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, we hope that policing within the neighbourhood teams will go back to "business as usual" very soon. Although the government have set a clear plan until the end of June, with variations of the Coronavirus, we have to monitor the rules and guidance issued until we are advised further.
Making sure we are socially distancing and have full PPE, 'Have Your Say' events are taking place again. We want to see you all, talk about local issues and provide the crime prevention material in person that we have been unable to do for just over a year now.
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 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.
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 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.
Visit our Diary Dates page for upcoming opportunities to discuss or hear about local policing. These include ‘Have Your Say’ sessions with neighbourhood policing teams, Local Area Forum meetings, and of course our own Chiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum dates.
