It takes a great deal of people from different backgrounds, with diverse skills and experience to serve the Northumbria Police force area effectively, think you have what it takes to help us make a difference? This could be the perfect time for you to join us!

 

An opportunity has arisen for a Victim Identification Officer working within the Paedophile Online Investigation Team at Northumbria Police. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to play a vital role in the protection of children.

 

You will provide specialist support to investigations through the examination of digital media for the purpose of identifying victims, offenders, and locations to maximise safeguarding of victims which will fundamentally contribute to our priority of bringing offenders to justice. Although challenging and demanding, this is an extremely rewarding role – a statement very few occupations can make.

 

Why #TeamNP?

 

In return for your dedication and experience, we offer up to 29 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.


What will I be doing?

 

You will be part of the Paedophile Online Investigation Team conducting investigations using specialist software to trace victims and offenders through a blend of traditional investigative methods and the digital footprint.

·       Supporting and providing specialist investigative advice to officer’s force wide to inform suspect and victim-based interventions.

·       Delivering presentations to partner agencies including schools.

·       Conducting visits and providing guidance and advice to parents and children identified at risk.

·       Completing and disseminating identification bulletins.

·       Liaising with national/ international law enforcement.

     
There will be a daily requirement to review and categorise suspected indecent images of children.

 

You will liaise with investigating officers, specialists, and partner agencies to maximise identification opportunities and ensure safeguarding of children. You will also be required to provide evidential reports, statements, and testimony at court where necessary.

 

What do I need?

 ·       Investigative experience – PIP level 2 is desirable.

 ·       Previous experience using software applications to problem solve.

 ·       Excellent communication and organisational skills

·       You will need to have the resilience to regularly deal with abusive and offensive imagery of extreme violence, obscenity, and depravity
