Chief Constable, British Transport Police
Lucy D'Orsi joined British Transport Police as Chief Constable in March 2021, from her previous position as Deputy Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations at the Metropolitan Police Service. She is also the National Police lead for Taser and Counter Drone UK capabilities. Lucy has extensive experience of working in challenging policing environments both in London and nationally, including Royalty and Specialist Protection, Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection, Aviation Policing and Protective Security, as well as Counter Terrorism Policing’s Senior National Coordinator for Protective Security and Preparedness. She is a highly experienced Public Order Commander, having led the policing operations for the Chinese State Visit in 2015 and, more recently, the policing operations for London’s New Year’s Eve, the State Visit of the then President Trump and the NATO Summit (2019).
In her role as Chief Constable, Lucy provides leadership to a large, dispersed workforce of over 5,000 police officers and staff across England, Scotland and Wales, as well as leading partnerships with the Department for Transport, the devolved administrations and the rail industry across Great Britain. Overall, she takes responsibility for developing BTP’s policing strategy and leads our teams in delivering our service economically and efficiently, whilst continuing to drive our innovative and bold approach on the national policing stage.
