The unit identifies candidates who may be unsuitable to work with children or vulnerable adults as well as assisting in the process of barring certain individuals from being able to work with vulnerable groups.
The day-to-day duties will involve you interrogating and disiminating information that has been collated from the local intelligence and crime systems, as well as custody and the Police National Computer for which full training will be provided. You will be required to verify and process enhanced disclosure applications and barring requests recieved from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
