Message of thanks following the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

Dear all,

Yesterday was an historic day for our nation and our county as we reflected on the life of Queen Elizabeth II. 

I wanted to simply say thank you for your support now that our policing operation has finished. It has been an operation on a scale like no other and has required close working relationships with the Metropolitan Police and Thames Valley Police, as well as our partners across the county.

Our officers and staff have worked tirelessly to ensure our small part in the processional route from London to Windsor went smoothly yesterday, with plans rehearsed over many years. I would like to thank our communities for impeccably supporting our officers on the ground and paying their respects along the route.

As a county we will have much more to reflect on in the days ahead now that the moment has passed.


Gavin Stephens QPM

Chief Constable
