The Home Office collects and publishes statistics on the number of police officers in each Police Force Area (PFA) in England and Wales in the annual ‘Police workforce, England and Wales’ statistical bulletin.

The number of officers in the Thames Valley area, in each year from 31 March 2007 to 31 March 2019, by headcount and full-time equivalence (FTE), can be found in open data tables available here:


We have also announced the allocation of 183 additional officers in Thames Valley Police by the end of 2020/21 as part of the Police Uplift Programme.

These new officers will be in addition to those hired to fill existing vacancies and the extra officers already being recruited due to the increase in police funding for 2019-20.
