Superintendent Robin Rickard, Local Police Area Commander for West Berkshire said: "This is great news for the communities of West Berkshire. However, we are not complacent and will continue to work hard to meet the challenge of maintaining a reduction in crime. I would
like to thank Police officers and staff for their commitment to keeping West Berkshire safe, and in particular, I would like to thank local people for their continued support."
