Kent’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Ann Barnes, is to announce her intention to boost police visibility by seeking to fund recruitment of nearly 100 more posts. Mrs Barnes will make the announcement alongside Chief Constable Ian Learmonth at Kent Police College Lecture Theatre this morning.
The additional posts will consist of 60 Police Community Support Officers, 20 Police Constables and 18 Custody Attendants. Most of these posts could be introduced countywide by the 30th June this year. This move would equate to six uniformed officers/PCSOs on the beat per district.
