More Police Community Support Officers are to be recruited locally, Dyfed Powys Police have revealed.

The force is to hold an application workshop in Newtown next week to allow people to find out more about the role.

"Becoming a PCSO is a challenging and rewarding career, but it is not just any job. The officers appointed will work directly with and make a very positive contribution to the communities they work in," said a police spokesperson.

"Policing with the community is at the very centre of everything we do as a police service and as such, it is vital that we are representative of our communities.

"Dyfed-Powys Police is therefore particularly interested in recruiting more people from our diverse communities in order to be fully representative of the communities we serve."

As part of the focused campaign to recruit, a series of application workshops will take place. The sessions will provide information and encouragement to interested applicants to guide them through the recruitment and selection process.

"These workshops are aimed at promoting awareness of the role of a PCSO, how to write a successful application form and encouraging applications from under-represented groups," added the spokesperson.

Included in the sessions will be a presentation from an assessor of PCSO applications around completing the application form and information from the force Positive Action Officer.

Also present will be PCSOs who will be able to talk about their role.

The workshop takes place at The Elephant and Castle Hotel at 6pm until 8pm on 10 August.

Further information about the PCSO Application Workshops can be obtained from Nia Rees on 01267 226119 or email equalityanddiversity@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk

Applications open on the 15th August 2018.
