From North Yorkshire Police:
We're boosting Neighbourhood Policing
North Yorkshire Police has begun a major recruitment campaign to bring more than 50 Police Community Support Officers into the Force over the next 12 months, which should make a significant difference to communities.
The campaign is part of a wider recruitment plan to boost the number of frontline police working across North Yorkshire’s communities – as pledged by the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, when she raised the Precept earlier this year.
Police Community Support Officers (or PCSOs) are paid employees who work alongside warranted Police Officers to keep communities safe. They take part in neighbourhood patrols and help to tackle anti-social behaviour and other issues that affect quallity of life for local people. They also provide crime prevention advice and support investigations.
The application window is open now, until 20 May 2019.
Applicants must be over 18 years of age. No particular qualifications are required, but we will be looking for level-headed people with a real commitment to public service, who are good communicators, team-players and problem-solvers.
