Welcome to TVP Engage

TVP Engage is a new platform from Thames Valley Police to answer your questions in live online Q&A sessions.

Listening to the voices of our communities and keeping you informed of the work we are doing to prevent and tackle crime in your area is an integral part of our work.

We aim to speak to as many of our communities as possible so our live sessions are designed to build on the face-to-face forums already taking place. They can be accessed anywhere, by anyone, and can even be reviewed afterwards if you miss the live event.

How to join a live Q&A session

When a TVP Engage session is live, you can watch the conversation below.

If you would like to ask one of our police officers a question, just type in the box the name that you would like displayed in the public chat and press ‘Sign in’. You can then type your question in the comment box and press ‘Comment’ when you’re ready to submit it. Your question will then be sent directly to the panel of officers for them to read and reply.

Your question won’t be visible in the live chat until it has been answered. They may answer your question publicly or decide to send a message directly back to you.

Think Before You Dial Engage Q&A brief – 18 August 6-8pm

We know that you are familiar with using 999 for emergencies when a life is in danger or a crime is happening right now, and with using 101 for incidents that are not an emergency, however you may not be aware that you can report non-emergency crimes to us online. Online crime reporting has been introduced to offer another option to victims of crime when reporting a crime or incident where an urgent police response is not required. While we won’t be able to discuss individual cases, this Q&A will be an opportunity for you to learn more about online reporting, how you can use it effectively to contact us about a non-urgent crime and what happens when our team of call handlers receive your report.
