Have your say on TVP Front Counter Closures

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

Thanks Valley Police is currently seeking residents’ views on the future of front counter provision at Police stations across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

The consultation seeks views on a proposed reduction in the number of front counters from 16 to 11, making savings of approximately £1.4m.

The effect on the Chiltern & South Bucks Local Policing Area will be to close the front counter at Amersham, leaving none within Chiltern and South Bucks Local Policing Area. Slough, which will be open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, and High Wycombe, open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm, will be the closest.

TVP stresses that the proposal does not affect police officer numbers nor the number of police bases across the force area, and that the public will not experience any difference to officer visibility in our communities. Also that it is part of its commitment to adapt to the different ways in which people contact the police, to meet the changing needs of diverse communities and to make necessary savings.

What do YOU think? The consultation closes on Sunday 31st January.
