Detective Constable - CID and Domestic Abuse

We are looking for accredited detective constables or those officers who have passed the National Investigators Exam and are willing to complete the Initial Crime Investigation Development Programme for Detective Constable (DC) posts in CID and Domestic Abuse investigation teams across Essex.

CID provides specialist investigation of serious crimes within Essex including dwelling burglary, serious assaults and robbery.

These investigations can be complex and those officers not already qualified as Detectives will be required to complete the ICIDP programme, gaining qualification as a Detective Constable.  Each officer will be fully supported through the process, with a Tutor DC assigned to them.

Our teams operate on a 6-on 3-off shift pattern between 08.00 and 22.00 (3 late then 3 day shifts) which is popular in terms of officers’ work-life balance. 

Primarily, we are seeking keen and enthusiastic individuals who are willing to work as part of our team. This is a demanding but rewarding role requiring a high level of resilience, professionalism and dedication.  Experience is preferable, but is not a pre-requisite of the role.
