Safer Transport Team
Transport for London (TfL) has an obligation to develop, implement and encourage safe transport facilities and services to, from and within London and the City of London.
To achieve TfL requirements, City of London Police have an agreement in place with TfL for a specially funded police service. This is the Safer Transport Operations Team (STOT) which plans and co ordinates policing activity to achieve agreed aims and objectives relevant to the policing of transport and communication links in the City of London.
The Team is led by Inspector Sarah Smallwood and we work alongside colleagues from the Metropolitan Police’s Safer Transport Team ,British Transport Police
and colleagues in the Taxi & Private Hire Directorate of TFL
What we focus on
There are two main areas of activity:
- Policing Taxi and Private Hire operations within the City of London
- Enforcement and education campaigns targeting other road users aimed at making the transport systems and infrastructure in the City of London safer to use.
