PS/420/BCH - PSD Referrals Officer - Professional Standards Department

Location: Biggleswade
Role: Police Staff
Department: Professional Standards
Closing Date: 02-06-19
The Professional Standards Department have a vacancy for the role of PSD Referrals Officer and are seeking to appoint an individual with experience in dealing with complex investigations.

The investigations involve incidents of Death or Serious Injury (DSI) after police contact or serious incident which require oversight by the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC). It can be a stressful environment with a high workload demanding high quality paperwork and file submission as we deal with legally qualified professionals and other outside agencies such as the IOPC.

We are looking for an extremely motivated and dedicated individual to work in this high pressured department and an individual that has either already received a Professionalising Investigation Programme (PIP) qualification or an individual that is willing to undertake and gain this qualification once in post.

The post holder will be responsible for completing local DSI investigations and be the Single Point of Contact for the IOPC when they are independently investigating DSI cases. Knowledge of The Police Reform Act 2002 – Schedule 3, The Police Complaints and Misconduct regulations 2012, The Police Performance Regulations 2012, Code of Ethics, and the Statutory Guidance is desirable and an internal knowledge of the BCH complaints/misconduct procedures would also be of benefit.

Applicants will not only have a proven track record within the investigation field but must also provide ample evidence of leading by example with pride and professionalism in line with the Code of Ethics and the Standards of Professional Behaviour. Please refer to 3.1.14 of the BCH01/015 Recruitment, Selection, Posting and Promotion Policy around restrictions on applications.

This post is based at Biggleswade but operating across the three forces is an essential requirement of these roles.
