How could tech change the face of policing? Find out.

From forensic services to number plate recognition, tech has revolutionised policing. With current advances, there's even greater potential for transformation - and you could help drive progress. As Digital Horizons Support, you'll explore new technologies and shape the way they're adopted, learning new skills as you go. It's a chance to influence 21st century policing and keep future London safe.

Digital Horizons is a unique team, based within our Digital Intelligence Services. Its aim is to improve the way we work through innovation, process engineering, systems design, technological acquisition and access to data. In this key support role, you'll help us explore new technologies that can have a huge impact on policing today and tomorrow. Working with partners across the organisation, you'll identify gaps in our capability and work on ways to solve them. Solutions could range from developing apps to manage workflows, to re-engineering processes to fit current challenges. The work of the Digital Horizons team is extensive and you'll work with partners from across law enforcement and beyond.

The key to progress is curiosity, so you must be a self-learner. You'll be driven to pursue exciting new solutions and undertake challenging projects. You'll also have a background or interest in a relevant field, such as technology, data science, computer programming or social media. A team player, who's IT savvy, you'll enjoy building partnerships.

Besides the rewarding nature of the job itself, a competitive salary and a Civil Service pension, you'll also benefit from excellent career and professional development. If you're looking to progress, this is a great opportunity.
