Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs)

Sussex Police are currently closed to applications for the role of Police Community Support Officer. Please keep checking this page for further updates.

Click the window below to view a short video about being a PCSO in Sussex.

WorkWithUsPCSOs


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.

PCSOs are the face of local policing; patrolling on foot or by bicycle, they fulfil a number of important roles - from dealing with low-level nuisance and anti-social behaviour, to forging links with the public and businesses. Providing reliable support to frontline police, PCSOs help to reduce crime and reduce the fear of crime. They 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.

PCSOs are trusted to build links with the community, so it's essential that they have excellent communication skills and a caring, considerate approach to dealing with others. Confident in challenging situations, PCSOs are team players with proven initiative and problem solving skills.
