Thames Valley Police is looking to review the structure of local policing. The last review took place in 2010. The force says that it is now working in a more complex environment and following extensive research and analysis two proposals for how it delivers local policing are being considered.

The purpose-built centre in Bicester will become the main forensics hub for the force, containing laboratories, new digital technologies and dedicated training facilities.
