Re: The End Is Nigh

Yes - I read this on the front page of the Essex 'Chronicle'. Not only PCSOs post going, but the whole of HQ at Springfield, and numerous police stations being closed and sold off, including the new one at Gt Dunmow, which was only built a few years ago.(sheer idiocy) :slwo: So, where will the new ...

Re: The End Is Nigh

From what I've heard the 190 odd are being offered redeployment to other roles which is the usual token gesture offering some crap jobs on low pay. The other 60 will stay and will lose their shift allowances and will be tied to local authorities. The rest will get the small redundancy package. This ...

The End Is Nigh

So it appears the role of PCSO'S is reaching the final stage as Essex Police are the latest Police Service to announce major reductions of their PCSO force..191 posts are to go out of 250. The remainder will no doubt be on borrowed time. I note lots of forces are announcing similar cuts to PCSO's at...

Re: PCSO Pay Cuts on Route 2015/2016

Well it would certainly make the PCSO to PC change look more attractive. There a number of very good PCSOs who have been pestered several times by supervision to apply, but the pay cut just doesnt make it attractive. Your not wrong lots of my colleagues including myself are jumping ship to one forc...

Re: PCSO Pay Cuts on Route 2015/2016

So be aware people something's going on and I fear a drop of around £4000-£5000 in your yearly pay by 2016. If they actually dropped peoples' pay by that amount they would be sued to oblivion for constructive dismissal. I doubt they could legally get away with it. Not when our force has about 12 pr...

PCSO Pay Cuts on Route 2015/2016

Firstly can I point out that the following is my personal opinion based on the trickle of information received by through my force and a unison rep. Two forces are currently undertaking a joint review by paying a private company to review ALL Police Staff's current pay and conditions. The proposals ...

Re: PCSO threatened with axe.

Not to worry being a PCSO is a 'non-confrontational role', good job they had their Radio and PNB/pen to hand.

Re: Is Neighbourhood Policing a Luxury we Cannot Afford?

Yes as there's no ward PC's to take ownership of ASB, Partnership working, Targeting hotspots and repeat offenders. Now the PC's process prisoners, deal with case files and only get out on Fri/Sat night late turns. The PCSO's take the diary appointments and help with the enquires for their respectiv...

Re: Is Neighbourhood Policing a Luxury we Cannot Afford?

It comes down to money and there is none, they'll try and recruit for PC's internally for a while then it's tough on those who choose not to. Who in there right minds at the top would use money on PCSO's when they can have PC's? The writing is on the wall I'm afraid. Already in the borough in which...

If her hat was on straight I might take her seriously. I guess it's one way to get yourself targeted by the local youths :)

Re: Job related fitness test.

In D&C it was originally all frontline Officers were to undergo annual fitness tests, however Unison has now told members that Police Staff are under different employment rules to that of SWORN Staff and as such Police Staff will not undergo Fitness Tests. So in D&C PCSO's will not have to have Ann...

Re: PCSOs' sickness has TRIPLED!! Did YOU go sick ?

I can't stand seeing PCSO's waddling around with oversized trousers on ( fat trousers) whilst gobbling off telling other people the crack. Why is it the fat female PCSO's all seem to be little Hitlers/fussy bullies who lie and make stuff up?? They also all seem to have Mental Heath issues. The fat ...
