Information about the role

Counter Terrorism Policing North West (CTPNW) is a five-force collaboration delivering Counter Terrorism (CT) services to our regional forces as well as forming part of the national CT Network. Our staff work to the Government’s CONTEST strategy under the four pillars of Prevent, Protect, Prepare and Pursue. We use a functional model with Senior Responsible Officers, line manged by the CT Head, leading areas of Investigations, Intelligence, Business Services, Borders, Special Projects, Prevent and Change.

CTPNW’s mission is to work together to keep people safe from terrorism. Our priorities focus us to drive business through performance, improvement and transformation so we can continue to counter the ever-changing threat of terrorism and extremism. Operational oversight and governance is managed by the CT ACC and the CT Head coordinates delivery against the four strands of CONTEST strategy (Prevent, Protect, Pursue and Prepare) in collaboration with local policing teams and other partner agencies. At the heart of CTPNW is our people, we are committed to continuing to make the CTPNW a great place to work.


As Detective Inspector within Ops Support you will be responsible for CTPNW’s dedicated source unit (DSU), Sensitive Intelligence Unit and the Covert Authorities Bureau. A strong track record of proactive investigative experience is essential in helping you shape the proactive work within CTPNW, working as a Controller and assisting the AO and their deputies with preparing and granting relevant authorities.

You will be working extremely closely with the security service to develop our understanding of national security risks through human intelligence, and developing strategies to mitigate them. You will be creative and dynamic in delivering solutions to meet the SIO’s investigative requirements.

We are looking for an individual with excellent analytical skills to get to grips with the DSU stable, identifying gaps, future trends and avenues for recruitment. We also welcome individuals who have a proven track record of implementing change to improve performance, relentlessly focussed on outcomes that serve the public.
