2x Crime Scene Investigator roles available
Crime Scene Investigator roles with the Regional Scientific Support Services in Leeds and Bradford (with potential further vacancies available in the Wakefield area)
Regional Scientific Support Services (RSSS) forms part of West Yorkshire Police (WYP) and supplies Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) services to the Yorkshire and Humber police forces. Crime Scene Investigators are locally based within the communities they serve. An exciting opportunity has arisen in the West Yorkshire area where we are looking to recruit two Crime Scene Investigators. We are looking for candidates that not only will become experienced CSI’s but have the potential of progressing to a Senior Crime Scene Investigator role.
It is a real pity (Pete) that a degree or operational experience is essential as a CSI does not need a degree to do their job. By all means have one but not everyone is capable of getting a degree and saddling themselves with £50K worth of debt for a role that you need to think critically, read and write in English and be able to communicate. That’s really disappointing.
