Communities asked for views on policing and crime

Home > Latest News > Thames Valley communities asked for their views on policing and crime

On the 10th Anniversary since Police & Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were democratically elected, an anonymous online survey has been launched giving Thames Valley residents the opportunity to share their views and experiences of policing and crime.

The survey asks for views about how safe residents feel in their local area, their experience of both crime and the police as well as questions on the future funding of policing.

Matthew Barber, Police and Crime Commissioner said “Part of my role is to ensure there is a clear focus on the priorities that matter most to the public. I want to gain a real understanding of how crime is affecting communities, whether it is direct experiences of crime or issues that may be causing you concern in your local area. I also want to hear your feedback, whether good or bad, on policing; what the police are doing well and areas you think could be improved.

“To help me build up a picture across the Thames Valley, the survey will be available on my website all year round. It will provide an ongoing mechanism for people to share their views and keep me informed. Whether or not you have directly experienced a crime, I would encourage you to use the survey to share your feedback and tell me what is important to you. Your views will help shape the future of policing in the Thames Valley.”

Results from the survey will be shared regularly on the PCC website, social media and other communication channels. 

To complete the survey, please visit our dedicated webpage.

If you are not able to complete the survey online or need support in doing so, please call the Office of the PCC on 01865 541957 or email opcc.comms@thamesvalley.police.uk. We can send you a paper copy for completion.

The survey will remain open for responses throughout the year. Responses will remain anonymous and confidential.
