Clearly there is still no such thing as 'standard powers'.

I heared some areas of England were experimenting with FPNs for shoplifting, is this still going on and if so, are PCSOs in those areas given the power to FPN for shoplifting?

PCSOs cannot be designated the power to issue a PND for shop theft, so no there shouldn't be any issuing them.

Speaking of powers, has anyone had a change to their powers as a result of the amendments to the ASB Act? I'm still waiting to hear if our Chief Con will give us the dispersal power.

I'm jealous! Hopefully that'll encourage other forces to follow suit.

Could someone describe the power precisely and the training given? Anyone used it yet?
Power of arrest for PCSOs for 'as and when' - s24a PACE & common law (i.e. BoP) using s3 CLA 1967

I'm a PCSO, I will WATCH you get your head kicked in (as per force policy)

Can issue a ticket for wasting police time! That's interesting. Might use that next time someone asks for directions. :wink: I jest of course. :)

Wasting police time? I can think of a few colleagues who should get a ticket for that!

"Sells or attempts to sell alcohol to a person who is drunk".

You could ticket every pub and club employee every Friday and Saturday night for that.

haha nice one PM I think that's for off licences as well :slch2:

Pretty sure that Wasting Time one has been issued for BOMB HOAX if just a very local disturbance caused - quite a good ticket to be able to give out actually :slead:
