Who we are

Chiltern Community Forum (“CCF”, “the Forum”, “we”, “us”) is an independent community body working in conjunction with Chiltern District Council and Thames Valley Police.

CCF’s principal stated objective is to set policing priorities for the Chiltern area. In addition, the Forum seeks to promote community engagement, and encourage involvement by individuals, businesses and other stakeholders within the area. The overall goal is to make the Chiltern community more resilient, and for Chiltern to be a better, safer place to live and work.
