Hello, I made the step to PC with Northumbria in 2006 after 3 years as a PCSO. I still check in on the site once a week or so. There are loads of PCSOs or CSOs as they are now called in Northumbria coming through as student constables. I know that on a recent intake at Durham there were 16 out of 22 ex police staff (CSOs, DOs, CIOs) on the course. As I quite often say to the lads and lasses (well lass) on my shift. Its the way forward!
