Job Opportunity - Kent Police

Post Posted: Aug 25, 07 20:02

Forensic Computer Analyst – Force Headquarters
Permanent Contract
Grade F/G £27,211 - £37,537

Kent Police continues to enjoy the reputation for innovation in the fight against crime. Our Digital Forensics Unit is respected both nationally and internationally and has been a key player in the development of cutting edge forensic techniques as well as playing a leading role in the development and delivery of national digital forensics training.

Computers and information communication technology are present in some form in almost every investigation the Police Service undertakes. These range from complex corporate computer networks and high capacity server/workstations, to mobile phone handsets, digital CCTV systems and satellite navigation.

With this in mind we are seeking a suitably qualified and talented individual who wishes to forge a career in forensic computing.

The role of Forensic Computer Analyst involves the collection, extraction, interpretation and presentation of digital evidence in support of a criminal investigation. This encompasses many technical and non-technical disciplines such as forensic data recovery, analysis of digital evidence, composition of technical reports, interviewing suspected offenders and presenting evidence in court.

Outside of the forensic caseload, there is a requirement to provide support and training to Police Staff in connection with digital evidence and the investigation of Internet related crime.

The successful candidates will ideally hold a computer science qualification or equivalent, and be able to demonstrate significant technical ability.

Your knowledge of computer software and hardware will be thorough and will include PC architecture, operation, connectivity and networking (in particular, knowledge of the underlying protocols of the internet such as HTTP, SMTP, POP, TCP/IP, NNTP etc.). You will have a good knowledge of a variety of Operating Systems and understand the core principals of data storage. Knowledge of software development and programming languages such as VB, C#, C++ and .NET will be advantageous as will previous experience as a digital forensics practitioner.

To balance these technical attributes, you will need to be a highly motivated team player with excellent written and oral skills. You will have the ability to manage a high caseload and must have the flexibility to adapt to this dynamic area of modern police work.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the Digital Forensics Unit for further information on 01622 654780.
