Re: PCSO's attending Red/Grade 1 Jobs

It does work in our favour sometimes, as it did for me this afternoon. Standing in town centre at one of my bus stop, when an I-grade call came out to an assault on a member of staff of a pub, by a female MoP, who was standing outside the pub right now!! I was 40 seconds run away, so I put myself up...

Re: MET Pscos - DPS presentation....

TCB, you are verging on delusional. The allegations that you are making here are incredulous. As Sgt87 says, it would have to be a very serious matter which was being investigated to justify that level of covert surveillance, and I doubt very much that any gaffer would admit that it was actually go...

Re: MET Pscos - DPS presentation....

TCB, I just don't believe that is true. I don't either. The level of authority for that means that there would need to be something very very serious going on. The collateral intrusion from a bug would make it prohibitive IMHO. There was lots of stuff going on at other sites and on SNT Wards, a who...

Re: MET Pscos - DPS presentation....

The last one was my my nick. I didn't know him personally as it happened before I started, but it was mis-reported somewhat in the press. I would be interested in the take the DPS have on it. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8326133.stm He also told lies.... My office is believed to be bugged by the DPS,...

Re: Herts PCSO convicted of leaking stories to the press

Falk, I think that anyone found guilty of misconduct in a public office and attempting to pervert the course of justice deserves a jail sentence. I don't think you can compare these offences with any others, and I think there is no excuse for such behaviour. You're absolutely right, but a custodial...

I think you know what he meant!!!

How can you search for alcohol that is in open sight, if it's in open sight, then you don't need to search for it!!!

I couldn't seriously do my job if I didn't have the power to detain.

Re: 26th March - Are You Coming?

In and ideal world, I believe that Police, Healthcare and Education should have as much money as is necessary, within reason. Cuts to these core services is scandalous when there is so much money that is wasted and given to overseas causes. Charity starts at home as far as I am concerned. Unfortunat...

Re: Here we GO !! Federation vs PCSO

My wife gets the bus to work with a nurse from the local University Hospital. She is Polish, and only works 2 nights a week. I believe she is an agency nurse so presumably gets paid more. She told why wife that this week was her last week of working before the end of the financial year as she was ap...

Re: The way ahead, mini-pcsos....

I like the idea, and it teaches the kids responsibility in the real world, rather than the theoretical world at school, but ScaredMet does have a point, but I think in the right situation it would work really well.

Re: Herts PCSO convicted of leaking stories to the press

absolutely typical, robbers given community orders, burglars sent to YOTs, but a PCSO who spills the beans is going to get some bird!!!! Unbelievable.

Re: emergency workers refused to pull a man from boating lak

I understand that, but how did they know he was already dead, if he was floating out in a lake??? One of the first things they teach you in training "Never assume!!!" and hopefuly the 2rd is not to go jumping into lakes and the 3rd should be not to take any notice of the Daily Hate Mail. Maybe not ...

Re: Have you got the power of Search??

OK, Im resurrecting this topic because I heard yesterday that PCSOs were to be given the power to search and I just wonder how that would work as clearly under PACE we cant do that? Its not a power any CC can give out so it would have to be changed on a national level no? I think it would be handy ...
