PCSOs spend the first 8 weeks of their employment in a classroom based environment where they will gain the skills and knowledge required to be effective members of the Neighbourhood Policing Team.

From your first day, the training team will expect you to take personal responsibility for your learning; and expect to be pushed out of your comfort zone. Cleveland Police are looking to shape your development so expect to be challenged.
You will experience a range of learning opportunities in both a classroom setting and practical based exercises. This will cover aspects of legislation, policies and procedures.
