Abuse of position assessment - Thames Valley Police

Summary

In our 2016 legitimacy inspections, a national cause of concern was identified in forces’ ability to seek intelligence on potential abuse of position for sexual gain.

HMICFRS recommended that all forces should have started to implement a plan to achieve the capability and capacity required to seek intelligence on potential abuse of position for sexual gain.

In 2017, we reviewed all plans and associated documentation provided by forces in response to this recommendation. Each force was sent a letter setting out our assessment of its individual plans.

This letter was sent to Thames Valley Police’s chief constable, setting out our assessment of their force’s plan.
