Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - Neighbourhood Policing

Thames Valley Police is committed to delivering a service to the public and will continue to do so whilst the UK deals with the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic. We will continue to respond to incidents and investigate crime as usual, however please understand that some incidents do not always require immediate or urgent police attendance. We would like to advise our friends and associates of the Chiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum to please use the valuable information and links available on the website when considering if a police response is required.

Although the Covid regulations regarding social distances have eased over time, the government has advised that we are in a second wave. The Neighbourhood Teams continue to carry out their neighbourhood responsibilities as per usual however we are still regularly required to support our emergency response colleagues with specific demands on the Police service.

'Have Your Say': - Have your say public events will begin to start up again, initially in Chesham in the Market Square on the first Saturday of every month. Officers will be wearing PPE when holding these events. We would encourage the public to respect social distancing and the ‘rule of six’ if they wish to speak about particular issues or would like to receive crime prevention material and advice.

Sometimes our direct email inboxes are used as a means of contacting the Neighbourhood Teams, the reply may still take slightly longer than usual due to the volume of emails received.

We thank you all for your support.

Andy Garnett Chair of Chiltern Community ForumChiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum supports the process for identifying and setting areas of focus for the Chiltern & South Bucks Local Policing Area (LPA) Neighbourhood Police teams. It provides a platform for meaningful engagement between local residents and Neighbourhood Police teams.  And it encourages community involvement and individual responsibility: how can we as citizens help make our community a better place to be?

Inspector Richard Vine, Thames Valley PoliceThe Policing Issues Forum is vital to the neighbourhood policing team, not only to help identify which issues the community feels are impacting upon them most, but to also prioritise them and help identify where the community can play their part and work with us, our statutory and voluntary partners, to help to address those concerns

Setting Neighbourhood Policing Focus Areas

Chiltern & South Bucks LPA covers seven Buckinghamshire Council Community Boards.  The ‘Policing Issues Panel’, comprising the Chairs of the these Boards or their nominees, sets Neighbourhood Policing areas of focus.  Beforehand, residents are invited to complete an online survey to express their views and preferences.  Information from the survey informs decisions on f0cus areas.  Decisions are announced on this website and elsewhere.

Chiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum organises meetings on a quarterly schedule, open to all residents, with senior representation from Thames Valley Police and where appropriate, guest speakers and subject matter experts.   Decisions on areas of focus are discussed, and progress reports on previous focus areas are presented by Thames Valley Police.

Chiltern Community Forum held its most recent Chiltern Local Police Area (LPA) priority setting meeting via Zoom on Wednesday 23rd September. Thank you to all who completed the survey. Priorities decided at the meeting were Residential Burglary, Speeding and Anti-Social Behaviour. Report on survey and meeting available at www.chilterncommunityforum.org/meetings/forum-23rd-september-2020/
