We are committed to working together to make our communities safer.



The Force Commitment is the commitment to the people of Thames Valley regarding how Thames Valley Police works together with its communities over the next five years in certain key areas:

  • Keeping people safe and bringing offenders to justice
  • Building stronger, more resilient communities
  • Adopting modern policing techniques
  • Being a skilled and trusted workforce.

Message for Chief Constable Francis Habgood

"Over the last few years we have achieved many successes; crime levels remain low, with public confidence and victim satisfaction remaining high. We have also received formal recognition from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, which we are extremely proud of.

However, the policing landscape continues to change with the emergence of new and complex crimes such as cyber crime and modern slavery, the growth of others, including sexual offences, and the ongoing financial uncertainty facing the police service.

With this change comes challenge and opportunity. We will build on our previous success and deliver an effective and efficient core service which meets the needs of you, the public we serve. To do this we need to continue to transform and innovate so that we can meet policing needs now and in the future.

As your Chief Constable I make a commitment to you that my officers, staff and volunteers will continue to work tirelessly, along with our partners and you the public, to make the Thames Valley an even safer place to live and work.

In this section you can read all about our commitment and keep updated with the latest developments in the Force."
