Chief Inspector Lee Townsend, deputy local police area commander, speaking at a media briefing yesterday, said they are managing a cohort of criminals who get released and reoffend.
He said: "People on the cohort are given opportunities to become good community citizens, but there is a line and our job is to reduce crime.
"If they do not want to take them we will target individuals and lock them up."
Chf Insp Townsend said in the past they have had spikes in crimes such as burglary when prolific offenders get released.
He said if people have a 'significant' history of offending the force will have to look at these individuals when there are crimes.
Chf Insp Townsend added: "They have a choice and if they want to help themselves, their families and the community they will comply and engage with help.
"If they do not then they will be targeted."
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
