Transferee Detective Constables DE24

Make your experience count, join Derbyshire Constabulary

At Derbyshire Constabulary we pride ourselves on recognising people with real potential. That’s why we offer our officers so much support, motivation and training because, as they improve, so will our force.

We want to increase the numbers of experienced detectives in our area-based CID hubs, dealing with a full range of crime investigation. For officers with appropriate experience, we also have vacancies available in Public Protection. As your career develops, we will be able to provide you with opportunities to join our renowned regional unit (the East Midlands Special Operations Unit) dealing with Major Crime, Serious and Organised Crime and Counter-Terrorism across five forces. We are investing in our response to online abuse, high tech crime, foreign national offending and historic child sex abuse and there will be future opportunities in these areas too.

Derbyshire is a predominantly rural area which includes large parts of the Peak District National Park, offering opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle and an enhanced quality of life. However, we also have vibrant urban centres in the city of Derby and the town of Chesterfield and our central location, with excellent transport links and trains taking you to London in 90 minutes, suits those who also enjoy the city life or like to escape and travel on their rest days.

If you are an accredited Detective Constable, with skills and experience in managing a range of complex investigations, we would love to hear from you.

Whether you want to specialise in a particular area of policing, or progress through the ranks, our experienced leaders can help you to reach your goals. All you have to do is bring us your talent, dedication and enthusiasm and we’ll welcome you to the team.

If you are high performing and looking for a new challenge, then this could be the place for you. In return, as a detective officer transferring from a Home Office Police Force, you will retain:

  • Your previous service and current levels of pay (excluding force specific benefits i.e. London weighting).
  • Annual leave entitlement, as long as there is no break in service.
  • Your current pension arrangements.

The must haves

  • Substantive in the rank of constable.
  • Be a member of a Home Office force or Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) or Police Scotland (please note we cannot accept an application to transfer from an officer serving with a non-Home Office police force).
  • Evidence of completion of ICIPD and competency at PIP level 2.
  • Experience of working in a CID environment.
  • Knowledge and understanding of Guardian, RIPA and NIM.
  • Have a full manual driving licence.
  • Prepared to use own vehicle and undertake assessment to drive Derbyshire police vehicles
  • Have no outstanding discipline or integrity issues.

What’s in it for you?

At Derbyshire Constabulary, we aim to create an environment that puts people first. We want you to feel supported in everything you do, so you can give your very best. What’s more, we have a range of reward and benefits that if you join us you could enjoy.
