Working for us as a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO)
We're recruiting for PCSOs now
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 awareness sessions
The Force’s Human Resources department have organised a number of sessions to help potential applicants with their applications.
The sessions are open to all. Serving 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.
- Thursday 27 July 2017 - 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm
- Friday 28 July 2017 - 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm
Location: Ground Floor Committee Room at Loxley House, Nottingham City Council, Station Street, NG2 3NG.
How to book
Please confirm your attendance at an awareness event on one of the dates mentioned above by e-mailing your name and date of attendance to email@example.com. If possible, please bring a copy of your draft answers to the three application competency based questions (CBQs) so you can be fully supported at the session.
