Introducing… new LPA Commander Supt Amy Clements

Monday, January 21st, 2019

Today is the first day in the job for the new Commander for the Chiltern & South Buckinghamshire local policing area (LPA). These are the policing areas covered by Chiltern Community Forum and South Bucks Community Forum.

Superintendent Amy Clements takes over from Superintendent Neil Kentish who has returned to the Milton Keynes area as Deputy Commander.


From Thames Valley Press Release:

Supt Clements joined Thames Valley Police in 2017 as part of the Direct Entry programme and has worked as a police officer in stations across Buckinghamshire. Supt Clements previously worked as a senior lawyer in the Government Legal Service, where she specialised in Public Law litigation and criminal prosecutions. This included a fraud prosecution in 2012 which led to fishing companies in Spain and the UK being fined £1.6m.

She has also worked with the Legal Services Commission developing policy and strategy for civil legal aid.

Supt Clements will work together with Deputy Commander Chief Inspector Tim Hurley to lead the policing team for the area. In collaboration with their local officers and the communities themselves, they will ensure issues impacting local residents and businesses are identified and opportunities to prevent and disrupt crime and disorder and taken to ensure Chiltern and South Buckinghamshire remains a desirable area to live and work.

On her new role, Supt Clements said: “I am excited to be taking up the role of Commander for the Chiltern and South Buckinghamshire area and know that I have a great team of colleagues to work alongside in continuing to keep the community safe.

“There will be challenges ahead but I look forward to working closely with our partners and members of the community, finding ways in which we can deliver effective policing, making the very best use of our resources.”
