West Midlands Police – Want to see You!

“West Midlands Police have contacted me” said Cllr Phil Bateman, ” They want to recruit from within our community. If you are interested please read on, this is what they contacted me with!”

You’ve told us you want to hear from us, why not join us and be part of our presence in your community?

We’re opening our doors again, from Saturday (12 August), to recruit the next generation of Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) to serve the region’s diverse communities.

It is the second time in a year that WMP have advertised for new PCSOs, with the last round of recruitment, in January, attracting over 1,000 applications for 80 posts. The successful candidates are due to begin their training from September 2017 and will be patrolling the streets by October 2017.

The new recruits will be based across the West Midlands and successful candidates will be at the heart of neighbourhood policing, becoming the friendly face of the force throughout the region.

PCSOs provide a visible police presence within their local communities by conducting patrols to help prevent crime, to keep people safe from harm and to increase trust and confidence in West Midlands Police.

Applicants do not need specific formal qualifications to apply for the role, however anyone keen to consider a career as a PCSO should have a good standard of education and an ability to communicate effectively both in writing and verbally.

Applications are welcome from people aged 18 or over.

Recruitment closes to all applicants on 25 August.
