The first locally sponsored PCSO in Northamptonshire began duties in Daventry this week as part of a scheme developed by the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner which allows communities to pay for a PCSO that will be dedicated to their area.

Created to empower communities and further joint working initiatives between local partners and the police, the ‘Sponsor a PCSO programme’ runs in 12-month cycles and will see up to 12 new sponsored PCSOs operating across the county in areas where local organisations, such as parish councils and business districts, have opted to cover the full cost of the role.
