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 Community 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.

Chiltern Community Forum is a framework to set crime priorities in conjunction and partnership with Thames Valley Police. It encourages community involvement and individual responsibility: how can we as citizens help make our community a better place to be?
Andy Garnett, Chair, Chiltern Community Forum
The Community 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
Quarterly policing priorities are set at a public meeting. In advance of the meeting, residents are invited to make their views and priorities known through a very short survey. Results from the survey are aggregated and presented at the meeting.
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/
