Can you help to get our blessed forums Rolling again?

Serving Officers

welcome to National-PCSOs We need serving officers who would enjoy helping others on the forums to solve their immediate problems/ queries/ worries, can you help? If you are a serving officer and wish to see these forums up and running again then simply reply to a number of the latest posts with your opinion/ view/ advice. Of course you can also PM falkor to say hello, your input would be greatly appreciated. Serving officers can start a PCSO Diary and these topics are hugely enjoyed by other members of the site. Consider replying with your comments to other officers' diary entries.

Candidates

If you are not yet a serving officer, then you can still help the site by posting your queries and even reply to news media posts with your ideas/ comments/ opinion. Generation of discussion is what this site is all about really but on the other hand, we do have an enormous Archives section which holds relevant articles going back years. These are very interesting to browse if you have any spare time!

Former Officers

If you are a former Officer then your help on the site would definitely be appreciated. There is nothing like genuine experience to trump training or even qualifications, please don't hesitate to join the site, maybe have a line in your signature "Former Officer" or just in your profile somewhere, your experience of handling the issues that matter would be a treasured resource for sure.
