I understand from my hon. Friend's office that his question refers to the College of Policing. The British Transport Police (BTP) supports the College of Policing in its objective to become the professional body for the police service. The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA)—the BTP's governing body—has played an active part in the development of the role and status of the college in the new policing landscape. During this period of transition, both the BTP and the BTPA have closely followed the new professional guidance published by college and have made progress in implementing new standards.
