Welcome to the Safer Travel Partnership
Centro, West Midlands Police, British Transport Police and Transport Operators make up the Safer Travel Partnership, which exists to make public transport in the West Midlands even safer.
Whilst the public transport network enjoys a very low crime rate, the Safer Travel Partnership is committed to making it even safer and importantly making people feel safe. To achieve this intelligence is gathered from a variety of sources to identify areas of the network that maybe vulnerable to crime, anti social behaviour and nuisance behaviour.
The Partnership uses information gathered to engage in numerous activities to address issues including reassurance and enforcement patrols, work with schools and colleges as well as covert operations.
The Partnership, the first of its type in the country, also has access to around 1000 CCTV cameras which are located at Bus, Rail and Metro stations, Park and Ride sites, Bus routes and in Bus shelters. The dedicated control centre is staffed 24 hours a day to spot and respond to incidents.
