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.
