Transport Secretary announces appointment of Dyan Crowther to help develop transport policing strategy.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has today (28 May 2015) announced the appointment of a new member of the British Transport Police Authority (BTPA).

Dyan Crowther, Chief Operating Officer of Govia Thameslink Railway, which operates Thameslink and Great Northern services, took up her appointment on 6 May 2015 for a 4-year term. She will bring her extensive knowledge of the rail industry to help the authority develop its policing strategy.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said:

We already have one of the safest railways in Europe, but we can’t be complacent. Dyan Crowther will bring considerable skills and experience to the authority. I am confident that she will strengthen its effectiveness both in policing and in ensuring the smooth running of the network.

Dyan Crowther has worked in the rail industry for more than 25 years, having held a number of senior positions with train operators and Network Rail.

Dyan said:

"British Transport Police do an excellent job of keeping our railways safe for passengers and, working with our own crime prevention team, have helped reduce recorded crime by 9% in the past year on our Thameslink and Great Northern routes. I am honoured to be offered this role."

The BTPA was established in 2004 to improve the public accountability of British Transport Police.
