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!!

:slhuh: Police Scotland stopped and searched thousands of children!! :slna:
By Marc Ellison Data journalist, BBC Scotland
Police Scotland stopped and searched thousands of children between the ages of eight and 12 last year, according to data obtained by BBC Scotland.

Officers carried out 2,912 searches on children in that age group between April and December 2013.

The figures were revealed ahead of the Scottish Police Authority publishing a review of the stop and search tactic.

Police Scotland said the tactic had contributed to a reduction in violence and anti-social behaviour

The force said a total of 640,699 searches were carried out across the 12 months to the end of March.

The figure is three times higher than the 222,315 searches conducted by London's Metropolitan force, which polices a population greater than that of Scotland.
