The department comprises of Forensic Collision Investigators, Roads Policing officers, Safer Transport Operations Team who undertake the planning and administration of enforcement activities, Commercial Vehicle Unit and Abnormal Loads and Traffic Management.  

In line with the Policing Plan, we will:

  • Engage with road user groups to identify opportunities to provide timely education and enforcement activities . 
  • Pay particular attention to vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists) . 
  • Work with Transport for London by delivering special services that keep the City's roads safe . 
  • Investigate serious collisions, support victims and their families and bring offenders that flout road traffic laws to justice . 
  • Continue to undertake visible enforcement activities to deter road users from breaking traffic laws and putting other road users at risk. . 
  • Support national road strategies by complementing criminal justice sanctions for offending with an educational programme aimed at improving road skills and understanding to prevent re-offending     .

In January 2017 we continued an education campaign launched in December 2016 on obscured vision with the support of TfL as the attachment of mobile phones, Satellite Navigation, and other devices, to the interior of vehicle windscreens has been identified as a safety issue.    

Operation Regina looked at Taxi and Private Hire vehicles and was carried out during the day and at night, with some supported by Public Carriage Office and Department for Work and Pensions Office enforcement Officers.

A National Police Chief Council (NPCC) Mobile phone campaign was also carried out.

All officers were deployed for the taxi demonstrations at Bank Junction for a week in January.

Cycle security marking in conjunction with the Thames Tideway site was also carried out as part of a Cyclist education initiative with them.

In February, we carried out pedal cycle enforcement and held an Exchanging Places roadshow.

Participation in the NPCC ‘Operation Truck and Bus’ focused on enforcement of those vehicle types.

Operation Regina focused on Taxi and Private Hire enforcement.

In March we participated in the NPCC mobile phone and seatbelt enforcement campaigns and Operation Regina Taxi and Private Hire enforcement.
