Norfolk PCSO Cuts
Published on by Polly Smith
All UNISON members should support this.
The chief constable of Norfolk police has announced recently a plan to disband the police community support officers (PCSOs).
PCSOs were first introduced in 2002 and it could mean that 150 staff will lose their jobs (mainly UNISON members).
All our jobs are under threat so please support this request.
Norfolk Constabulary is planning to axe all 150 police community support officers (PCSOs) in the county to save money.
UNISON believes that these plans must be stopped and is organising a day of action in Norwich on Saturday 2 December.
The aim is to send a strong message to Norwich North Conservative MP and assistant government whip Chloe Smith that the priority of her government should be cutting crime, not cutting PCSOs who play a vital role in keeping our communities safe.
Join us on 2 December
We are asking UNISON members from across the country to come to Norwich on Saturday 2 December to help deliver leaflets to every home in the Norwich North constituency.
