Could you create the latest crime-fighting technology?

As the challenge of fighting crime becomes increasingly complex, we’re turning to technology to give us a new edge. Our Technology, Research & Innovation team comes up with advanced technology to help our officers – and you can be at the heart of pioneering projects that help keep London safe.

You will be part of one of our Operational teams, creating innovative ideas to solve complex policing problems, and supporting technical initiatives already in place to support the team’s cutting edge policing work.   It’s all about understanding what our officers need and coming up with brilliant, workable ideas.

You’ll have a varied, hands-on role that will involve using your technical and creative experience in 2D and 3D imaging software.

Helping us get the most from imagery by innovating and looking for ways it can aid investigations further. And all the time, you’ll be keeping abreast of emerging technology to make sure our team is ready for the future. With the ever-changing nature of technology today, there’s ample scope to learn and develop your skills

You’ll be working both independently and in project teams, so you’ll need to be comfortable collaborating and working on your own to drive progress forward.
