Your main function will be the delivery of part of a number of investigative courses, including Child Abuse, Domestic Abuse, Serious Sexual Assault, Cybercrime Specialist Interviewing and Intelligence as well as the National CID course.

For further information regarding the role please contact T/Detective Inspector Steve Witts 07817 817717 or Detective Inspector Cat McKay 07800 702182, attachment days to visit the Training Centre and get a feel for the role can be facilitated for those candidates who want them.
