Wiltshire Police are recruiting new Police Community Support Officers.

Applications are now open and will close on Sunday 8th February at 5pm. 

Chief Constable, Pat Geenty, said: ''I am delighted that we are in a position to recruit additional Police Community Support Officers. PCSOs provide essential support to police officers and make a real difference to local communities.'' 

Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson, said: ''Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are an important part of the police family, being a proactive, visible link between the force and local neighbourhoods alongside their neighbourhood police officer colleagues. 

''We are also particularly encouraging applications from minority ethnic communities, as they are presently under-represented within Wiltshire Police.'' 

Applications are welcomed from both current Wiltshire Police staff and from members of the public. 

For more information, please visit either the Wiltshire Police website, or through the force Facebook and Twitter sites.

If you have any further questions, please email resourcing@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk or call the dedicated recruitment phone line on 01380 861121 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm). 

Please do not call 101 for information about the recruitment process.
