A POLICE operation is looking to provide a high level of service across the Jubilee weekend.

A large number of jubilee celebrations will be taking place across the UK during the extended bank holiday weekend. Operation Regal is Thames Valley Police’s response to this and aims to ensure a high level of policing service to the public as ever.

Neighbourhood policing teams will be patrolling and visiting community events and will provide a visible presence across the Thames Valley. We will aim to deter any anti-social behaviour or crime related disorder and ensure people can enjoy the celebrations in peace.

Chief Supt Alan Baldwin said: “It is important that people are able to enjoy the Diamond Jubilee celebrations over the weekend, particularly as it plays such an important part of British culture.

“Many people will be going out for street parties and leaving their properties empty and home security will be the last thing on their minds. I would like to encourage people to make sure their properties are secure at all times, particularly if you are going to be coming and going throughout the day and not always in full view of your home.

“Our neighbourhood teams will be patrolling and are there to offer any advice relating to personal or home safety.”
