Thames Valley Police


Police officers wear their unique warrant number (‘shoulder number’) on their shoulder epaulettes, along with their stripes. These numbers allow you to identify officers. \n\nAll police officer warrant cards carry their photograph and certify their identity, the police force for which they work, and their entitlement to use police powers.\n\nThames Valley Police uniformed officers and staff display the Thames Valley Police Authority coat of arms on their uniforms and badges.
