The Swindon Police force announce that recruitment for Police Community Support Officers, for training next year, is officially open.

The Swindon force are looking for PCSOs to be trained during January 2023 and beyond, for posts across Swindon and Wiltshire. 
The force say the role of Police Community Support Officer is a vital community engagement role, working alongside police officers as members of the Community Policing Teams.
