CHESHIRE Police is recruiting new PCSOs in Warrington.

Applications are now open for the police community support officer post, which offers a salary of just over £20,000.

No specific qualifications are required, with ‘emphasis held on the experience, skills and knowledge of the candidate’.

Applicants will need to be able to work flexible shifts and ‘show resilience when dealing with difficult and challenging situations’.

The job listing states: “Working as part of the beat management team, PCSOs inspire confidence on the streets in Warrington – supporting people who live and work in the neighbourhood – and they perform one of the most demanding roles in modern day policing.

“With a population of over 200,000, Warrington is home to a busy local policing unit.

“Serving a diverse population with a popular day and nighttime economy, there is an opportunity to make a positive difference and use your initiative to build relationships with business stakeholders, local communities and partners.

“You can show pride in serving your community and being the face of the community, with the area you work in being your area and your responsibility.

“With an aim to make Cheshire even safer, our PCSOs support front-line policing.

“They do not have the power of arrest, but they do tackle anti-social behaviour and deal with minor offences.

“Our PCSOs are the eyes and ears of the community, whilst also getting to know the community they serve.”

The closing date for applications is Sunday, January 19.
