A police authority is a governmental body in the United Kingdom that defines strategic plans for a police force and provides accountability[1] so that the police function "efficiently and effectively,"[2] and the British Transport Police patrol the railways in England, Wales, and Scotland.[3]

The Chair, appointed by the Secretary of State for Transport, was Sir Alistair Graham from its founding in 2004 until the end of 2011, and since then has been Millie Banerjee.[4]
