Thank you to all who contributed to a record near-600 responses to the November 2019 surveys, and who defied a cold, wet November evening to attend the Forum meeting at The Misbourne school.

The meeting decided on the following four priorities: Residential Burglary, Drug Dealing, Speeding and Violence against a Person.

Andy Garnett Chair of Chiltern Community ForumChiltern 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?

Inspector Richard Vine, Thames Valley PoliceThe 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

Councillor Liz WalshWorking together is the most effective way to combat crime, disorder and the fear of crime. Involving different agencies and individuals helps give a true picture of what’s happening in the area so that we can all make Chiltern a better place to live and work.

Priority Setting Meetings

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.

At the most recent meeting, the following priorities were set: Burglary; Drug Dealing and Misuse; Speeding.
Meeting details – 27th November 2019

The Forum will visit The Chalfonts for its next quarterly meeting, in February 2020. Venue and date/time tba.
