Business Analyst DII (Digital Investigation and Intelligence) project is required to work with this UK Police Authority to lead their work developing the policing response in the use of digital communication as a way of committing crime and a means of gathering evidence.
As an experienced bluelight Business Analyst, you will help this force articulate what digital tools and techniques can add value to high volume crime investigations, describe the potential demand for these, and the required capacity (in the DII team and in generalist police teams) to use these tools effectively. You will balance the costs of investing in digital tools against realistic capacity savings (e.g. more efficient investigation of volume crimes) and work on the assumption that using DII tools should become mainstreamed within generalist police officer roles, if there is an efficiency benefit in using these tools. We are keen to understand how we can get upstream of cyber-enabled crime through intelligent use of digital techniques. You will act as a “sense-making hub” for DII and provide relevant and useful knowledge to generalist police teams, in order to increase efficiency of investigations or reduce crime. Lastly, you will help us maximise effectiveness of our potential digital investigative capabilities, focussing on those which add greatest value towards our corporate objectives.
This involves working alongside internal and external stakeholders and the national leads for cybercrime, digital forensics, open source, communications data and economic crime, to:
- understand the threat
- coordinate the national policing response
- develop a framework for digital intelligence and investigation
- gather evidence of effective policing responses
- engage with victims and their representatives
- build partnerships with industry and academia
This is a major transformational challenge for the police service and government to respond to the way in which communication is changing society and with it the way crime is evolving
