The Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley has published his plans for his time in office.

Anthony Stansfeld released his Police and Crime Plan today and his priorities were to improve crime detection rates, rehabilitate prolific and persistent offenders, reduce household burglary and reduce drug and alcohol fuelled crime and anti-social behaviour, particularly at night-time in town centres.

He is also aiming to reduce rural crime and prevent the abuse of vulnerable people with his plans set to be put in motion from April onwards.

Mr Stansfeld has worked closely wit chief constable Sara Thornton and community safety partners across the region in putting the plan together so that it reflects his election promises and sets out how they will work together to reduce crime.

He said: “This plan sets out my objectives for policing and crime in Thames Valley and brings together both the police and other partners responsible for crime reduction.

“I am committed to working closely with the Chief Constable and other partners to ensure that the Thames Valley remains a safe place to live and work and that we continue to build on the already impressive reductions in crime and improved detection rates”

Sara Thornton, chief constable said: “This plan clearly sets out our objectives for the next year and all Thames Valley Police officers and staff will be working hard to protect the public and reduce crime in line with this plan.”
