A fantastic opportunity has arisen for two Digital Support Officers to join Suffolk Constabulary. Working within the Crime Safeguarding and Incident Management Command, the successful post holders will work alongside frontline detectives in either Criminal Investigation Departments (CID) or Safeguarding Investigation Units (SIU) in Lowestoft.
These exciting new and modern roles have been created in response to the proliferation of digital technology and its use and trail of evidence it leaves behind in crime. Almost all crimes committed have a digital element and the opportunities of digital evidence exploitation are therefore plentiful and growing at an ever-increasing pace.
A Digital Support Officer will be innovative, forward thinking with a keen eye for detail, providing operational support and guidance to detectives on a range of digital media related opportunities and tactics. They will use technical knowledge and have access to specialist systems to identify, gather, analyse and present digital evidence and lead in the creation and implementation of digital strategies for serious and complex investigations.
The post holder will be working in modern, diverse and dynamic environments where each day will bring about a different set of challenges, playing a vital role in bringing the most dangerous criminals in our County to justice and protecting the most vulnerable members of our communities.
