The Digital, Cyber and Communications (DCC) department is undergoing significant changes. It’s all to improve the way we deliver digital forensics services to the MPS and the Criminal Justice System. We’re aiming to offer three different levels of service. As part of this, we’re introducing digital forensic kiosks into custody suites and opening small labs across London. This is a rare chance to be part of the Central Digital Forensics laboratory and help bring criminals to justice – all while developing a unique skill-set.

You’ll be crucial to our vision, as you’ll help us to enable complex investigations, and develop new tools to meet the needs of future technologies. An expert in your field, you’ll be a valuable member of the Forensic Video department, able to interpret digital forensic submissions and provide detailed reports. Confident in the recovery of deleted or corrupted video material, you’ll reverse engineer everything from CCTV recorders to phones – creating compilations for court presentation. With outstanding communication skills, you’ll also oversee a small team and provide peer reviews against ISO 17025 standards.

To join us, you need to be confident with all types of video technology and forensics techniques. With second-to-none expertise, you’ll have proven experience in presenting evidence, working on criminal investigations and attending court. And committed to constantly improving technical practices and procedures, you’ll be dedicated to keeping track of emerging trends.
