Dear Taylor Willis,
Thank you for your email to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), however it may assist you to know that the PCC is an independent body separate from Thames Valley Police (TVP) and is therefore not the head of the Force. All operational policing matters and decisions, including those around the investigation and prosecution of criminal offences and the handling of complaints made against TVP, are the responsibility of the Chief Constable of TVP who, in law, is operationally independent of the PCC. As such we do not hold operational informational like that which you have requested.
You may wish to submit your request directly to TVP. This can be done by emailing [email address] or via the TVP website: https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/rqo/r...
I am sorry that we are unable to assist further but trust that this clarifies matters.
