The British Transport Police Leaving Home project: The impact of the transfer of British Transport Police (BTP) D Division into Police Scotland on officers and staff


This research project investigates the impact of integration on British Transport Police officers and staff in Scotland, exploring issues of organisational identity, community, and attachment. The project also amplifies the voices of BTP officers and staff during a contested period of organisational change. This academic research is independent and does not rely on any funding. Assistance, however, was provided by the BTP Federation in relation to accessing participants. The research has full ethical approval from the University of the West of Scotland.
