Sussex Police are recruiting community support officers
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are being recruited in Sussex and people interested in applying have until midnight on Monday, April 9, to do so.
A police press release says:
“The PCSOs are equipped with additional skills and powers to ensure they are able to tackle the issues that affect the most vulnerable, working in teams across districts rather than a specific neighbourhood, working where they are most needed – with local teams making assessments about where communities have the greatest concerns.”
Assistant Chief Constable Nick May says the PCSO role in Prevention Teams is challenging and vital to the Sussex Police model of local policing.
He said: “PCSOs work with officers to keep our communities’ safe, so the public should be reassured that we are very much still working in local communities across Sussex. If you apply you can expect to deal with issues such as hate crime, anti-social behaviour or helping vulnerable people in difficult situations.”
Sussex Police Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne added: “PCSOs take a proactive part in keeping our community safe, supporting crime prevention and police investigations. If you think you can tackle the issues that matter most to local people, the role of PCSO could be tailor made for you.”
