Sussex Police PCSO recruitment

Sussex Police is on the look-out for new Police Community Support Officers in their latest recruitment drive.

Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) recruitment will launch on Monday 16 March until midnight on Monday 23 March.

From dealing with anti-social behaviour to providing reassurance and helping resolve community challenges, PCSOs play a critical and visible role in preventing harm.

We’re looking for great communicators, those who are calm, confident, compassionate and can listen carefully, think through challenges, find solutions and have the diplomacy, resourcefulness and desire to keep our communities safe.

Owing to investment of the 2019 precept rise, by the end of March 2020, we will have a net increase of 100 PCSOs, bringing us to 296 full-time equivalent PCSOs.

Assistant Chief Constable Julia Chapman said: “I am delighted to announce that PCSO recruitment is now open. If you would like to make a difference, value listening to others and can help communities find solutions under pressure to keep them safe and feeling safe then I would encourage you to apply to be a PCSO. It is a vital, challenging and varied role which is also incredibly rewarding as you help the people who need us most.I look forward to welcoming you to the Sussex Police family and making the best of your skills and life experience.”

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said: “If you want to become the boots on the ground which boost public confidence, gather intelligence and help take down criminals in your community, then this is the job for you.”

If you can listen carefully, think through challenges, find solutions and have the diplomacy, resourcefulness and desire to keep our community safe, then this could be the career for you.
