Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received 1 November 2012

As a result of the excellent work of the TfL funded Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Safer Transport Teams (STTs), as well as CCTV on all buses and other community safety initiatives, crime on the bus network continues to fall. There are now just 9 crimes per million passenger journeys on the bus network compared to 22 crimes per million passenger journeys in 2005/6.

Set out below is the STT target strength from May 2008 to September 2012.

Date STT Officers May-08 441 Jun-08 441 Jul-08 441 Aug-08 441 Sep-08 441 Oct-08 441 Nov-08 441 Dec-08 441 Jan-09 441 Feb-09 441 Mar-09 441 Apr-09 876 May-09 876 Jun-09 876 Jul-09 876 Aug-09 876 Sep-09 876 Oct-09 876 Nov-09 876 Dec-09 876 Jan-10 876 Feb-10 876 Mar-10 876 Apr-10 1227 May-10 1227 Jun-10 1227 Jul-10 1227 Aug-10 1227 Sep-10 1227 Oct-10 1227 Nov-10 1227 Dec-10 1227 Jan-11 1227 Feb-11 1227 Mar-11 1138 Apr-11 1138 May-11 1138 Jun-11 1138 Jul-11 1138 Aug-11 1138 Sep-11 1138 Oct-11 1138 Nov-11 1138 Dec-11 1138 Jan-12 1138 Feb-12 1138 Mar-12 1138 Apr-12 1143 May-12 1143 Jun-12 1143 Jul-12 1143 Aug-12 1143 Sep-12 1143
