The Strategic Defence and Security Review included a commitment to “integrate infrastructure policing further and to review the options to do this”. The cross-Whitehall review team have been working with British Transport Police, Ministry of Defence Police and Civil Nuclear Constabulary, and they are a part of the governance structure and have provided expert input into the review. No decisions have yet been taken.
