10 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) paraded in front of friends and
family at Nottinghamshire Police Headquarters on Friday 1 December 2017 at their
passing out ceremony.

The event completes Cohort Three's six week training programme and later this
month the new officers will be deployed across the county.

The ceremony was
hosted by Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Barber.

She said: "I'd like to welcome my new colleagues to this brilliant
organisation and congratulate them on completing their training.

"This is
just the start of their policing career and can lead to a fantastic role
throughout their working lives.

"Working for the police is a difficult job, but hugely rewarding. I'd like
like to wish them all the very best and hope they enjoy it from day
one."

Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I’m
delighted to welcome another cohort to the force.

"We will continue to
see a substantial increase in police numbers and I know that people in
Nottinghamshire will welcome this approach.”

PCSO Theo Denton said: "I was a Special Constable previously, so it's
something I've always been looking to get into. Now getting paid to do something
I'm passionate about is very excited. Luckily I saw the opportunity on the
website and got my foot through the door. I can't wait."

PCSO Abigail Green said: "I really enjoyed the training, it was very varied,
very active and interesting. Each day we learnt a lot and I can't wait to get
started. It's very exciting.

"I've always been interested working for the police, so spotted it on the
website and applied. I never thought I would get this far, so it just proves you
have to go for it."

PC and PCSO recruitment is currently closed, but police cadet recruitment
opened in November.
