Re: Major changes to ASB legislation go live today

I would be happy to have all the powers under the new ASB legislation and no more money for it. Those tools will be so bloody useful in my day to day duties and the thought of the unions to which i do understand why they argue this for our benefit but the risk for us not to have it just annoys me.

Re: Major changes to ASB legislation go live today

Hi powder monkey , We have been granted the dispersal power which is great, just reading your post you mention that you had given someone a Sec 5 PND, so i take it your force has given you that power. Now that will be a great tool to have as we don't in D&C but hopefully one day. Regarding the rest ...

Re: doing a witness statement from a victim

It's crazy why PCSO's are not allowed to do witness statements even 5 part statements. You don't have to even have police powers. It cant be the reason we are "PCSO's" as there were civi investigators that were employed to do just that. It makes sense that we as PCSO's conduct witnesses statements e...

Although I would be more than happy to do it as practice makes perfect. but alas we are not allowed to as its...

Re: Recruitment is back on

Although I do like doing the job however there is no career progression or any chance to earn more money. There are a lot of positives but if the two aspects i have mentioned are important to you than think carefully as i would imagine the engineer job would have a lot more to offer.

Re: shocking moment a PCSO appears to exceed his powers

Its just the daily hate mail stirring things up again for PCSO's. Its just another chance for having a go at us and making it appear that we are Gung Ho. You are dammed if you do and dammed if you don't.
