PCSO Shelley Richards

Your Local PCSO covers Bisley, Oakridge, Eastcombe, Bussage, Chalford and Thrupp. 

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) provide a vital link between the communities they serve and the police service. They don’t have the same powers as regular officers or their Special Constabulary colleagues, but still carry a lot of responsibility.

They conduct high-visibility patrols, acting as a crime deterrent and helping to inspire public confidence, while also offering support to officers at crime scenes and large events.

Their role also includes dealing with minor offences, providing crime prevention advice and helping to tackle anti-social behaviour.
