Re: Pc application

There are, according to the Met Intranet, 150 specials that have passed their IPS. They were all out on Friday night, trying to tick boxes. Specials are in no way more experienced than a PCSO. All the ones except 2 that I know, are shockingly bad.

Re: Pc application

How many Met PCSOs are there? Someone said about 3,500, going by my STT team, other SNT's that I've spoken to, and people on here, I reckon out of 3,500, about 3,300 will be applying. There are only 1,000 spaces, many of which will be filled by Specials, so there are going to be a lot of disappointe...

Sorry he's lost his job, but he has been there for 36 years, about time he let someone else have a go.

Re: MORE POWERS & KIT FOR PCSOs

As much as this was originally an April fools, part of it is actually true, there is a trial happening now or very soon giving PCSOs the power of search for certain things in one borough. This came from my borough commander and a union rep That'll be alcohol and tobacco then!! That'll do for starte...

Give a rest you two, at least you've moved on to slag off someone else, but it's very childish.

Re: Pc application

Some of the 1,000 will come from Specials. A special must have past their single patrol status to be able to apply. I witnessed yet another display of how pointless Specials are tonight on the streets, but that's another story that I know you lot don't like to hear. I would praise them if I had any ...

MORE POWERS & KIT FOR PCSOs

We were called into a meeting this morning and told that all SNT and STT PCSOs are going to be issued with the power of search, handcuffs and CS Gas. No Asp, as CS although classed as a Firearm is considered to be the lesser of force as it is a temporary thing, rather than asping someone!! Training ...

Re: Pc application

I would like to know where it only says 1000 places If you click on the link on the main Intranet home page at the top middle, you can scroll down and gives you a blow by blow account of what the process and the training will be. Found out today, out of about 30 PCSOs on my STT, about 27 have appli...

Re: Mission creep....

When you have a body of people who are only accountable to the council or the SIS then you're asking for trouble. Police powers should only be exercised by police employees. I agree, in my personal experience I know of doormen who should be accountable but become immune to licence conditions, the p...

I'm not being funny this is an ex police officer and he can't handle comments at him on a forum but thinks he can throw jabs here and there? lol...
