Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Exactly, i see this happening now, its a vicious cycle and one the govt either does not see or chooses not to see, either way the only people to suffer are the public. The great decision maker is cash ... and only cash, what happens to the great unwashed is something the govt will deal with at the t...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Agree to what you say about what incidents are given a crime number.... I know of jobs that were 100% crimes and passed the threshold but were .... not ! Often its time, the officers simply don't have it and I know that this is a self fulfilling prophecy, as less crimes being recorded mean's less of...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

You work past midnight ! We have never done so, we have to finish at 00.00hrs at the latest, i thought all PCSO's did this ? Agree ref the volunteers, they can not be relied upon and this was evident when a number of them did not turn up for this Sunday's rememberance services which we had to police...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

I too can not understand why anyone would want to be a volunteer pcso, i was a special pc before joining but that has a certain kudos that a pcso simply does not have, i can honestly not see how they will get any decent numbers applying, but time will tell. In the meantime i guess its simply a wait ...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Our force is still having a review of our role.... due in Jan i think. There have been a number of stories coming out about how volunteer PCSO's will be used by forces in the future and how ' partner agencies ' will aslo assist with the work, i see these as other volunteer or charitable teams who ta...

That is a good one, will have to use that :sltee:

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

I take your point about the powers but to be homest i think our role and the cuts have gone too far for that now, also the FED would never allow it, they have hated us from day one and i can see them having a party should this role go totally in most forces. I too have met some very lazy bobbies, th...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

I work in a large force and we have pcso's (single crewed) in the town centres, at weekends all the time, yes they get abuse (verbal) but if that is their beat then that's where they go. The role we have is a no win, the public (those who know what we can do and have a criminal record) often take ze...

I wonder if there'll be a blockbuster film in a few years where PCSO's are recreated from the DNA left on a half eaten sausage roll? :slhuh:

Along with a number of latte's and small cupcakes :slarr:

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Agree, i do see neighbourhood as a dying area of policing i am afraid, as i have said before, great to have when times are good but when the hammer comes down its back to basics. Also i posted last that Merseyside police had said they were cutting 80% of their PCSO's.......well a few days ago the lo...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

I do agree, i too have noticed that some of the calls (grade 2 and even some 1's), are simply not being responed too in the kind of time frames i would of seen even a year or so ago..... a lot of the response officers i speak with (well those new in service) are telling me that the police is now a j...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Just seen that the met has suspeneded their decison on the cull of the pcso's as the public are very angry at the idea :slbx: that is excellent news, who would have thought that the public would get behind us when in 2002 they were at best uninterested in us.

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

Your right, most employment agencies are estate agents for human beings, just there to get you into any job so they can snap up their very high fee.... most are a total waste of time, some of the smaller (not very well known on the high street) can be ok, but you have to search them out. Onto the su...

Re: Hundreds of PCSOs to lose their jobs in West Mids

I tell anyone who will listen the truth as to why we can't get to jobs anymore. I'm not covering for the government, fuck them. If we don't get to a job, it's because we don't have any staff. The sooner people realise, the better. I can agree with you on this and over the past 6-12 months i have no...
