Full Job Description
This is a unique development opportunity for motivated officers to support policing activity across the force area. We are looking for proactive officers who can show they target OCG’s, provide quality intelligence logs and can contribute to an already successful team. They must have an awareness of crime trends and how to respond to these.

Officers must be able to work with minimal supervision, and able to self-generate policing activity by planning and prioritising workload. They need to be confident in using the National Decision Model to asses risk and respond to it.

Officers who are successful will undertake the duties of a General Purpose and Specialist Dog Handler. Therefore being confident and capable of handling a lively dog is vital.

This is a physically demanding job where a good level of fitness is required and level 6.3 is to be achieved on the bleep test.

Officers will complete in the first instance a 13 week initial general purpose dog handler’s course. Once the officer and dog are competent and capable working on the duty shift they will then gain a second specialist dog with further training required. The type of specialist dog will depend on the force requirements at the time.

It is a requirement that upon appointment successful applicants have a suitable space at their home address to have a provided dog kennelling system sited for the kennelling of Police Dogs. The space is to be surrounded securely by a minimum of 6ft fence with gated access. Applicants are also required to have a suitable vehicle for the transportation of the dogs with room for 2 fixed cages. The Dog Support Unit Sgt and trainers will check both of these requirements.

Applicants must have completed their probationary period.
