Job summary:

The Digital Forensics Unit is respected both nationally and internationally and is at the forefront in the development of cutting edge forensic techniques for modern policing.

Digital devices and information communication technology are present in almost every investigation Kent Police undertakes. These range from complex corporate computer networks and high capacity server/workstations, to mobile phone handsets, games consoles, digital CCTV systems and satellite navigation.

We are looking for talented individuals with the right aptitude and skills to join our team and experience the unique challenges of digital forensic investigations in a law enforcement environment.

Successful applicants will specialise in either computer or mobile phone examinations.

This role 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, planning the execution of search warrants, interviewing suspected offenders and presenting evidence in court.

In this role you will examine various types of digital devices i.e. PCs, satellite navigation systems, mobile phones, CD/DVD/Bluray media, MP3 players, games consoles (Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii) and flash media.

Personal qualities and skills

You will be educated to ‘A’ level or equivalent standard 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 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 and be able to work alone and as part of a team, 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.
