National PCSO Uniform !!

Whatever happened to the much talked about PCSO national uniform, Blue Solid Hat Band, Blue Shirt's ??
from looking at many of the Police forces around the country, not many have the Solid Blue Hat Bands, in fact many still have Chequred Hat Bands.
The Blue Shirts i have seen seem to be different shades of blue in each force.

I thought the Home Office said ALL Police Forces would introduce the National PCSO Uniform from December 2012 !!

Our local ACPO thinks our blue and white chequered hat bands are more "police-looking" than the plain blue ones, so they have said we can retain them until the bitter end (whenever that will be). Why talk austerity then waste thousands on unnecessary uniform standardisation?

Our blue shirts have stopped being issued and they've gone back to black. Not sure why. The inability to make a decision and stick to it I guess :slcool:

We are now going back to shirt and tie but with a twist; the wicking shirt will stay but :slhi: have a cotton collar attached to it. I cannot wait to iron those buggers!

No. The National Uniform hasn't been implemented yet.

We've got half the force wearing black wicking tops and the half wearing blue, because the powers that be couldnt decide on one date for everyone to change at the same time. They thought it would be better to let the change happen over 18months! So now we all look different!

Not wholesale in D&C, they were only issued for a short time. All my shirts are black. Some of my colleagues have a mix due to replacements and the newbies have just blue! Not ideal...

Minx,
Having just spent 2 day's at Muddlemoor !!
I attended in my Black Shirt, so did 3 or 4 colleagues, we had no comment from most at HQ, other than a woman from from Stores who took it upon herself to have a right go "Screaming at us PCSO's should be in blue shirts" !!
I soon put her in her place !! telling her that in actual fact PCSO's could still wear black until they wear out and are replaced with blue shirts through Stores.
An Officer from the Training Dept, did say that the ACC is looking for uniformity soon and expects that all PCSO's will be wearing Blue by 2014 !!!! :slsic:

Why did the store person get so emotional, what has it really got to do with them whether a PCSO wear blue or black ?
