Prior to their Passing Out ceremony, which took place on Friday 10 March 2017, the officers completed a comprehensive ten-week programme of training which included a three day community placement to prepare for their new careers.

As well as learning legislation and safety techniques, the course and placement gave the officers a valuable insight local issues and the chance to start building relationships with their local communities.

The PCSOs will be based at Northallerton, Harrogate, York, Scarborough, Stokesley, Leyburn, Richmond and Sherburn-in-Elmet.
