Sharing data

Thames Valley Police is the largest non-metropolitan police force in England and Wales, encompassing the counties of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner supports the Bucks Data Exchange in its aim to better share data so that local needs, demands and provisions can be met.


The PCC Office has access to a range of recorded crime data that can assist partner organisations. From aggrieved people’s demographics to offences and vehicle information. High-level crime data such as this can help identify areas of concern for strategic needs assessments and programmes. 


Combining the data with various visualisation software, the Office also has the ability to produce crime hotspot maps. As a partner of the Bucks Data Exchange, the Office aims to contribute to the deeper understanding of the Bucks area, and collaborate with relevant partners to help reduce crime across Buckinghamshire.
