Thames Valley Police crime commissioner outlines new crime plan

A new crime plan was launched by the Thames Valley's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Anthony Stansfeld on Monday.

The new document sets out the priorities for policing from April until March 2021 across the Thames Valley.

The new plan addresses increased reporting of domestic and sexual abuse as well as hidden or newly emerging crimes such as female genital mutilation, hate crime, honour based violence and cyber crime.

The plan was informed by the views of the nearly 5,000 Thames Valley residents including more than 1,000 young people.

Mr Stansfeld said the survey found adults were ‘largely satisfied’ with the police but the perception of the force by young people was ‘less favourable’ and something he would like to address.

He added: “As the recent tragedy in London has unfortunately highlighted terrorism remains a very real threat and the work in preventing violent extremism will continue.

“Serious organised crime must also be tackled and very vulnerable people, who are exploited as a consequence, protected.”

    Back of fag packet calculation but get rid of the pcc and his team would give us 54 extra police officers on the beat. What added value does the PCC give us?

    Who was surveyed? No one I know. As for Police & Crime Commissioners what a waste of money they are. They achieve nothing that anyone can identify. Do they make any difference? not a jot, just another load of retired or redundant politicians picking up large salaries. TVP will doubtless maintain its distinction as the worst performing force in the country.

    Pity the PCC or any of his team couldn't be bothered to turn up to the South Bucks and Chiltern meeting earlier in the month. Clearly the residents there are not important.
