Are you able to post a pic of you guys and gals in your North Wales PCSO and Police uniforms? :D I've heard so much about the unifor...

I know what you mean Jed, and I'm always happy to help where I can. However the public seem really shocked when we can't answer their parking queries as the hat certainly does ressemble that of a Parking Attendant!! :roll: I know one thing though............. I'm a very good walking map :lol:

It also doens't look very good when you're asked 'parking queries' all day and we're unable to answer them as we literaly don't know the answer. How good does that look on the Police Services part? Even simple queries like disabled parking and loading bays, we're constantly getting asked these quest...

I would like blue sequins on mine, but it 'aint' gonna happen :wink: :lol: Abdi, that's what I've heard that the silver and blue (more a pale grey then silver!!!!!!!!) is not visible and constitues a health & safety issue, that is why the chequered band may be considered for us.......... Don't shoot...

It's not good when you get someone like this, it kind of rubs off on everyone else, especially if it's coming from one of your Line Managers :roll:

Doesn't matter where you work you always get the positive and negative people working together. But how very boring if we were all the same huh? :roll:

I don't call them negative, I call them boring moaners :twisted:

You can up the anti using Home Office Approved strikes. You don't have to use Martial Arts they teach us so many techniques. I've given some knee strikes and chest slaps before, each were justified and if I had to punch someone then i would, but I'd make sure the impact factors were there and it was...

Got to disagree with you there!!! It all depends on your insp / Sarg / NBM etc. My Sarg was not at all CSO friendly especially at the beggining, in other words didn't give us a chance to do anything except to wander the streets. We tried to engage with communities, being invited to various activiti...

Well we have been told we are here to stay so i guess at the moment I have nothing to worry about... I hope. I'm on a permanant contract so are most of us, so i guess it will cost them to make us redundant. They would most probably try to offer us other positions within the Police Service if push c...

Look at the pale silver and blue hat bands in the dark and then look at a chequered hat band in the dark. The chequered one is much more visible and think this is the main concern at the moment.
