Police Arrest Only 16 People Over Regatta

With 300,000 estimated visitors to Henley Royal Regatta last week across six days, Thames Valley Police worked with them, local licensed premises and the Environment Agency to deliver a policing and security operation with only 16 arrests made, slightly up on last year (13).

Superintendent Colin Hudson, Tactical Commander for the policing operation, said: “We have had another busy week policing Henley Royal Regatta. The work of our officers, partners and event organisers ensured a safe and enjoyable event for those who attended.

“Our Neighbourhood Policing Team engaged with visitors in the Town Centre and along the riverbank. Our Specialist Teams including Roads Policing, Drone, Mounted and Marine Units all helped to ensure the Regatta ran smoothly.

“Over the six days of the event, 16 arrests were made. These arrests represent a very small minority of those who attended the Regatta. I would like to thank the community and our partners for their co-operation during the event.”
