Thames Valley Police Open Day

Date and Time: 
Saturday 18th August 10am to 4pm
Event Details: 

This summer, Thames Valley Police (TVP) will once again be opening its doors to the public for its annual force open day.
As this year marks 50 years since the formation of TVP, the force will be celebrating the work it has done for the past half a century.
Join us on Saturday 18 August at our Training Centre in Sulhamstead, near Reading (post code RG7 4DX) between 10am and 4pm.
There will be something for everyone as stalls showcase what TVP has to offer. Some of the highlights include:
•    Arena displays, including the public order team combined with the mounted section
•    Children’s fancy dress competition – come dressed in a police themed costume to be in with the chance of winning a fabulous prize
•    Pat and chat with the mounted section – A chance to meet officers and their horses
•    See the force helicopter and meet the pilots
•    Learn about different departments such as the Forensic Investigation Unit and FISO (Force Intelligence and Specialist Operations)
•    Visit the police museum
•    Hear about what it is like to be on the other end of 999 and 101 calls in our specialist talks, also including how it feels to be at the centre of complex major crime investigations
As at past events, TVP will be raising money for two worthy charities. This year, these are Mind Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and the Police Dependants Trust.
After the record breaking 8,000 visitors last year, organisers have been working hard to improve access to the event. This year there will be two entrances for visitors at South Drive and White Lodge. Due to this, it is important that visitors follow the signs to the event. The roads will be busy and narrow country lanes can make it difficult to turn around if you go the wrong way.
Car parking is available on a first come, first served basis and will open from 9.30am. Only assistance dogs are permitted, visitors who arrive with dogs will be turned away and dogs must not be left in cars.
On entry to the event bag searches will be taking place.
The event, which has free entry, starts at 10am with last entry at 3.30pm for a 4pm finish.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event and celebrating 50 years of TVP.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter channels for further information in the lead up to the event.
