On 11th November 2021 the Forum’s Zoom meeting was, unfortunately, interrupted by an unknown person who infiltrated the meeting using a link that had been shared on Twitter. This person disrupted the meeting and subjected the attendees to offensive material. An investigation was conducted by Thames Valley Police, however due to the link being shared via social media it was impossible to identify the culprit. We would like to remind members of the Forum that secure links should not be shared on any social media platforms.

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 Policing Issues Forum met online on Monday 29th November.

The meeting was well attended by residents. In addition to the Neighbourhood Policing updates, they heard from Local Policing Area Commander Supt Emma Burroughs, and received updates on new Community Speedwatch arrangements, Fly Tipping and the new Rural Crime task force.

Whilst some Community Board Chairs attended, unfortunately for a number of reasons not all Board chairs could be present on the day. However following the meeting focus areas for Neighbourhood police over the next 4 months were agreed as follows:

  • Serious acquisitive crime
  • Speeding
  • ASB

Minutes of the meeting will be posted when available.

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 three times a year, 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 Monday 29th November 2021. Details available here.
