Drive - Interview with PCSO Francesca Wells


Today on Drive I was joined by local PCSO Francesca Wells. She came in to talk about her role as a PCSO, what makes PCSOs different from a police officer or a special constable, what a typical day as a PCSO involves and advice to people who are considering joining the police force.

PCSO Wells is also involved in the Community Speedwatch Team and there is also steps your community can take if you're concerned about speeding in your area. Free training and equipment is available for organisations to begin a Community Speedwatch group - all you need to give is time.

Following training, residents are armed with speed guns to target problem areas and if motorist are caught speeding, they receive a cautionary letter similar to that handed out by the PCSOs.

For more information on how to start a Speedwatch programme, contact your local police officers or call Adam Pipe on 0300 333 4444
