Community Support (PCSO)

Police Community Support Officer Recruitment

The recruitment for Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) is now Closed. 

PCSOs form an integral part of Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) across the Force. The primary role of a PCSO in Dorset is to provide a regular and effective presence to their local community and to prioritise their demands and resources to ensure effective, efficient and proportionate delivery of a neighbourhood policing service.  They need to manage the delicate balance of limited resources against the prioritisation of threat, risk and harm to our communities and prevent, detect and reduce low-level problems within their community, whilst also providing high levels of engagement with them.

You can hear from some of our current PCSOs about their experiences in the Force here
