The fitness level for the Police are very high. You also have to pass psychological testing etc. Some one with a diagnosed mental health problem wouldn't necessarily be refused but would find it harder. The waiting list for recruitment in most forces is quite long so they are very choosy about who they pick. The fitness levels are the same for the PCSOs. Even volunteers with my local force have to reach a certain fitness level.

Desk based support staff are always in need and they do play an important role. You do need to have a minimum amount of GCSEs for any civilian role though.

Having said that there are lots of jobs that offer opportunities to put back into the community.
