Re: Sir Ian Blair what next

I think its a good idea to double up in trouble areas. Everyone no matter how much tax they pay deserves protection.

Commit your resources to where they are most needed.

Re: Thug PC Keeps Job

looked unprovoked to me too to my mind he should have been charged and then sacked? I know plenty of officers who have been sacked. The system isn't soft at all. As he didn't get sacked I'm sure it was the right verdict, you don't know the whole story. I wouldn't ever take the Sun newspaper as gosp...

Re: Cambridgeshire PCSO turns up the HEAT!

We were considering a similar thing last winter by borrowing heat source camera equipment and sweeping each street on a quiet Monday night. But it goes back to needing RIPA authority, sometimes civil liberties go to far. :slead: We have already found dozens on our borough but it would be nice to ide...

Re: BlackBerrys

I've had mine a week and I have to say it's an excellent bit of kit. I stopped a group the other night, typed their names in and hit send. A minute later I had their PNC, intel and voters records on screen. Spoke to them and let them go. 2 Minutes after that I'd submitted an intel report along with...

Re: BlackBerrys

This is a popular line churned out by lazy officers who want everything done for them. I apologise if you do not fit into that description, but I manage to use MDT PNC to carry out all of my checks on people who I stop and I quite often work on my own in some very unpleasant boroughs. Its also a po...

Re: BlackBerrys

As police officers on our borough wedon't want them. We will be shortly trialling them on our borough for the Met. However their functions are extremley limited (not intergratted with our software), don't cut down on forms, add extra weight and represent a serious officer safety concerns while doing...

Re: PCSO's Shown As Being Useful On TV

Glad channel 5 are showing PCSO's are useful and not mocking them like that 'NEW BLUES' programme did the other week. Its a pity most media show PCSO's as a waste of space instead of shwoing what we are good at and how helpful we can be when we use the powers we have. Sorry but that New Blues seeme...

Re: Comment on Kent Police report?

Reality check please. The truth is pcsos are more likely cause more work for patrols rather than free them up from my experience How? Are we committing, crime, ASB, starting fights or are we on the street and are stopped by the public who report a crime.... and we save them a phone call to the poli...

Re: Federation Calls for PCSOs to be disbanded

The truth of the matter will be decided when central funding for PCSOs drys up and the Chief Constable choses what balance to spend their resources on.

Re: Where's the role going?

In Northumbria and possibly other forces, the NBM's have a "bonus" which is known as a Special Priority Payment (SPP). This was devised years ago when the concept of Neighbourhood policing was introduced. No-one wanted to do the job so SPP was introduced to attract people to the role, the longer yo...

Re: Safety Transport teams

because like SNT's they are in the right locations they save core teams a lot of wasted time dealing with minor incidents that would tie up police officers who are over streeched I would say from experience that they are more likely to generate more work for core teams just like SNT/ TFL PCSOs do a...
