On Monday 6 March 2017 Victoria Prentis MP met Superintendent Kath Lowe at her constituency office in Upper Heyford. Superintendent Lowe is the Local Police Area Commander for Cherwell and West Oxfordshire, part of which covers Banbury, Bicester and rural north Oxfordshire.

During their discussion, Victoria heard about recent policing successes and learnt about the challenges faced by the local force. Victoria also had the opportunity to raise specific cases with Superintendent Lowe on behalf of her constituents. Superintendent Lowe updated Victoria on the progress of the ongoing restructuring programme being carried out by Thames Valley Police, which will improve the way police services are delivered across the Thames Valley.

Following their meeting, Victoria said, “I always welcome the chance to speak to Kath Lowe and other local police commanders. The relationship between an MP and his or her police force is very important, and we regularly share information about specific cases and local issues. As an MP I am presented on a weekly basis with difficult cases which require police involvement, and I am very grateful for the hard work the police do on behalf of our communities.
