What do you have to wear? And will my age restrict anything as I’m only 18, 19 next month?
Can wear own smart casual clothes. You have to undergo strict vetting before any one is confirmed in post.
My background checks with TVP began at the end of September and they are still on going. How much longer should they take? I have friends in police forces across the country and they were only waiting for five weeks! (The role is information governance officer)
Mine were started in February and completed in the middle to the end of May. I’d contact the manager in regards to your position if you’re worried.
Does Thames Valley Police require pre-employment background checks? What kind of background check does Thames Valley Police do and how long does it take to complete?
Full security and financial vetting is carried out post interview. Despite that long process, they never actually contacted my referees...
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Thames Valley Police a better place to work?
I think fairness needs to be taken into account more whether it is police staff or police officers.
While in the office I have been able to communicate with others via email and/or telephone. When out with Neighbourhood Teams I have been able to communicate with a Sergent and/or Inspector via the Radio of my accompanying PCSO.
