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) pandemic. As the government restrictions ease, the neighbourhood teams are gradually returning to "business as usual". Although the government has stated that the remaining legal restrictions will be removed as of Monday 19th July, we will continue to be guided by our Occupational Health Professionals.

We will continue to socially distance and have access to full PPE. The 'Have Your Say' events are taking place again, and we want to see you all to talk about local issues and provide the crime prevention material in person that we have been unable to do for the last year. Please see the forum website for the upcoming HYS dates and locations.

We 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 continue 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.

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.

Inspector Richard Vine, Chiltern and South Bucks Neighbourhood Team

We shall contact you mainly about surveys and meetings and promise not to pass on your details to third parties.

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 focus 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.

The Forum’s most recent meeting was held on Tuesday 18th May 2021. Details available at www.csb-forum.org/meetings/chiltern-s-bucks-policing-issues-forum-18th-may-2021/
