I dunno, I think the yellow/ black tie is quite eye catching :wink:

They aren't officially Scottish PCSOs - they are in fact litter wardens there.

Glasgow City Council put 44 Litter on Patrol in the City Centre yesterday as part of a ''Zero Tolerance'' on litter.

IMO theres now more chance of getting caught litttering than shoplifting or mugging as theres never 44 PC's in the city centre at once :roll:

They have been issued body armour which just goes to show how bad the City has become.

Funny that as I have been told by numerous employers not to wear my Body Armour as it makes the place ''look bad'' and '' it's not that dangerous''. I have even had the Police frown upon it :shock: Its not these people that are at risk !

If Litter Wardens need to be issued with PPE then why doesn't anyone recognize the dangers of being a Security Officer and/or Door Supervisor ?

Litter.... Is that all they can do... I think their day will be a little dull.
Are they working for the Police or the council? Its just seems a bit strange, love the hi vis ninja oufit!

Definetly working for the council.
If you go to the Scotland today news website you can see a video of them.
I tried to post the link but I was doing it wrong and got a spam warning. I don't know how you do it on this forum its not what I'm use to.
