Derby police team hold event at Intu as PCSO applications close this weekend
Main article content
Members of our Derby City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team will be at Intu, Derby today (Thursday, June 13) to talk about the opportunity to join the policing family and become a PCSO.
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) work in our Safer Neighbourhood teams across the county and are uniformed civilians with a set of specialised powers. Their main role is to patrol on foot, ensuring a highly visible presence on the streets. They work with other organisations (such as the local councils and housing associations) to tackle issues of local concern, focusing on lower-level crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour and working on projects to address longer-term crime problems.
This PCSO recruitment is part of our ‘Safer Together’ campaign which marks new investment in the force that will see 120 new posts created working to improve police presence in neighbourhoods and bolster investigations.
PCSO recruitment is still open but closes this weekend at 11.55pm on Sunday, June 16.
If you would like to come and talk to the team about the role and how you can apply, come along to the Intu this afternoon, they will be there between 1pm and 5pm.
