A NEW Thames Valley Police job website aiming to highlight less obvious roles launches tomorrow.

It comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced he would be funding 20,000 new police officers across the UK.

Thames Valley Police said its old website did not ‘bring to life’ what it is like to work in the force, but the swish new careers portal will ‘shine a light on different departments’ and highlight less well-known officer roles.

Leading the team putting together the new website is recruitment manager Caroline Cookson.

She said: “It will show behind the scenes.

“Not everybody wants to be on the front line, we wanted to show the breadth of opportunity. We have lots of different departments – there is forensics, the HR team, the call centre.”

The team also shed some light on the new Prime Minister’s pledge to roll out 20,000 officers across the country.

Boris Johnson made the promise as one of his key commitments during the leadership race.

If all goes to plan then TVP will get some of the promised officers, but despite Mr Johnson saying the recruitment drive would begin in September the force said it was still not clear on the details.

Speaking to the paper, Supt Kath Lowe - who has worked in the force for 31 years - said her team had no idea of the number of officers TVP would be getting. She said: “We don’t have any of the details on the number of spaces.”

But, she added, the team would be ready when they found out.

Ms Cookson added: “It is good news that we are getting more officers, but as Kath said we don’t have any of the details.
