Avon and Somerset Constabulary is looking for people to join its ranks as Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).

The force wants to recruit PCSOs to work in the heart of communities by patrolling neighbourhoods, reassuring people, and working to solve problems.

The force’s Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “Since PCSOs 
were introduced in 2002, they have made a real impact. At a time 
where the services required of the police have changed and grown, PCSOs have continued 
to provide a visible presence on the streets, working with local 
people, businesses and partners.

“We want to encourage people from all backgrounds in towns and villages across our force area, to apply. Our communities are becoming more diverse and for us to be truly effective, we need to represent all communities, whatever their faith, sexuality, ethnicity or disability.”

Apply via www.avonandsomersetpolice.co.uk until 5pm on June 8.
