Become a Detective with Thames Valley Police

Alert message sent 17/07/2020 16:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is now accepting expressions of interest for the Detective Constable - Degree Holder Entry Programme (DC- DHEP).

Already hold a degree or in the final year of your study? Eager to pursue a career in investigation? Aspire to manage your own investigations from start to finish? Motivated by a desire to do the right thing and get justice for victims?

Typically described as inquisitive, observant, tenacious, methodical, dedicated, resilient, attention to detail oriented with solid research skills combined with confident decision-making? The Detective-DHEP could be for you.

The Detective-DHEP is a rigorous, intensive and demanding two-year fast track to the Detective Constable (DC) entry route. Like the Police Constable-DHEP (PC-DHEP), it is a work-based programme, supported by on and off the job learning.

On successful completion of your probation, you will achieve a Graduate Diploma in Professional Policing Practice plus have acquired the additional PIP2 learning, training and accreditation to qualify you as a Detective Constable. 

The course requires commitment and dedication to both serving the public and meeting the demands of the development programme, whilst offering a fantastic opportunity for you to continue to learn beyond your initial degree and earning a salary as a fully warranted police officer from your first day.

The starting salary for all new recruits is £26,177 (which includes £2,000 South-East allowance). On the current system officers can expect to be earning a salary in excess of £40,000 per annum by your 7th year in the job.
