Police Community Support Officers

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) have been part of the police force in England and Wales since 2002. London and Manchester currently have the most PCSOs employed in their areas, whilst Norfolk has had none at all since April 2018.

PCSOs have fewer powers than warranted police officers and their duties vary from region to region. These duties range from offering crime prevention advice to dealing with minor offences.
