A laugh, it's payday...... :twisted:
They obviously didn't get the piccies from the PCSO's themselves, at least get onto the PCC. After all if Wills can do it ( and he's a far more important money snapper for them ) then they can do it themselves.
But that would give the paper more encouragement, or just tell them to

Why would the IPCC deal with a complaint about a newspaper?

BrianB, initially on reading your post, I disagreed with you posting these names & pictures here but on reflection it's in the public domain anyway so what's the difference?

Your comment "..makes a change from kicking the cops..." is interesting - surely this IS kicking the cops? PC or PCSO, people see us as "the police" and mud slung at PCSO colleagues = mud coming our way, to the service as a whole?

I certainly don't walk my beat a few steps back from my PCSO partner saying "Well you lot were crap but fortunately it was nothing to do with us police!".
One thing is definately true - being under this kind of intense negative witch hunt focus is a truly horrible experience that changes everything. I have been the subject of a wholly groundless (and ultimately exonerated) enquiry for months, which nonetheless doesn't even compare in any way to what these two young colleagues are living through right now - and my little episode made me question EVERYTHING, to the point of considering resigning and walking away.

In the end the truth prevailed and I'm still here. Let's spare a thought for these two, because where they are today, anyone of us (but for grace of God), could easily be next in the spotlight tomorrow. And THAT is when you doscover who your REAL friends & colleagues are.

I'm afraid he's right

The newspaper cannot be sued but that doesn't make it right :oops:

And why would the Independent Police Complaints Commission investigate a newspaper story?

Not everyone has had the privilege (I have and it wasn’t nice, though the truth set me free :) ) of having involvement with the IPCC. So there may be some confusion as to what they do.

IPCC tend to investigate complaints regarding the police i.e. complaints about Police Officers, PCSOs etc.

As far as I can tell, it's only a few PCs who get this training.

Jimmy, I agree they certainly would not be interested in the newspapers that have identified the CSOs.
