Answered by: Michael Matheson 20 September 2017
Work on the integration of railway policing into Police Scotland is being taken forward by a Joint Programme Board led by the Scottish and UK Governments and with membership from British Transport Police, Police Scotland and both Authorities. The Scottish Government has made a commitment to provide ongoing reports to Parliament on progress towards integration, with the next update expected in October.
