Police have dismissed speculation they are moving patrols out of the town centre on Friday and Saturday nights.
Pubwatch members in the town say they were advised in a meeting last month there would be a reduced police coverage in the town, with forces being redirected elsewhere.
But deputy local policing area commander for Windsor and Maidenhead, Chief Inspector Lee Townsend, said this was not the case.
"It is untrue we have removed police from Maidenhead town centre," he said.
"There may not be the same level of resources but that is because we are meeting the demand in other areas."
"We provide specific police operations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings to cater for night economy," he added.
"If that means our police operations have to be flexible to meet people's needs, that is what we will do."
