Hertfordshire’s new PCSOs are on the beat

 Published on: 9th August 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Tracking down shoplifters, searching for missing people and talking crime prevention with residents – it’s all in a day’s work for Hertfordshire Constabulary’s newest Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).

Sixteen new recruits graduated a fortnight ago, welcomed to the force by Hertfordshire Chief Constable Charlie Hall and Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, David Lloyd.

After seven weeks’ training, the PCSOs have been assigned to Safer Neighbourhood Teams across the county and have started working with the community to improve the quality of life for residents and make their area safer, by proactively tackling crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB).

Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, David Lloyd said: “I see strong value in our continued investment in our PCSOs because they have a vital role in intelligence gathering and they get to know the communities in our towns and villages.

“They are a key part of neighbourhood policing in Hertfordshire and I know anyone joining the team will find the role exciting and varied.”

The role of a PCSO is paid and there are opportunities for people who wish to work part-time or flexible hours.  The role involves shift work, including working some weekends and evenings to 11pm.
