More Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) could be operating in Newtown over the next few months.

Dyfed Powys Police has begun a recruitment campaign to take on more of the PCSO’s in the force with some based in the area.

The force said it was inviting applications from across the area, but applicants could state where they preferred to be based.

The closing date for completed applications is midnight on 27, September.

“Vacancies are anticipated across the force area over the next 12 months, but on application you will be given the option to provide a preference of either Powys, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire or Pembrokeshire,” said a police spokesperson.

PCSOs are uniformed police staff who complement and support regular police officers. Their role provides a visible and accessible uniformed presence, aimed at improving the quality of life in the community and offers greater public assurance.

The role of PCSO is unique, designed purely to tackle anti-social behaviour and local issues affecting the quality of life. 

The force added: “PCSOs are not replacement police officers but there to address many of the tasks that do not require the experience or powers held by police officers but which often take officers away from more appropriate duties.”
