In Thames Valley Police there is a failure of officers and staff to make correct crime-recording decisions at the first opportunity. This is due to deficiencies in the force’s crime-recording processes, insufficient understanding of crime-recording requirements and inadequate supervision to correct the decisions of officers and staff and improve standards from the outset. This means that the force is letting down many victims of crime.The force is failing to ensure it adequately records all reports of rape, other sexual and violence offences, including domestic abuse crimes and crimes reported directly to its public protection departments.


Within three months, the force should:

-develop and implement procedures for the effective supervision of crime-recording decisions throughout the whole force.

-put in place arrangements to ensure that where more than one crime is disclosed within an incident record, or is identified as part of other recorded crime investigations, these are recorded at the earliest opportunity.
