Working for us as a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO)
PCSO recruitment opens again soon, please check back later for more information.
As a PCSO you will be able to develop your skills in dealing with people and will gain job satisfaction from making a difference in your community.
Every day you will see how your role makes a positive contribution to local policing, solving issues that affect quality of life for the community and making your community stronger and safer.
Working alongside regular police officers, you will have a key role in making local neighbourhoods safer and through your presence help the community feel safer.
You might need to step in to calm an argument in the street, or you could be running a meeting for residents who are worried about the redevelopment of land.
You could be the first member of the police service that deals with an individual causing nuisance or behaving in an anti-social way - talking to them, building a rapport and influencing their behaviour.
PCSO support sessions

The sessions are open to all. PCSOs will be present to talk about their role and information will be delivered about how to apply and about how to receive further support.

- Saturday 17 June 10:30am – 12:30pm and then an open session to bring applications from 1:30pm – 3pm
- Monday 19 June 6pm – 8pm
