Digital Media Investigator - London

Post Posted: Jul 31, 18 14:43

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) have provided the City of London Police, which is recognised as the National Lead Force for Fraud, with funding to run an operationally independent law enforcement team dedicated to tackling intellectual property crime – this is Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU).

Thanks to close cooperation between the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and PIPCU, an opportunity has arisen for a member of staff to be employed by the MPAA affiliate, the Film Distributors Association, and seconded-full-time to PIPCU.

Applications are invited for the position of Digital Media Investigator on a contract basis, with funding in place until summer 2019 (with a potential for this to be extended until April 2020).
You will work within the City of London Police, spending the majority of your time based within the Forensic Services Dept, with a requirement to work within the PIPCU office as required. You will have a dual role: Firstly to provide expert evidence seizure, capture and imaging on a variety of cases, predominantly (but not exclusively) those being investigated within PIPCU. Secondly, you will work closely with the officer in the case for a number of complex PIPCU cases, taking responsibility for the full range of examination of material, including judging its relevance to the investigation and producing disclosure schedules as per the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996.

You will utilise your training and skills to assist in the field of forensic computing and network investigation to Industry Standards in police led intellectual property crime investigations including on-site analysis. Where applicable, additional training will be provided through a combination of in-house training and industry qualifications.

You may also be called upon to assist in the execution of warrants where computers or digital media may be recovered. It should be pointed out that on occasion, images of an indecent and abusive nature could be viewed as part of an intrusive viewing of computer files and memory etc. Occupational mental health screening is a requirement of the role.

The role will be to identify and recover forensic evidence from a wide range of digital and electronic media and to offer guidance and advice where possible.

The successful candidate will be required to evidence Core Skills in Data Recovery and Analysis as well as industry qualifications and experience in the use of EnCase, FTK, X-Ways, IEF/Axiom and Blacklight/Macquisition or equivalent tools and associated procedures.

PIPCU’s jurisdiction of England and Wales may on occasions require some travel and staying away overnight, with clear consideration of value for money.
