This chapter introduces police community support officers (PCSOs), who have been rolled out across the English and Welsh police forces through Home Office initiatives. It outlines the development, introduction, and character of this policing initiative and describes how the PCSOs interact with police, staff, and residents of low-income neighbourhoods. The chapter examines the establishment of various PCSO schemes across a range of deprived neighbourhoods, and links these policing initiatives to processes of urban regeneration.

Keywords:   PCSOs, Home Office, policing initiative, community police, low-income neighbourhoods, urban regeneration, England, Wales
