Now more than ever, start a career like no other in London's Met

Want to join our team of world-renowned Detectives? To be part of a police service working hard to keep London safe for everyone. A job that makes a difference every day, supporting victims of crime when they need your help the most and bringing offenders to justice? If you do – join the Met, as a Detective Constable.

As a Detective you will deal with serious and complex investigations, uncovering the truth and analysing evidence on cases. This could range from undertaking search warrants and making arrests to pushing a case through the courts to get the right outcome for the victim and their family, all whilst making the communities we serve safer. If you thrive on problem solving; have good communication skills; love teamwork; and want to make a difference, then this is the job for you.  

It is a varied, challenging and hugely rewarding career with excellent pay and benefits, stability and opportunities for promotion like no other employer can offer. You could find yourself working in cybercrime, safeguarding a child or vulnerable adult or, as you move up the ranks, leading on the investigations. Ultimately, it will be up to you to choose your path and the only limit will be your ambition.
