MET PCSO NUMBERS

Post by typecastboy » Mon Apr 04, 2011 6:39 pm

Here is a quote from the Met's April Budget update.

PCSO Changes

The current (2010/11) PCSO establishment is 4,639. This will reduce in 2011/12 to 3,825, a decrease of 814 posts.

A further reduction will take place in 2012/13 where numbers will decrease by a further 100 posts and a consequent change in the establishment to 3,725.

Dunno, we have one on our team, one on other hub team, 4 on two core teams. Most SNTs have one or two I believe.

So in essence, there is going to be a lot of disappointed CSOs applying to be a PC if only 814 are leaving, when in reality a lot more will want to go.

If you mean the recruitment, there are 1,000 places, but I reckon 4K at least of these PCSOs will be appying if the people I know are a good representation. Some of these spaces will be filled by Specials too, so there will be very very many disappointed people.

Yeah I think that too. Vast majority will still be applying. Hopefully everyone applying will get a day 1 to prove themselves, and even if they don't get in this year, still have their hat in the mix for next year.
