Who best to tell you what it's like to be a PCSO than some of our current PCSOs themselves?

Bijou - Mum, Paraglider and PCSO

Bijou

I’m Bijou. Sometimes we choose our work and other times the work chooses us. I'm a very optimistic and outgoing person who likes to help others. As a PCSO I have the opportunity to solve problems and help people in difficult situations. I find working with children especially rewarding- these days’ children are often confused and lacking positive role models.

Two years ago I took climbing lessons and became hooked. This gives my 12 year old daughter, my partner and I something to do together that we all enjoy.

Jordan - Sociable, Energetic and PCSO

Jordan

I’m Jordan and I joined the police as a PCSO in March 2010.

I really enjoy my job because there is so much variety on a day to day basis and you never know what you may stumble upon or what job you may get sent to.

Helping people at a time when they are at their lowest or when they need some help and advice is why I joined the police. I would sum up my job as “one big problem solving puzzle”. One minute I could be sorting a neighbour dispute or helping tackle a long term anti-social behaviour issue that affects the whole community. On the other hand I could be in a local school giving a talk to children or chatting to parents.
