I am a police cadet with west mercia constabulary and we get free bus and train travel ONLY if we are traveling to work and IN uniform, this seems strange as PC, SC and CSO's all get free travel with west mercia but not in the BTP (and they police the public transport system!

News item just placed on MPS internal system - MPS PCSOs and Traffic Wardens retain access to free travel on/off duty, under following conditions:-

1) they must show MPS identity pass with words "COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICER" or "TRAFFIC WARDEN" embossed on the front with their photo clearly displayed;

2) it applies to BUSES ONLY - not any train, tube or tram service unless specifically agreed locally on Borough Commander's direction;

3) any PCSO, TW or police staff member attempting to use free travel on a BUS in London WITHOUT (1) will not be permitted to travel and may be considered as committing a serious discipline offence;

4) the free travel option is a privilege granted on the assumption that if something happens, the PCSO/TW will act as a professional witness and take any other appropriate action.

Full details on Intranet!

The problem is its not in BTP's hands.
Thereason different BTP divisions in london have different rules is because the rail companys who have to agree with it have a different opinion.
For PC's it is slightly different, a) because the benifits of a copper travelling for free (on and off duty) are more obvious, and importantly, more familiar, and bossess are more comfortable with it.
We are now treading onto new ground with you guys.

As for gaining entry to stations, PACE would apply to anyone saving life/limb and certainly to PC's for instant pursuit of offenders, not sure if tha applys to you though, perhaps anyone else can expand.
I also believe there is a railway byelaw(possibly comes under the trespass law) that gives a specific exemption to constables in the execution of their duty. (ie on duty patrolling).
This of course needs to be specifically targetted at the railway (not simply using it as a means of transport, unless the specific agreement to travel is in place), but when does travelling stop and patrolling begin? :wink:

Just thought I would say I get free travel on LU/DLR/Tram links/Buses/SW trains/SE trains!

As far as I am aware you can only enter private property if you are to save life or limb, besides the Railway have their own laws to run by as I'm sure the BTPPCSO's will learn about :)

You can have it on excellent authority (thats me :) ) that ALL PCSO's including the MET will be allowed free travel whilst on duty in full uniform. BTP PCSO's will be entitled to free travel at all times on production of there 'staff card'. These changes should take efect from 22nd May 2005

I think it's outrageous if a PCSO is 'on a job' and they are not permitted free Tube Travel..... :twisted:

Kentish with regards to the Tannoy Incident, did you feel your little cheeks go pink :?: :oops:

Mine would have done :!:
