  1. Running its own services again gives Thames Valley chance to 'standardise processes'. In the pink: Change of emphasis with, from the left, Sergeant Dave Williams, Superintendent Katy Barrow-Grint, former Chief Inspector Dave Cherrington, Inspector Dave Entwistle Date - 27th November 2018 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle A force’s risk assessment of custodial services has prompted it to make a “big decision” and bring them back in-house next year. Thames Valley Police will reclaim the operation of its eight custody suites from service delivery company Noonan when the current contract ends on March 31. The chief constable’s management team is confident a close-working relationship with the current provider over the coming months will ensure a “smooth transition” of services. Detention officers will return to being force employees in line with The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. TUPE Regulations ensure that an employee’s rights and obligations under their current contract of employment are transferred to the receiving company. Force head of criminal justice Superintendent Katy Barrow-Grint said: “Bringing our custodial services in-house is a big decision for the force and it will require a lot of work to deliver this by the end of March 2019. “I believe that the change will provide us with the opportunity to standardise our processes and procedures across our custody suites and enable us to respond to national and local changes.” Police and crime commissioner Anthony Stansfeld added: “This is an important decision that will ensure value for money for local taxpayers as well enabling Thames Valley Police to operate the most effective custody service, keeping the public and detainees safe.” In August, the force announced it had decided to trial a new colour scheme at one of its custody suites to make it a “less threatening environment” for children being held in detention. Transforming the walls of an Abingdon cell, from white to pink, was based on an original idea from the force’s former lead for custody, Chief Inspector Dave Cherrington and which followed recommendations from Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services. The newly-painted cell custody suite was named ‘Cherrington’s Cell’ in honour of the officer who gave 30 years’ service to Thames Valley. View On Police Oracle

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
