CHESHIRE Police is planning to recruit staff with community support officers needed.


Application for the paid positions opens on December 9.


It has not been disclosed how many jobs are available.


there are currently 200 CSOs in Cheshire Police who work on community issues like anti-social behaviour.


They do not have arrest powers but support regular officers.


John Dwyer, Police and Crime Commisioner for Cheshire, said: "I think that people now understand the difference between Police Community Support Officers and police officers and it is their ability to spend time out and about on the streets engaging with the community and solving local problems that has a huge impact on people′s feelings of safety"


"I encourage people from all of Cheshire′s diverse communities to apply for the role."


Anyone interested can take part in an online Q&A session between 7 and 8pm today, Thursday.


Go to cheshire.police.uk/jobs/pcsos.aspx for more information, and to apply.

Easy -the PCSOs have little power and are policing on the cheap....while real Police Officers are preventing elected representatives having their say in council meetings.

Do I detect a tad of discontent about the police swoop on the town hall to remove people committing heinous crimes, Nick ?

Good job John Dwyer is a Conservative politician otherwise he'd be condemning this shift away from the police to PCSOs rather than supporting it. But hey presto. A quick call from Central Office and he is told what to say about local policing regardless of what is needed or wanted.
