If you are successful in our recruitment process we will mentor you to achieve the Crime Scene Investigation Training (Stage 1). We are looking for individuals committed to follow a career in Crime Scene Investigation.

We are looking for someone who has:
• A good standard of education
• An inquisitive and enquiring mind

And who is:

The main responsibilities of the role are to:

Please note, successful candidates will be required to provide fingerprints and DNA samples, which will be used to speculatively search against local and national databases prior to appointment. This is to ensure that candidates have not previously come to adverse police attention and are not linked to any outstanding crime scenes. The fingerprint and DNA samples will also be used for inclusion on national databases so that they can be searched for elimination purposes.
