Detective Constable Transferees & Rejoiners -NICHE Forces DE19
Following an internal review, we are increasing our Detective numbers and are looking for experienced Detective Constables to join our team.
Derbyshire Constabulary are currently recruiting experienced Detective Constables to work across our Divisions and Crime Support Department and could offer you just the move you are looking for.
As a DC in the department, you will take responsibility for the whole investigation process, from initial report stage, planning the investigation strategy to court hearing and beyond.
We also have vacancies in our Rape Investigation Unit and Child Abuse Investigation Unit for candidates with the appropriate experience.
To be successful you must have completed the initial Crime Investigators Development Programme (ICIDP) or equivalent (CID Foundation Course) and be accredited investigators at PIP level 2.
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. 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 have an excellent attendance record, are high performing and are looking for a new challenge, then this could be the place for you. In return, as a Detective Constable transferee, you will earn between £24,174 and £40,128 a year and will retain:
