Join our Investigation Management Unit (IMU) and you’ll perform an interesting, challenging, and important role supporting crime investigation and recording.
you will be creating and quality assuring crime reports by reviewing incidents provided to us by 101/999 contact handlers, online crime reports, email or from police officers
based on the information given you will need to carry out reviews as to whether there are lines of enquiries which need to be explored, establishing investigative opportunities and make an initial outcome decision
being an IMU investigator can be challenging and unpredictable, and no two days are the same. You will be involved in creating and reviewing reports for a range of different crimes, from criminal damage and shoplifting through to sexual assaults and domestic incidents. You will receive full support, training and the skills to ensure that you can be the best you can be. The role can be challenging, but it also creates a sense of achievement and satisfaction to know that you will be helping victims and witnesses, keeping our communities safe.
The role of an IMU Investigator is primarily an agile worker role where you can choose to work from home or from one of our offices. However, you will be required to attend Ashford Police Station for training and team meetings as and when required. If a home-based role is deemed not suitable by yourself or the force, then considerations will be made for you to work from another Kent Police location.
