Social Media

Social media has opened up many new channels which Thames Valley Police can use to increase direct communication with the public. We’ve long since recognised the opportunities and benefits associated with utilising social media to engage, interact and educate the public on Thames Valley Police topics. So, what are you waiting for: follow/like/subscribe today!


Join Thames Valley Police on Facebook (opens new window). Unfortunately, we cannot answer every question about incidents that may be happening across the Thames Valley region (but we do try to answer as many as we can). Please be assured that, if there is anything we need your assistance with or that we need to tell you about, it will be posted on Facebook.

Sharing information on Facebook can often be an integral part of informing the public about ongoing investigations and we are always overwhelmed by the response we receive from our Facebook community.

Facebook is not monitored 24/7 and cannot be used to report crimes. For more information on how to report a crime, please visit our Report a Crime or Emergency section.


For the latest news and information from Thames Valley Police Press Bureau, please follow us on Twitter (opens new window). Accounts are not monitored 24/7 and cannot be used to report crimes. For more information on how to report a crime, please visit our Report a Crime or Emergency section.

We’ve given Twitter access to over 200 officers so you can now engage with your local bobby. For more information, visit our Local Twitter Accounts page.


For video updates about ongoing campaigns, recruitment and incidents, please subscribe to our YouTube channel (opens new window).
