The vacancies attached in Appendix 6 should be seen in the context of an establishment projected at the beginning of the financial year (now almost 11 months ago). Subsequently, the new policing model which is being consulted on in the Police and Crime Plan has been developed. That model sees greater use of PCs and reduced numbers of PCSOs and anticipates that many current PCSOs will have the opportunity to become PCs. In the light of this, boroughs have not been recruiting to fill all of the PCSO vacancies which arise.
