Policing at the Regatta

TVPlogoSuperintendent Andy Boyd would like to inform the public of  what our local neighbourhood policing team are doing to help keep the Henley Regatta a safe and enjoyable event for everyone.


“The neighbourhood policing team has been working hard in the lead up to the regatta and officers will be carrying out patrols to make sure people who are visiting Henley during the weekend are doing so in a friendly manner and not causing a nuisance of themselves.


We will be taking a firm approach to prevent and deter any incidents of trouble and hope to minimise any disruption to local residents which might be caused by the event.


There will also be a Designated Public Place Order in place for the Regatta which means that the Police will have the power to ask someone to stop drinking alcohol if they are behaving, or are likely to behave, in an anti-social way. Click here to obtain a copy of the designated public place order flyer.


We will be continuing our use of Twitter @tvpsouthandvale this year, to provide you with regular updates about how the Regatta is going, our policing operation and any information we think you might find informative, including details of train times and any traffic congestion.


If you would like to speak to any of the neighbourhood policing team, contact the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101. In an emergency dial 999.


I do hope you enjoy the Regatta.”


Superintendent Andy Boyd
