Spray and baton....to help potential attackers think twice, but tazers, no.
A ghost buster gun would be cool tho! As would an MP5. But just as contraversial.

I'd love a ghostbuster gun! think of the cool effects, you shoot it and everyone just stops and watches the pretty colours!
I think cuffs should be the limit, don't want to be a robocop.

Nope don't fancy Tasers, think the standard PPE is adequate. Even our PC's don't carry them, so can't imagine PCSO's with them :?

I think some people are getting a bit carried away bless 'em :oops:

We may get more powers in the future, but I think they will be in line with 'the run of the mill' frontline PC and not specialist sections.

So Tasers, Dog Units, Hellicoptors, Hovercrafts, Spaceships and Quad Bikes are definatley out of the question :lol:

I think the ghostbuster gun is a fab idea tho.

Ok, sorry for bringing up the ghostbusters bit.....but the A-Team van, thats the best idea of all.
Ahem...Tazers. I can never see it happening.I just got official word that SUSSEX will NOT be giving ANY new powers at this time.
