Thames Valley Police (TVP) is actively looking for people to ‘be the difference they want to see’ in their communities, as Police Officer recruitment re-opens.

The force is now accepting applications the Police Constable-Degree Holder Entry Programme (PC-DHEP).

This will be followed by an opportunity for those who do not hold a degree to join via the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) on 1 September. 

Since introducing the new Police Constable entry routes (PC-DHEP and PCDA) in 2019, in partnership with Bucks New University (BNU), TVP have recruited over 170 new officers from a wide variety of backgrounds.

In the past 12 months, 44.1% of those new joiners have been female, whilst 15.2% of new joiners have been from Black, Asian or Minority-Ethnic backgrounds; this is progress as the force works towards fully representing the communities it serves.

Our new student officers have ranged in age from 19 to 51, bringing with them a wide variety of previous life and work experience including community mental health support, the military, retail and leisure, foster care, the prison service, the travel industry, teaching, animal welfare, as well as university graduates and college-leavers; demonstrating that policing continues to appeal to a wide range of people.

Despite their many differences, our new recruits all share a common purpose; to serve the public, protect our communities and keep people safe; it is this natural affinity to help others that we are looking for now. 

Policing is a challenging yet rewarding career. It offers opportunity for progression and specialisation, plus unrivalled camaraderie and team spirit. It is not easy though; we serve the public 24/7, 365, demand is high and the reality is that you are dealing with people often at the worst moment of their lives who will be looking to you for support.   

Chief Constable John Campbell says “When things are at their worst for people, I want us to be at our best.” 

We are looking for resilient individuals whose first instinct is to help and support others; the problem solvers and solution-finders, those calm under pressure, who ask questions and are curious, but also approachable with a natural ability to communicate with people from all walks of life.  

Does this sound like you or someone you know, who can make a positive impact in the community?

Hurry and submit your application today!
