Could you be West Yorkshire Police’s next detective?
West Yorkshire Police are opening a recruitment window for detective constables to join the Force.
Nationally, there is a shortfall in detective numbers and last year West Yorkshire Police announced it was taking part in a national initiative which will supplement detective numbers and aims to bring rapid support to investigators working in challenging fields.
Successful applicants will begin a two-year development programme. You will have the specific training, support and guidance to ultimately become a Detective Constable.
T/Chief Inspector Tanya Wilkins, who has been a detective for the majority of her career, is now the highest ranking female black officer at West Yorkshire Police. She has recently taken on a new role in the Force’s Positive Action Team.
T/Chief Inspector Wilkins joined the Force in March 2001 where she was a police constable based at Weetwood Police Station in Leeds. She became a trainee investigator in 2004, qualified as a detective in 2005 and has since worked up the ranks in a variety of roles across West Yorkshire Police.
The two-week recruitment window opens on Monday 25 March
