Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I am writing in response to questions that have been raised in the Eynsham community regarding planned changes within Thames Valley Police in our approach to neighbourhood policing.
Over the last year Thames Valley Police have reviewed the way we respond to and investigate incidents and crime in our communities.  We wanted to make sure that our structures and processes are as effective as possible to support how we manage demand and meet the needs of the public.
We have mapped out where demands are placed on our service to ensure that we are able to provide the right resources to the areas of greatest need, at times of greatest need and protect the most vulnerable in our communities. As a result of this review, during the summer we will be making changes to the way we are structured across our local policing areas. This means that in some areas and at certain times we will have more or fewer police officers available depending on demand and our assessment of threat, risk and harm.
The police base in Eynsham was considered as part of the review and I am pleased to confirm that we will be retaining our Police Community Support Officers in the village. For some months now Police Officers have not been permanently based in Eynsham without any noticeable impact on the community.
As part of the new structure we are creating new ‘neighbourhood problem solving’ teams to enhance our capability to deal with neighbourhood problems. This will mean a whole team of officers being available to respond to calls for service. These officers are in addition to our emergency response teams who will continue to respond across West Oxon as they do now.
I would like to reassure you that our aim is to create a more effective and efficient police service which will ensure that we can provide the best service to you when you need us.
I am attending the next parish council meeting in March where I will be able to share our plans further.

Police Commander for Cherwell and West Oxon
