Re: PCSO / Ambulance First Responder

No I don't get paid any extra, I do it unofficially alongside my day to day PCSO duties, this is done with permission of my Inspector, there is a Tri-Service PCSO in the same Police Force, where he is PCSO-FIRE-AMBULANCE, however because that is officially being trialled he gets an extra £10,000 per...

PCSO / Ambulance First Responder

I am a PCSO and also an Ambulance First Responder while at work, I carry an Airwave Ambulance Pager and I am called to Emergency Ambulance calls within 3 to 4 miles of wherever I may be on my Patch, I really enjoy doing this and believe it should be looked at to see if this could be developed furthe...

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

Just wait for it I can see within 12 months most Police Forces will be looking to disestablish the role of the PCSO, and the Unions are going to be powerless, my fellow PCSO's we need to be prepared for the end of the PCSO role in the UK, so any PCSO's out there now is the time to start looking for ...

Re: D&C Police Cutting 180 PCSO's

Ninja Monk, I'm hoping I will not have to apply for my job, I'm hoping my Union (Unison) will show some balls and stop D&C going down that road of putting existing PCSOs through the process of applying for jobs we are already doing !! As you say why recruit when more cuts are coming!! Have you seen ...

Re: D&C Police Cutting 180 PCSO's

I can probably guess what they intend to do. I would imagine they will recruit more PCSOs bringing the total up to 360, then in around 12 months time they will decide further cuts are required, as all other Police Staff roles are and have been cut, they will then say right we will cut the PCSOs by h...

Re: D&C Police Cutting 180 PCSO's

From the last update on cuts, they have said it will be around 40 Sworn Staff, that will now not be recruited, and I believe 800 Police Staff will go over the next 4years, however they have now said PCSOs will now not be cut and the numbers will remain at 360. Does the right hand know what the left ...

Re: What’s it like to be a PCSO??

What's it like to be a PCSO ? Very Worried, with talk of job cuts in PCSO numbers due to the cut to Police Funding from Central Goverment, the worry of not knowing if I will have a job in a few months, morale in the Police is the lowest for decades, and no one is doing nothing about that, it is just...

Re: D&C Police Cutting 180 PCSO's

It's early days the Force has released a statement saying jobs are safe for 2015, however from April 2016 it does not look good, the thing I find odd they are recruiting around another 30 PCSOs soon with two intakes, how can they even think of recruiting then in 12 months start making half the workf...

Re: is anti climb paint legal? can you use it at home?

My understanding of this Anti Climb Paint is that you need to display Warning Signs, Warning Anyone who might try to climb onto your property that you have taken measures to prevent persons from climbing on your property ! A bit like CCTV warning signs are displayed when you have CCTV on your proper...

Re: E petition to Scrap Police & Crime Commissioners

£85,000 for just PCC is not a lot of extra Officers I agree, but when you think the PCC also receives in the region of £40,000 in expenses, then you also have a deputy PCC on £75,000 plus expenses, then Treasurers, Chief Executives, HR staff, PR staff, Admin Staff, Vehicles, Offices etc... The amoun...

Re: E petition to Scrap Police & Crime Commissioners

"I have no personal gripes with any particular Police and Crime Commissioners.

I also believe that even if you believe in the purpose of the role, it would be im...
