Information from our Annual Federation Conference.

British Transport
Police Federation
Conference 2020

The annual British Transport Police Federation Conference and Awards of Excellence were due to be held in Cardiff on 17 and 18 March. Sadly, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic meant the events were postponed.

Speaking at the time, BTP Federation Chair Nigel Goodband said: "As an organisation concerned with the welfare of officers, the wellbeing of those we represent and work alongside is at the heart of the decisions we make.

"As an emergency service, we also have to consider the resilience of the Force and the impact of removing officers from the frontline to attend our conference.

"We are disappointed to postpone. While it may have been desirable to go ahead, it's not essential to do so at this time."


A mini-conference was held in September to enable decisions to be made on core Federation business. Delegates met via an online conferencing facility to debate a series of motions and rule changes. The next BTP Federation Conference and Awards is due to take place in September 2021. This event also marks the organisation's 100th anniversary.
