Dyfed-Powys Police recruiting new Police Community Support Officers

policeDYFED-POWYS POLICE are currently recruiting Police Community Support Officers (PCSO). The application process is now open and the deadline for applying is midnight on August 21st.

There are vacancies available in Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Powys. You can submit your application on the Dyfed-Powys Police website.

PCSOs are uniformed police staff who work to complement and support regular police officers. Their role provides a visible and accessible uniformed presence, aimed at improving the quality of life in the community and offers greater public assurance.

They have a different role from their police officer colleagues but can be designated a range of police powers by the Chief Constable which can have an immediate impact on dealing with problems.

The role of PCSO is unique, designed purely to tackle anti-social behaviour and local issues affecting the quality of life. PCSOs are not replacement police officers but there to address many of the tasks that do not require the experience or powers held by police officers but which often take officers away from more appropriate duties.
