Police Officer

Transferee Detective Constable - Child Abuse Trafficking and Exploitation Team (CATE)

Leamington Spa
Full Time

Transferee Detective Constable

Child Abuse Trafficking and Exploitation Team (CATE)

Leamington Spa

The CATE team is currently being formed to tackle Child Abuse, Trafficking and Exploitation in Warwickshire.

CATE will be a specialist team initially based in Leamington, but will eventually operate across three hubs with bases also in Nuneaton and Rugby.

We are now inviting transferee applications from Detective Constables, offering an exciting opportunity to be part of a new initiative for Warwickshire Police

We are asking that Detectives who would like to apply are PIP Level 2 trained and have completed their Specialist Child Abuse Investigations Development Programme (SCAIDP) course, or are working towards this.

These are demanding but rewarding roles and would suit officers who enjoy interviewing vulnerable victims, partnership working and investigating complex cases; protecting some of the county’s most vulnerable people.

Our Detective Sergeant says:

"What I have found challenging is the change in thinking and approach to child exploitation. Even where children are committing crimes, we need to look at them as victims and identify why they are committing crimes and who are exploiting the vulnerabilities. We also have a closer relationship with other agencies and work together for solutions. All of this brings challenges but they make the work interesting and rewarding. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a young person realise they have been exploited and all they want is to have positivity in their young lives."

For further information on the role, please view the attached job profile and CATE Team information.  You can also find more details here

The closing date for applications to be submitted is 12:00 noon on 18th February 2020. 




This opportunity is closed to applications.
