Re: Police numbers to slump amid budget pressures

Re: rebrand police community support officers in South Yorks

I look in amusement when there is no vehicle keys left on the board and the officers left decide to do some paperwork rather than walk out. One of my kins thought that police helmets where now obsolete!

Re: Cleveland Police privatisation

Have a look at the link below to an article in the local press. Through my own efforts rather than our unison reps who also happen to be PCSO's, I have written confirmation that the 200 Cleveland PCSO's will have a minmum of 10 years of no redundancies. Could be a way of other forces saving money an...

Cleveland Police privatisation

You may be aware that here in Cleveland our civilian staff are moving over to a private company. The 200 PCSO's remain employed by Cleveland Police and have the same guarantee of no compulsory redundancies for 10 years.

Re: You are the Home office YOU decide

I dont think the government can afford to pay a top scale PC 35K a year plus extra SPP for detecting a minimum of 2 crimes a month, one lock up a week. Then of course there is the sometimes created overtime. The days of milk and honey are over and the police are no different to anyone else!

Re: Why not make all PCSO into PSOs..........

I think you will find that the Fed are against anyone on the street, working for the police and who is not a fully warranted officer.

The reason I ask is that I was originaly issued with sliders that had embroided POLICE COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICER and metal numbers.

BTP PCSO's

Could anyone tell me if BTP PCSO's are issued with an ID wallet and if so is it the same design has issued to regular officers. Or is it a wallet with the dreaded blue badge inside?
