MBO+ | Bonaire | 36 hours | Vacancy number P&O2024_03_005 | Closing date: 24 April 2024

Are you quality-oriented, do you like a challenge, and do you want to grow in a new organisation? Are you someone who works well with internal and external partners and has experience in basic policing and investigation? Then come strengthen the KPCN info desk.

Your duties will include work preparation, project preparation, and analysis; tasks that are becoming increasingly central within the force. Does this appeal to you? Then read on.

What are you going to do?

As a Senior Information Investigator, you deliver intelligence products and you simultaneously coordinate several files in different cases. As part of work preparation, you draw up plans of approach and you perform intelligence work yourself. You are jointly responsible for the division of work within the info desk. You are a recognisable face within the police force and for external partners.

Besides the focus on local and cross-border crime, the info desk has a number of special files that require special attention and knowledge, e.g. money laundering, human trafficking, cybercrime, and Interpol. You build and maintain networks for the purpose of a joint approach to intelligence activities and you agree on implementation arrangements. You consult (police) systems and open sources, like social media. You provide insight into trends and developments within the region and you deliver concrete information reports for the benefit of enforcement and investigation. This includes signal documents, summary investigative documents, and possibly the start of a criminal investigation.
