Cuffs and batons, rumours abound

Any other 'PCSO issues' that do not fit in to the other forums. Recruitment of PCSOs, day to day PCSO duties, questions about law, joining the regular police, becoming a special, anything else remotely PCSO orientated!!

Cuffs and batons, rumours abound

I've heard rumours that some forces, namely Kent and Derbyshire have begun issuing the above to PCSOs. I know it's probably a load of tosh, but was just curious. Any takers?

If it was just handcuffs I might believe it, but a baton as well, I would be amazed if that happened.

I can't see a force who don't even give their officers the basic power of detaining would be issuing them with cuffs and batons!
