North Yorkshire Police has launched a recruitment campaign for police, community support officers (PCSOs) with posts available in Whitby.

There are already 179 PCSOs across the force area working alongside police officers but North Yorkshire Police is hoping to increase this to the full complement of 183 as well as maintaining numbers as PCSOs progress their careers or leave the force.

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said: “PCSOs make a real difference to local people and are significant in making our area one of the safest places to live in England. “This recruitment drive also demonstrates that despite challenging times, I am fully committed to a strong and resilient frontline policing force”

The closing date for applications is Monday 31 December at 4pm.
