New Hub Will Help Cut Transport Crime

A new central hub in London linking all 33,000 CCTV cameras on our public transport network will help police tackle crime more quickly.

The number of crimes on Britain's railways has fallen for the eighth year in a row.

British Transport Police have told London's Heart the new control room will free up officers' time, therefore helping levels of robbery, theft and vandalism to continue to fall.

Chief Constable Andy Trotter said:

"We can manage incidents. We can push video streams out to people at the scenes to help them with investigations.

"We've seen crime come down dramatically over the last few years and CCTV plays a major part in that.''
