“There is nothing more important in policing than ensuring public confidence. As we work to ensure that the operational efforts of Thames Valley Police drive down crime, bring criminals to justice and keep the public safe, it is vital that the police maintain the consent of every community. The force’s Race Action Plan is designed to demonstrate the robustness and openness of Thames Valley Police in treating everyone fairly and with respect and ensuring that each community in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire gets the protection it deserves from the police.“
Matthew Barber, Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley
