We are a Disability Confident employer, meaning we are committed to providing the necessary facilities and opportunities for employing and retaining disabled people and those with health conditions.
The PIRC is committed to a fair and open recruitment process:
This trainee programme has been extremely successful with eight trainees having gone on to become Investigators. Eight further recruits are currently undertaking the programme and the PIRC hopes to continue to develop new recruits in this way.
Investigators work in a team carrying out investigations into serious incidents involving the police. They have a proven experience of gathering evidence and are capable of conducting criminal, death and serious injury enquiries.
Some of our investigators also work as Family Liaison Officers. Their role is to support families when a family member suddenly dies, provide them with regular updates and to provide support and advice where appropriate.
Complaint Handling Review officers work in a team to review how the police have handled relevant complaints made by members of the public. They examine police files, CCTV, legislation and police procedures and protocols to produce a Complaint Handling Review (CHR) report.
There are a variety of roles within Corporate Services. Staff here are key to providing the functions of HR, Finance and Facilities management to support the day-to-day running of the organisation.
Our Communications Officers are involved promoting the work of the PIRC, including the production of corporate publications, such as the Annual Report and Accounts and Business Plan. They also work with the media in relation to many of the high profile investigations and CHRs undertaken by the organisation.
