Thames Valley Police Service
More than 800 police officers and support staff are to be axed as government cuts force Thames Valley Police to rein in its spending.
Plans are being drawn up to shed 297 police officers and 556 support roles across Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire over the next four years, saving about £47m.
The force must cut its budget by 14 per cent following the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review last month.
Home Office figures show Thames Valley currently ranks 34th out of 43 forces nationwide for the number of officers per head of population.
