Warwickshire Police Community Support Officers

Full time and part time vacancies available

Vacancies throughout Warwickshire: specifically Rugby and Nuneaton

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) inspire confidence on the streets of Warwickshire. They strive to make our communities safer and stronger yet perform one of the most demanding roles in the modern police force.  PCSOs can't make arrests and they don’t carry handcuffs or a baton. They rely on their ability to understand and communicate with some of the most challenging people in some of the most difficult situations.

No two days are ever the same; working with a diverse group of colleagues; people get to know you, talk to you and share their concerns with you.

This is a rolling recruitment campaign.  A member of the recruitment team will be in contact if we require any additional information to support your application.

After we have shortlisted your application you will then invited to complete a Values and Behaviours Assessment, and a Situational Judgment Test.  You can do these in any order and at your own convenience over a 7 day period. 

Please note that you can only complete these assessments with one police force and once registered with a police force and either not completing the assessment, or being unsuccessful, you will be unable to reapply for 3 months to any police force.

Your next stage will be an invite to interview with our current Police community support officers members and other representatives of the force.

If you are successful at these selection stages, we will then commence pre-employment checks including vetting, medical and employment references.   

For any further queries, please contact the recruitment team at recruitmentsupport@warwickshire.police.uk


The main purpose of the usual role of a PCSO is to work within identified communities to enhance safer neighbourhoods and provide reassurance in order to reduce both crime and the fear of crime.


All post holders are expected to know, understand and act within the ethics and values of the Police Service. These nationally recognised behaviours and values are set out in the Competency and Values Framework (CVF).

The CVF has six competencies that are clustered into three groups:

  • Resolute, compassionate and committed
  • Inclusive, enabling and visionary leadership
  • Intelligent, creative and informed policing

Under each competency are three levels that show what behaviours will look like in practice.

This role requires the post holder to be operating at or working towards Level 1 of the CVF.


The post holder must hold a current, full driving licence.

You should expect to join Warwickshire Police as a Police Community Support Officer in October 2024


Recruitment and selection support for under-represented groups

We want our organisation to be as diverse as the community it serves.

We welcome applicants from all sections of the community and are currently under-represented in Warwickshire Police by females, minority ethnicity and LGBT communities, and individuals with disabilities.  If you hold any of these protected characteristics,  please contact our Positive Action Officer by emailing positiveaction@warwickshire.police.uk who will be happy to discuss the role and your suitability for this post, answer any questions you may have, support you with your application and/or provide you with interview guidance.
