A new report has commended Thames Valley Police for having one of the highest levels of accuracy for recording crimes in the country.

HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) checked the accuracy of crime records as part of a nationwide review to ensure 'the public are getting accurate information on crime from the police'.  

The report, published on yesterday found that only one out of 120 records had been closed without the crime being properly recorded compared to as many as one in four crimes at other forces in the country.

Thames Valley Police typically receive 3,325 calls for assistance a day.
