New South Buckinghamshire local policing area

Monday, June 20th, 2022

Thames Valley Police has created a new South Buckinghamshire local policing area (LPA). This has been formed by amalgamating our former Chiltern & South Bucks policing area with Wycombe policing area.

From the point of view of local policing area across the former Chiltern & South Bucks area, little will change. We shall, however, need to adjust to new social media accounts.

The TVP Chiltern&S.Bucks account (@TVP_ChiltSBucks) will be replaced, and new Twitter updates will appear on @tvp_southbucks

TVP Chiltern and South Bucks Facebook page, formerly @TVPChilternandSouthBucks, has been replaced by @TVPSouthBuckinghamshire. All content previously posted on the former account can now be found on this page.

On a broader perspective, TVP assures that frontline officers and staff and police buildings will remain as they were for the two police areas. The amalgamation will reduce the number of senior staff working within these areas and will streamline systems.

Superintendent Emma Burroughs, Commander for South Buckinghamshire, said: “Since Buckinghamshire Council’s move to become a unitary authority, it became clear that a structure that is more aligned to theirs will help us to maximise the important community safety partnership with them.

“However, this also provides us with a great opportunity for the two former LPAs to become a single, more streamlined and more effective organisation. The two LPAs have always worked very closely together, but this move will consolidate that position and allow us to more effectively serve our communities.

“Plans for this change have been underway for a number of months and our local communities will not see a change in officers patrolling their local areas or responding to incidents.

“This new move also improves our work with partner agencies and provides greater flexibility, putting us in a good position to meet future challenges as the environment in which we police continues to change.”
