Teach trainee detectives everything you know
London is home to almost nine million people across 32 boroughs. Keeping them all safe and bringing criminals to justice depends almost entirely on the skills of our officers. This is your opportunity to make sure that those solving the most serious and complex crimes in future will have the best possible start to their detective careers.
This crucial training role will see you support, advise and develop trainee detectives from a variety of policing backgrounds. As part of a dedicated Learning and Development team for TDCs, you’ll coach and mentor each officer to complete the PIP 2 DC programme successfully and pass on everything you’ve learned in your own career as a detective.
You will meet all new officers and induct them onto the programme. You will agree a contract with them and set monthly development meetings. A live coaching document will ensure that notes of meetings and agreed actions. Plans are open to scrutiny and allow for accountability.
Throughout, you’ll develop optimal performance of the officer. You'll review and discuss incidents with them to support critical thinking skills to decide how incidents, crime scenes, and investigations have gone and how they might approach similar situations in the future. In addition, you’ll work with their line managers to gain a rounded view of needed development and learning.
Together with valid PIP2 accreditation, you’ll need substantial and recent well-evidenced experience in the conduct of police investigations and conducting interviews as a detective constable or detective sergeant. You’ll also be able to call on a good working knowledge of criminal law and of the criminal justice system, and well-developed communication and interpersonal skills. The ability to work unsupervised and as part of a team will be key, while a coaching certificate would be ideal.
