Police matters

I held a meeting recently with the Thames Valley Police Commissioner. We agreed that fraud and cybercrime are worrying areas of criminal activity that would repay more enforcement action. We also agreed that the Thames Valley still gets a relatively low settlement per capita compared to other police forces around the country, which we will continue to highlight to Ministers with a view to improving the money settlements in future years. The PCC reminded me of consultative work underway over more joint working between the fire service and police, and between specialist police forces and the main regional forces in England. If constituents have views on any of these issues I would be interested to hear.
