About us

Thames Valley Police is one of the 43 police forces in England and Wales and is the largest non-metropolitan force. It covers over 2,200 square miles and three counties: Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

Our patch is as diverse as they come – historic cities meet vast rural spaces. Cutting-edge organisations work alongside world-class universities. 2.3 million people call it home and 6 million visit each year.

There’s four football league clubs and annual high-profile events including Royal Ascot, Reading Festival and Henley Regatta to keep an eye on. We often rise to unique challenges like Royal Weddings and Presidential visits, with millions of people around the world watching on.

We’re home to Windsor Castle and the PM’s country residence Chequers – which means we’re also home to a Protection Group of armed officers second only in size to the Metropolitan Police.

We also host two specialist regional units, Counter Terrorism Policing in the South East (CTPSE) and the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU). These units work across the South East, and include officers and staff from Thames Valley Police, Hampshire Constabulary, Kent Police, Surrey Police, and Sussex Police.

We work closely with Hampshire Constabulary and since 2011 we have shared a Joint Operations Unit (JOU). The JOU includes our roads policing unit, firearms capability, operational support, dogs unit, mounted unit (Thames Valley) and marine unit (Hampshire).

As you can see, policing our region is no mean feat. It takes a dedicated team of over 8,000 officers, staff and volunteers. Together, we aim to build stronger, more resilient communities, providing a modern police force which meets the needs of the public we serve.

Exciting challenges lie ahead – new digital technologies and ways of working are transforming the way we protect our communities. To ensure we deliver a high-quality service, we require the very best talent to be a part of the TVP family. A role in TVP is like no other and will give you the unique opportunity to take on a role to protect our communities and be the difference you want to see.

Our force is now recruiting. Join TVP and be proud to serve.
