Police and Crime Commissioner publishes Annual Report
Anthony Stansfeld, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for the Thames Valley has published his 2016/17 Annual Report.
This is the PCC’s fifth Annual Report. It details how the PCC has met his statutory responsibilities and is the final report to detail progress against his 2013 – 2017 Police and Crime Plan.
The report includes progress made over the last 12 months against his six strategic objectives, the performance of Thames Valley Police for 2016/17 including crime rates and HMIC Inspections, and details how funding has been allocated and spent. This includes the Ministry of Justice funded services commissioned to support victims and witnesses of crime and the Community Safety Fund grant given to county and unitary authorities to deliver crime reduction, prevention and support services.
Anthony Stansfeld Police and Crime Commissioner said “There have been political changes and financial challenges over the last 12 months which have formed the backdrop of my annual report, however despite these challenges, Thames Valley Police continues to transform and deliver quality policing to our communities.
“We have seen increases in crime across some crime types over the last year, some of which is down to recording practices and increased confidence in reporting and some of which is a real increase. The increase in Thames Valley is less than the national increase. Crime in the Thames Valley remains low compared to recorded crime five or ten years ago and the recent HMIC report rating Thames Valley Police ‘good’ in all areas is an endorsement of its’ performance.
“I continue to work with the police and other partners to address my strategic priorities for the communities of the Thames Valley and looking forward I am now beginning to implement my new Police and Crime Plan 2017 – 2021. The new Plan encompasses broad strategic priorities which are flexible enough to tackle specific local issues and concerns and I look forward to working with a broad range of partners to deliver it”.
