Police Community Support Officers in Northumbria Police are due to be issued with a new uniform.

From January 3 PCSOs across the force will be seen wearing blue shirts – replacing the current black shirts they wear.

The change will mean Northumbria Police’s PCSOs uniform will be in line with the PCSO national uniform.

Chief Superintendent Ged Noble said: "We’re really proud of our police community support officers , they are a vital part of neighbourhood policing and play a huge role in building links with the local community.

"The new uniform, which is only a change in the colour of their shirt, will see them adopt the national uniform. Their role will not change and they will continue to offer the same great service."
