North West Regional Organised Crime Unit (NWROCU) and Regional Collaborations
Location: Warrington, Cheshire
Salary: £105,600 - £119,220 per annum
As the lead force, Merseyside Police is seeking to recruit an experienced Assistant Chief Constable to provide exceptional leadership for the NWROCU and regional collaborations, positively impacting on the communities we serve.
The mission of the NWROCU is simple – to identify, disrupt and dismantle organised crime groups causing the most harm to the North West. We do this by working with our partners to gather intelligence, cracking the most serious and organised crime networks, and then seizing the assets of the criminals involved.
Established in 2009, the unit is a collaboration between the six North West Police Forces in Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and North Wales. It’s made up of officers and staff from across the region who offer specialist skills and additional resources. We provide a range of specialist capabilities to tackle serious and organised crime that crosses borders in the region – these include Threat Assessment, Intelligence, Asset Recovery, and Cyber Crime. Further information about the work of the NWROCU can be found here.
