Go for it, but what you've described about your skipper - don't fall into those bad habits! Also, if you want to be a busy bobby you can, if you want to do nothing, you can.

I think the answer lies with the fact that I dont enjoy going out with PCs. I always avoid it as I feel their jobs are more boring and time consuming.
On the other hand the PC role is secure and I have more options in every situation and I can progress to other avenues from that role. I really envy people like you who have made the choice and is happy with it.
Last my force recruited I ignored it and last month my neighboring force recruited and I again did not even consider applying. I am just really happy with my lot. If only....if only I could be 100% sure the role of PCSO was secure :slsos:

Go for it because you will only regret not doing it. Your force might be just boosting numbers for this year only

I was like you until i went for it and now i am happy as larry. At the moment i am doing OST, which has woke me up to the fact that i am going to be dealing with the **** of today. It's also nice to know that i am now able to deal with the incident from the start to the end, which used to get to me when i was a PCSO.

Gualsa- I don't think any job is 100% secure. The 'job for life' is nothing more than a has-been. All it would take is one mistake, one wrong word spoken, or to be at the wrong place at the wrong time... As far as job security goes, i think that the role of PCSO is as secure as it can be. The Met, for example, have lost many PCSOs who became PCs- and the consequential shortfall of PCSOs has resulted in a new recruitment drive for new PCSOs. I'd say we can be 95% sure that our role will still be around 10 years from now.

Congratulations... or should I say commiserations? I've heard of many PCSOs becoming PCs only to regret it later... But good luck, and hope you'll be satisfied with the new role...

Don't worry i am not one of them officers. I have already had words with a few and reminded them of where they first started as a PCSO. They also know that i did it for 5 years before i crossed the line.

I have 2 weeks left and a weeks leave to take before i am out pounding the streets again

Indeed. Many of us are quite content to carry on making a difference as PCSOs.
