Our work

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and British Transport Police (BTP) are our partners in delivering a safe and secure Victoria within the Government Security Zone. We offer local businesses high-level professional advice and expertise. Businesses are represented on five targeted steering groups that meet regularly to determine and monitor our programmes and projects that provide additional support for existing policing services in the area.

The Safer Transport Team

The Victoria Hub Team was set up in addition to the existing police structure to cover the external public areas of Victoria Station, Victoria bus terminal and the Victoria Coach Station.

Police Hub

The Police Hub brings together the MPS and the BTP working in partnership to reduce crime and improve passenger safety in and around London Victoria Station, Network Rail property, Victoria Underground Station and Victoria Coach Station.
