Rail Pastors


Rail Pastors is a prototype initiative within the Street Pastors family that came about at the request of the British Transport Police who offered their support if a patrol “like Street Pastors” could be established on a stretch of the network where there had been a high number of suicide attempts and fatalities.

The first team, in Barnet, north London, has recently expanded its area of operation and now also carries out patrols on the Great Northern Route (GN) – the line that runs from Potters Bar to Alexandra Palace.

The rail pastors are a reassuring presence to passengers and are ready to help any needy or vulnerable passengers on the station platforms.
