Join us at an event to find out more



Interested in becoming a Police Community Support Officer for Hertfordshire Constabulary?In October, Hertfordshire Constabulary will be opening recruitment for Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).


PCSOs provide a visible, reassuring presence in communities across the county and have proven invaluable at forging strong links with partner agencies and local residents.  They conduct high visibility foot patrols to prevent public disorder and nuisance, and respond to requests for assistance from the public to deal with anti-social behaviour.


It’s a role that calls for strong powers of observation, communication, judgement and problem-solving, plus a fair degree of personal maturity.  Applicants will need to be driven by the idea of making a real difference to the lives of those within your community.


Hertfordshire Constabulary will be holding an event on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 for potential applicants to gain an insight into this challenging role. 


The event takes place at Police Headquarters in Stanborough Road, Welwyn Garden City, starting at 7pm and finishing at 8.30pm. The event is open to anyone who is interested in becoming a PCSO.  Several PCSOs will be on hand to chat to visitors about their role, as will the recruitment team. 


We are keen to reflect our diverse community with Hertfordshire, so that we may have a greater understanding and are better able to meet its needs. With this in mind, we are seeking to increase the number of PCSOs from ethnic and cultural backgrounds that are currently under-represented within the Constabulary.
