Superintendent Jim O’Ryan talks on the ongoing police presence in Didcot
I’m Jim O’Ryan, I’m the local area commander
for South Oxfordshire and the Vale of the White Horse. I’m here today meeting with residents
and our staff here in Didcot following the tragic deaths that have taken place here.
Obviously this is an extremely concerning incident for people who live locally, and
I really understand that they might be alarmed, but we do believe that this is quite a contained
incident, domestic related, and that people should feel reassured that this is a safe
area to live in. We have additional officers on duty and will do for some considerable
time, first of all making sure that we can continue with our investigation effectively,
but also to provide reassurance, and I’d encourage anybody that is concerned to feel free to
speak to those officers, or to contact us.
