PCSO terms of contract

Whilst attending the 2 day residential Crime Fighters Course we had a lecture from the head of Cheshire Safer Neighbourhoods Police Force and learned that the minimum contract term for Safer Neighbourhood officers in that area and other areas is 2 years to allow the officers to learn about the area.

Apparently in London officers only have 1 year to sign up to and that leads to constantly having to explain what is going on in the area to new recruits who barely have enough time to learn about the area.

Louise Casey has promised to look into minimum contracts for officers in London at a minimum contract term of 2 years also, despite protests that it would be difficult to recruit enough Safer Neighbourhoods Police Officers for these posts.
