Thames Valley Police Force Open Day 10 August 2019

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Sadly, this event has had to be cancelled due to the prospect of inclement weather including dangerously strong winds.

The annual Thames Valley Police (TVP) Open Day will be held on Saturday 10 August at its training centre in Sulhamstead, between 10am and 4pm.

The Roads Policing Unit, Forensic Investigations Unit, Contact Management team and Specialist Operations team are among over 50 exhibitors who will be attending to showcase their work.

Highlights include:

  • Displays from the dogs section, with local search and rescue dogs and the public order team, which has a new twist in store this year.
  • The force helicopter will be dropping by with an opportunity to meet the pilots and grab a photo.
  • 11 exciting talks throughout the day; find out what family liaison is, what it’s like to answer the 999 and 101 calls, and learn about the history of Thames Valley Police.
  • A fancy dress competition – dress in your best police themed costume to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize.
  • Get involved in a scavenger hunt which will see you take a trip round the stalls to follow the clues and bring out your inner detective.
  • Visit the museum and museum shop which will be celebrating its return to Sulhamstead.

TVP will also be raising funds for two worthy charities: PACT and Pilgrim Bandits.

Key Information:
