with the rest of the industry. With over 21 million cross-border rail journeys a year and rising, it is vital that any changes are very carefully thought through to ensure that police forces continue to closely co-ordinate activities across the network and build on the good work already in place."
