SW ROCU Careers

At the South West Regional Organised Crime Unit (SW ROCU), we work with local forces and national partners to target and disrupt the criminals posing the greatest risk to residents and businesses in our region.

You don’t need years of experience to join us, we will invest in you.

It’s an exciting time to join us. We are strengthening our numbers and we continually invest in both our people and new technology, so that as serious and organised crime evolves, so too do our skills and capabilities.

Transferee opportunities

If you are a police officer, you can transfer to any one of our five regional forces to join us:

  • Avon and Somerset Police
  • Devon and Cornwall Police
  • Dorset Police
  • Gloucestershire Constabulary
  • Wiltshire Police

Transfers are not open to officers already working for a South West force or the MOD.
