Birthday Honour for TfL’s Siwan Hayward for services to transport and policing


Transport for London’s (TfL) director of compliance, policing and on-street services has been honoured with an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Responsible for leading TfL’s transport policing, enforcement, community safety and security agenda, Siwan has achieved a 40 per cent reduction in the crime rate on London’s public transport network over the past ten years by engaging with TfL’s policing partners and more than 700 members of staff.

Since she joined TfL in 2007, Siwan has led on a number of successful projects that have made the capital safer. She brought together London’s policing agencies to develop and launch ‘Project Guardian’, which was set up to increase awareness of the range of different behaviours that constitute unwanted sexual behaviour, encouraging people to report, safe in the knowledge it is taken seriously and investigated.

Outside of TfL, Siwan, who came to London from Aberystwyth, is chair of ADFAM, the national charity that supports and advocates for families affected by substance misuse.

London’s Transport Commissioner, Mike Brown MVO, said: “It is fantastic to see Siwan being recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, a recognition that is truly deserved. Siwan plays a vital role in making London’s transport network safe, creating an environment where our customers can travel without the fear of crime. She is an inspiring role model for everyone within TfL, in the transport industry and beyond.”
