New Recruitment Drive For Cleveland Police Community Support Officers


300 PCSO Applicants are being sought by Cleveland Police.

Cleveland Police is now recruiting Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). PCSOs were last recruited in February 2010 but from today (Friday 12 June), over 18s can apply over the next fortnight (until 11.55pm on 26 June 2015), or until 300 applications have been received.

Successful applicants will then be invited to attend an assessment centre in July where they will have an interview, complete written tasks, take part in interactive role play exercises and have their basic numeracy and literacy skills assessed.

Once in their role, officers could be deployed anywhere in the force area according to demand.  They will work alongside regular police officers and their day to day work means they are a visible point of contact for residents.  Other tasks range from taking part in high visibility reassurance patrols, to working with children and young people, conducting door to door enquiries in major crimes, and attending community meetings.

Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger said: “It is great news that we are in the position of being able to recruit more PCSOs.  These officers work in partnership with many different policing teams and with partner organisations and they are invaluable in breaking down any barriers and creating links with people of all ages and all backgrounds.”

Deputy Chief Constable Iain Spittal added: “This is an opportunity for those who have a real desire to serve and a belief in public service. We are looking for individuals who are committed to serving the community, have an understanding of what communities need and a strong commitment to making a difference.  The role of a PCSO is demanding but hugely rewarding and provides lots of opportunities to work with partners to strengthen communities.”
