Sussex Police recruiting investigators

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to help investigate crimes across Sussex and keep our communities safe?

We have opened recruitment for investigators who play a vital role in our investigations teams which contain a mix of police officers and staff.

Your day could begin by interviewing a suspect, gathering or reviewing evidence, taking witness statements, collecting items for forensic examination or creating files for court.

Detective Chief Superintendent Nick May said: “As a crime investigator you will be an important part of our investigations team, you will work closely with the police officers we have now and the new recruits we will soon be able to bring into our force thanks to a rise in the council tax.

“We’re looking to the future and using the flexibility of our local policing model to strengthen key areas to improve efficiency, which means we will be well placed to meet future policing needs and prioritise offences which affect the most vulnerable.

“As a crime Investigator you will be using new technology and be trained to use the right tools to respond to the increasingly complex policing challenges we face, you will play a key role in protecting vulnerable people.”

Investigators will be based across the county in Hastings, Eastbourne, Brighton, Worthing, Chichester and Crawley. They take on a wide variety of tasks and have responsibility for many parts of the investigations process.

As part of our drive to strengthen local policing we will also soon be opening up police constable recruitment.
