Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) recruitment has opened today (Tuesday 10 September 2019).

The force is looking to recruit 20 officers initially.  

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.

Nottinghamshire Police's Chief Constable Craig Guildford said: "We are encouraging people to apply, if you want to make a difference in a uniform role within your local community. It's a fantastic role and a unique role, which helps our frontline officers police across the county.

"The PCSOs do a great job here at Nottinghamshire Police, they are the heart of community policing and are an important part of the policing family. It's a fantastic chance to join the force at a very exciting time."

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, said: People are at the core of any successful organisation and at Nottinghamshire Police we’re committed to recruiting the very best talent to join our ranks and make the county an even safer place to live.

"PCSOs are an important part of our local policing teams and I know how much their reassuring presence on our streets means to local residents."

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2019.
