  • The force helicopter will be dropping by with an opportunity for you to meet the pilots and grab a photo.
  • 11 exciting talks throughout the day; find out what family liaison is, what it's like to answer the 999 and 101 calls, and learn about the history of Thames Valley Police.
  • A fancy dress competition, dress in your best police themed costume to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize.
  • Get involved in our scavenger hunt which will see you take a trip round our stalls to follow the clues and bring out your inner detective.
  • Visit the museum and museum shop which will be celebrating its return to Sulhamstead.

As at previous events, TVP will also be raising funds for two worthy charities. This year the public's donations will go towards supporting PACT and Pilgrim Bandits.
