Police Sign

Thames Valley Police have announced that, as at August 2014, they have identified 124 organised crime groups. Of these, 68 are currently active. The remainder have either been disrupted or the intelligence has dried up which is why the police are seeking help from the public.

The activities of organised crime groups can cover many different types of crime, including drug supply, robbery and burglary, human trafficking and exploitation, child sex exploitation, firearms crime, vehicle theft, gang related crime, fraud and cyber crime.

What to look out for:

  • People living beyond their means
  • Unusual patterns or increased activity at an address
  • Paying for expensive items with cash

If you have any information about organised crime please report it via 101.

If you don't want to speak directly to the police, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

Together we can tackle organised crime!

Keeping Abreast of Police Communications

A new mobile friendly version of the Thames Valley Police website is now available which will enhance the site and services available for smartphone users.

The website contains a wealth of useful information and advice, including our interactive virtual neighbourhood, details of your local neighbourhood team and what they've been up to, and online crime and incident reporting, which will now be even easier to access when you're out and about.

There is no need to download a special app. If you access the website from a smartphone the new mobile version loads automatically. You can find the site here.

Over 50 per cent of visitors to the Force website now access it from mobile devices.

Karen Papworth, Thames Valley Police Corporate Communications Support Services manager, whose team developed the new version for mobiles said: "Since we launched, mobile phone access has increased by 74 per cent and the number of new users by 110 per cent.

"We will continue to develop the website to engage with our communities and would like feedback from the public on future developments."
