Have your say on the future of our front counters.

We are currently seeking your views on the future of our front counter provision across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

We’ve launched a public consultation to hear what you think about our plans to review front counter services. This is part of our commitment to adapt to the different ways in which people contact the police, to meet the changing needs of the diverse communities we serve and to make necessary savings.

The consultation seeks views on a proposed reduction in the number of front counters from 16 to 11, which would save approximately £1.4m.

It is very important we hear the views of as many of our residents, businesses and partners across the diverse communities we serve to help us make a well informed decision.

The proposal does not affect police officer numbers nor the number of police bases we have so the public will not experience any difference to officer visibility in our communities.

Under the plans, the force will retain its front counters at Milton Keynes, Oxford, Reading, Slough, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Abingdon, Banbury, Newbury, Loddon Valley and Maidenhead. The hours of their opening are also being reviewed.

Front counters at Amersham, Bicester, Bracknell, HQ South in Kidlington, and Witney will close if the proposal is approved.

TVP has 79 police bases forcewide, which are not affected, nor being consulted upon.

The consultation is hosted on the digital platform Snap and will run until 31 January.
