RETIRED Thames Valley Police officers are being asked to rejoin the force as it tries to cope with the coronavirus crisis.

Ex-officers, investigators, PCSOs and call handlers who left the police in the last two years are being offered temporary work with a speedier return process.

More from TVP:

Other roles desperately needed are contact management centre officers and detention officers.

Anybody who is willing to re-join should email their name and number to by Friday April 3.
