Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - Neighbourhood Policing

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.

Some officers have been advised to self-isolate after the guidance was given by the government and health services. The Neighbourhood Teams will not only continue with our neighbourhood responsibilities but will be required to support our emergency response colleagues with specific demands on the Police service.

'Have Your Say': Due to the current situation with Covid 19 these meetings have been put on hold.

We would also like to add that if our direct email inboxes are used as a means of contacting the Neighbourhood Teams, the reply may take slightly longer than usual.

We thank you all for your support.

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
