Alcohol licensing

The Thames Valley Police Licensing Team deals with matters relating to the Licensing Act 2003, which regulates the sale and supply of alcohol, regulated entertainment and provision of late night refreshment.  Information about firearms licensing is available in the  Firearms Licensing section

The Licensing Team manage applications for licenses, monitor compliance, co-ordinate enforcement activity and present cases for licence reviews on behalf of the police.

At Thames Valley Police, our approach to licensing matters is first and foremost a supportive one. We aim to collaborate and engage with the licensed premises and communities within our area to effectively promote the four licensing objectives:

  • Prevention of crime and disorder;
  • Protection of children from harm;
  • Ensuring public safety;
  • Preventing public nuisance.
