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!

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!
