The most effective way of tackling and preventing crime is to have a comprehensive understanding of what the problem is, including the extent and impact it has on geography, products, services and people. This information is always obtained through research.
Offences may be reduced by both targeted police activity following effective intelligence based deployments and also by detecting offences that have been committed and successfully prosecuting offenders.
The basis of policing the wider transport system reflects the strategic community safety priorities identified in the Transport for London “Community Safety Plan 2008-09” which are:
1. Improve perception of safety and security on the transport system
2. Reduce anti-social behaviour on the transport system
3. Reduce crime on the transport system by focusing on priority crime
4. Reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured in collisions resulting from criminal or anti-social behaviour
Priority crimes on the public transport network in London mentioned in section (3) above include:
• Violent Crime
• Hate Crime
• Theft of Passenger.
