Professional Development Programme

Thames Valley Police is an employer which is supportive of professional development, seeking to ensure it is seen as an employer of choice.

As such, it supports the College of Policing’s Professional Development Programme (PDP), which has been introduced to support everyone in policing to make the best possible decisions and gain recognition for their skills and knowledge so that they can provide the best service to the public.

The PDP aims to:

  • Support development,
  • Recognise and enhance professional development,
  • Provide officers and staff with the opportunity to take responsibility for their career development,
  • Help officers and staff to maintain their skills,
  • Help recognise policing as a profession.
