Re: PCSO's Non-Confrontational !! WHAT A JOKE !!

Please vote in survey regarding handcuff. I think it is time to consider the issuing of cuffs to all pcso,s. The public will mo longer except us standing back and watching criminals whilst waiting for a police officer to arrive. Too many pcso,s are being attacked. Or assaulted whilst trying to do t...

Re: Handcuffs

It has been discussed before, many times I think, but for what it's worth, If I was in a force/borough/team where an inspector or Sergeant disciplined me for detaining/stopping fights etc, I would be leaving the job or the force/borough/team. I am fully supported by line management in getting hands...

Re: Kent PCC announces 60 new PCSO's on the beat by June

It's blatantly obvious that this recruitment is so Kent get their agreed budget for 2013-2014, why? Because there been a mass exodus of staff and officers recently, no full quota of staff no full budget, you get a new budget based on current staffing levels..no brainer end of. That doesnt sound lik...

Re: CKP COURSE

whenever they advertise for police constables they have a queue 5 miles long within 5 seconds, they can even lower the pay to below that of any average PCSO pay and STILL get a massive result The Wiltshire Police website crashed after receiving 282,000 hits for an advert for officer recruitment 24 ...

Re: CKP COURSE

What a load of total rubbish.... Like the "pre recruitment" courses that used to run at my local college for wannabe cops who need help in how to fill in an application form for heavens sakes. When I joined the job I was given no advance knowledge of what to expect at interview apart from the fitnes...

Re: CKP COURSE

Looks like the police service is going the same way as the private security industry. Sorry, not wishing to cause an argument but what the police service needs is to recruit suitably able and keen men and women to carry out the role of good old fashioned thief takers. All we seem to be promoting wit...

There have been cases of yobs shining them at aircraft around Heathrow for heavens sakes..... Disgusting....

Re: Would you do your job for nothing?

What do you guys think of us being allowed to be Specials as well? Not sure if i would work. It could be ok if we could decided which shifts we did as which. I would imagine that wouldn't happen though. It wouldn't work really. Choosing which shift you worked wouldn't help either. A PCSOs powers ar...

Terrible plan adding to an already dire situation. Most weekends in my area, we have a ratio of specials to regular PCs of 2:1 now. That can only lead to trouble IMHO.
And does it?
