Police Community Support
Grade SPA7: £18,525 - £20,220 + Shift
PCSOs are the heart of neighbourhood policing teams and work
closely with local authorities, the business community and
Neighbourhood Watch to ensure local issues are tackled effectively
and knowledge and best practice is shared.
We encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds who
want to make a difference in the communities they serve. It is
important that PCSOs reflect the diversity of our local communities
so that Sussex Police can continue to improve its policing
Joining one of the Force's neighbourhood teams, the new PCSOs
will be the face of local policing. Patrolling on foot or by
bicycle, they'll fulfil a number of important roles - from dealing
with low-level nuisance and antisocial behaviour, to forging links
with the public and businesses. Providing reliable support to
frontline police, they'll help to reduce crime and reduce the fear
of crime. We'll train you fully. You'll have the authority to
remove vehicles and issue fixed penalty tickets, and to conduct
other duties that do not require the powers of a police officer,
such as directing traffic and guarding crime scenes.
To be equal to the responsibility, you'll need
to demonstrate that you share our values. Committed to public
service and open to change, you'll act with courage and compassion,
taking pride in doing your bit to champion justice.
We'll trust you to build links with the
community, so it's essential that you have excellent communication
skills and a caring, considerate approach to dealing with others.
Confident in challenging situations, you are a team player with
proven initiative and problem solving skills.
