Putting on the uniform of Nottinghamshire Police for the first time is a proud moment for any new PCSO.
Before you commence training, you will be required to attend our clothing stores for your uniform fitting.
So what does that uniform include? The standard uniform issue for PCSOs is very much the same as police officers, so it includes the black all-climate shirt, uniform trousers, hat, fleece, blouson and hi-vis jackets, slash-resistant gloves and over-trousers.
Like their warranted colleagues, PCSOs also have body-armour, a torch, an equipment belt, a First Aid pouch and a radio. Then of course, every PCSO has their badge, and the blue-and-white band that marks you out as a PCSO.
