1. Overview

Join our new fast track to detective programme and after your initial PC training you'll take up a trainee detective constable role within one of our Crime Investigation Departments (CID) or Vulnerability Investigation Teams (VIT). A mentor and detective tutor will be allocated to you to start your specialist training towards detective accreditation. 

In these front line roles you'll investigate serious and complex crime, protecting the public and bringing offenders to justice.
