Play a vital part in bringing offenders to justice  

Policing a city with nearly nine million residents presents its own unique challenges. The Met’s Forensic Services unit helps keep London safer by providing an invaluable response to the capital’s complex policing challenges. The first UK Fingerprint Bureau was founded at Scotland Yard in 1901 and today receives over 14,000 cases a year. Join us as a Reporting Fingerprint Examiner and take your place in history, using your skills and experience to help solve even the most complex crimes.

 In this role, you’ll be working in the UK’s largest police force, delivering an efficient, accurate and effective technical fingerprint examination and verification service. As part of an investigation team, you’ll work on all levels of crime, including homicide, rape and counter terrorism. Your insight will bring offenders to justice and support the wider judicial system.


 Having completed National Fingerprint Training at an advanced level, you’ll also have wide-ranging fingerprint casework experience at varying levels of complexity. You’ll need a good understanding of all disciplines within Forensic Services and a thorough knowledge of the specialist computer systems that support it. You may be currently working in, or retired from, another Fingerprint Bureau in another police or law enforcement agency. Highly motivated with excellent communication skills, you’ll have five or more GSCEs or equivalent.
