Day in the life of a PCSO
As a ward Police Community Support Officer that covers Blean, Harbledown and Rough Common Parish, my primary role is to be a highly visible and approachable representative for Kent Police within the local community. I have responsibility for 3 wards so I try to achieve this aim in all of those wards.
Each working day I will review any crime and anti-social behaviour that has been reported on my wards and I will aim to visit appropriate victims and be pro-active in providing reassurance and taking positive action on any issues that are happening or emerging.
I work in partnership with many other agencies to be as effective as possible in dealing with issues and these include housing providers, KCC wardens, social services, mental health workers, youth workers, the Local Authority, and Trading Standards.
This also gives me the opportunity to create valuable contacts within the community and gather valuable intelligence from them.
The demands in policing are very high and as part of the Kent Police organisation I also have to assist with dealing with appropriate calls, assisting with local enquiries regarding crime including CCTV and house to house enquiries. I have to help when needed with preservation of a crime scene, helping with road closure at traffic collisions, serving witness summons, and dealing with various other tasks.
Unfortunately this can take me away from my daily ward business on occasions but I will always try to be out and about on my wards as much as possible.
For non-urgent matters call Kent Police on 101
