Dedicated PCSOs

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are similar to regular police officers – however their work is focused on remaining on the beat, rather than processing prisoners and investigating crime.

PCSOs were introduced to supplement the role of Constables, who – given their wide array of powers – can often be taken away from their core role of providing a visible presence on the streets, and being the front-face of policing.

PCSOs are able to stay within communities to keep-up that presence.

As part of our joint working and empowering communities initiatives, you can fund a PCSO who will be dedicated to your area.
