There were 77 full-time equivalent police community support officers (PCSOs) working in Cheshire on 30 September 2006; which are the latest available data.

Cheshire police has an overall strength target of 237 PCSOs for April 2007 and in support of this will receive funding totalling £3.2 million in 2006-07, increasing to £4.5 million in 2007-08. It is a matter for the chief constable and the Police Authority to take decisions on the number of PCSOs and other staff that the force should recruit in 2007-08 and beyond.
