史密斯先生告訴英國廣播公司肯特電台，在未來幾年 "重大財政節約 "的情況下，警察將尋找 "每一種途徑 "來節省開支。
史密斯先生承諾，他將盡一切努力為 "每一個受影響的人 "在組織內提供一個有用的選擇，"如果他們想要的話"。
The Acting Chief Constable for Kent has defended plans to cut the number of police community support officers (PCSOs) by two thirds.
Tim Smith said he did not want to see anyone leave unnecessarily but it was the "reality" of managing their budget.
Mr Smith told BBC Radio Kent the force would look at "every single avenue" to save money amid "significant financial savings" over the next few years.
Mr Smith promised to do everything he could to give "every single one of those individuals affected" a useful alternative within the organisation "if they want it."
He said the changes were an opportunity to improve the neighbourhood policing model, would put more officers into uniforms and create more visible roles in communities.
He said: "We must not lose sight of the people involved in this process, our valued colleagues who will lose their livelihoods in the middle of a cost-of-living crisis.
