An exciting and challenging opportunity has arisen for Police Staff to join the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit; Confidential Unit (ERSOU Confi).

ERSOU has responsibility for targeting serious and organised crime through the delivery of covert services across the region.

ERSOU Confidential Unit is at the heart of driving the Eastern Region Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) in delivering specialist covert policing capabilities to tackle threat, risk, harm and opportunity relating to identified Organised Crime Groups.

The role is aimed at those who seek to undertake intelligence work in support of serious and organised crime investigations. Officers will work with the ERSOU operational teams, the Serious and Organised Crime teams in each of the Forces, and any other Force department or Agency who require specialist intelligence support.
