Negative love, but wish we did at times. We have the same pockets of nuisance youths that pop up in different areas at different times. By the time we get to them they've legged it to another area and are causing mayhem. If we had a car of some sort then we could beat them to that area and sort them out................. you know 'dead leg' them and beat them to a pulp, that sort of thing :idea: only joking :lol: :lol:

I've heard that some Essex PCSOs have little Smart Cars............. how sweet........ BEEP BEEP :D

If you want to drive about in a car... JOIN THE REGS.... it is NOT your job as a pcso to be driving around ... the public are sick of seeing police driving about ... the whole idea of the role which some people are forgetting is that you should be on foot

I do have a driving permit in my role as a PCSO. There are 15 PCSOs in my area and usually at least 10 on shift at any time. Therefore we sometimes double crew the mobile cctv unit and attend youth disorder calls. This still leaves 8 PCSOs on foot patrol and there are strict rules stating that the van can only be double crewed as the powers that be think that the whole team would just sit in the van. These are the types of jobs that the police in our area place on delay and then attend hours later to update "area search with a negative result." If we attend in our vehicle we can deal with the problem straight away and actually engage with the youths and take positive action. We also try to use our airwave sets to update callers and let them know that we have attended or are attending especially if they have stated that they do not wish to be seen. This is definately within our remit as it is addressing a quality of life issue that would usually be ignored. I see it as an extension of our role.

I think in some cases having transport to get to those nuisance youth areas that are far away can only be good as you can spend more time in those trouble areas! As long as you get out and patrol your beat on foot i cant see the problem!.. 8)

I Agree..... Stu

Not every area has it's OWN p.c.s.o and a car of some sort seems to be a good idea to sort out the wonderful Chav's.... lol

As long as pcso's get out and walk... Even if it is to the local Pub Whoops i mean... Youth CluB .......

I sometimes wish we had a small car that we could use. Our problems are usually in a close proximity of each other, but now and again the problem becomes widespread and we just can't physically get around quick enough to deal with it. By the time we get to the nuisance youths, they have made off and are causing mayhem somewhere else.......................very frustrating :twisted:

Would be grateful for one PCSO vehicle, but we are not authorised to drive ANY of the Police vehicles :cry:

Only the pedal cycles :cl:

I work in the Town Centre too, but it's quite a big town and as I said earlier our darling nuisance youths pop up all over the place. Would be great to have a vehicle on a Friday and Saturday night when we do lates so we can get to all the Roller Skating Venues, Bowling and other Leisure Centres where they hang out, and these are all quite far apart from each other, but still classed as the Town Centre.
