Realise your potential at TVP
The TVP officers featured in our new recruitment campaign are proof of how a career in policing at TVP is helping them realise their potential.
Since joining the police, Sergeant Emma Dainty had always wanted to become a Dog Handler, and she is now the first female Sergeant within the Joint Operating Unit Dog Support Unit, partnered with trainee Police Dog Rocco. Police Sergeant Mark Scully starting his career in ICR, and now is working in the Roads Policing Unit, keeping people safe and moving on our Thames Valley roads. Police Constable Natalie Barrette was previously a sports coach before joining the police; four years into her policing career, she had the opportunity to join our Armed Response Unit, where she is now working, encouraging more women officers to join.
The three officers are the first three stories featured in our campaign, their stories will be released on our TVP Careers website this week; more stories will be shared throughout this summer. Get inspired by our TVP People stories here
