  1. So it appears they have changed the kit/uniform of Merseyside PCSOs by way of the black jacket, change to the hat badge and now handcuffs. This video shows a Merseyside PCSO outside Southport Police station - I'm kind of surprised that they've made this jump:
  2. Police staff union Unison has said the £60m funding boost to help enforce lockdown rules has highlighted the negative impact of some forces seeing PCSOs as "redundant". Date - 21st October 2020 By - Chloe Livadeas A £60 million funding boost for police and councils to deal with coronavirus lockdown rules would be better spent on long-term funding for PCSOs, according to Unison, the trade union which represents their interests nationally. It has called for an increase in PCSO numbers to help deal with lockdown rules as forces struggle with increasing crime levels and fa
  3. Police officers have to do driving courses as well as blue light training is this the same for PCSOs? as i know they get to use blue lights under some circumstances so are they just shown how to use it rather than actually going on blue light runs? seeing as PCSOs don't get involved in pursuits and advanced driving do they do not have to do any driver training at all? recently seen a PCSO stall his marked police car in a town centre so just curious and i'm not hating as there is people with 20 years driving experience who now and again stall manual cars, how come the police haven't gone full a

    PCSO questions

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can just clear up some questions regarding the PCSO role Do PCSOs have to do any sort of blue light training? i know under some circumstances they can turn on blue lights so are they just shown how to do that or are they taken on a full course or something? Do PCSOs have to do any sort of driving courses? i read somewhere that a standard licence is fine but also seen a recruitment video saying they do driver training courses? Is there any formal qualifications for the PCSO role? i only ask as i have seen contradicting answers Does training to b

  8. Lincolnshire Police is granting extra powers to its uniformed police staff. Lincolnshire Police has PCSO cars, but the staff members won't be allowed to enforce the rules of the road from them Date - 2nd October 2018 By - Ian Weinfass - Police Oracle 5 Comments PCSOs will be given the power to stop and seize cars, require drivers to show licenses and authorise the issue of traffic offence reports. Lincolnshire Police has announced it is using the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to give the uniformed police staff more
  9. New community stations will reduce the need for officers to travel miles from deployment centres More than 100 PCSO bases are to be introduced in Cheshire - including at a golf club and a fire station. Under Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane’s initiative to get “more feet on the beat,” PCSOs will be stationed at bases within their assigned communities. The plans will reduce the need to travel to and from deployment centres and increase time and visibility in communities. The locations proposed included a petrol station but this was rul

Pictured (l-r) Daventry District PCSO Paul Harris, Daventry District Sponsored PCSO Mia Ball, Mayor of Daventry Lynne Taylor, PCC Stephen Mold, Daventry District PCSO Kirsten Bates, Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Swann and Daventry District Sergeant Sam Dobbs A PCC is promoting a scheme for councils and businesses to pay for their own dedicated PCSOs as a way to beat budget cuts. Daventry Town Council in Northamptonshire has become the first to buy its own support officer as part of the initiative which sees personnel d
  11. Bobbies on the beat accounted for one in seven axed police posts over the past five years, analysis suggests. At the same time, one in three police community support officer (PCSO) posts - originally intended to be the "eyes and ears" of the community - have gone. Critics say a visible police presence in communities deters criminals and helps gather intelligence. The Home Office said "overall traditional crime" had fallen by almost 40% since 2010.

    Police Custody & Security Officer

    Hi folks, have just applied for the above position, while I know it is similar to a detention officer type role in England, could anyone give me a bit more information about it? I'm currently event security and nightclub door staff looking to explore new opportunities.
  13. Transport workers union leader accuses railways force of 'turfing staff onto the streets'. British Transport Police PCSOs are considering strike action over changes to their shifts. The TSSA union is balloting the force’s community support officers ahead of the imposition of a 1am shift finish which it says “jeopardises [their] safety” in London. According to a statement from the union, the force is attempting to save money by changing shift patterns – but the workforce wll not be able to get home by public transport as a result. The force employs 330 PCSOs, with half
  14. I noticed this recently and thought it was worth a discussion. 2 years ago they added the whole of s19 PACE to PCSOs, but this seems a huge leap. Could it be that PCSOs are soon to be sent to more jobs, tasked with more, stopping a vehicle and s165 seizing it/issuing the FPN, etc? (I appreciate they would have to use one of their already existing traffic stopping powers rather than this excluded one). I'm not sure if they'll be standard or designated powers. Will they increase their pay or give them further kit? Your thoughts? Wikipedia link The proposed Policing an

    PCSO Assaults Cameraman

    PCSO A and his colleague PCSO B, are on duty in the local town centre doing foot patrol duties at a busy event at which point they both notice a copblocker stood there with his phone out videoing them. They approach the copblocker and PCSO A asks him nicely why he is videoing them. He does not say anything in response. PCSO A removes the phone from the copblockers hand and says that he will have the copblocker arrested unless he cooperates. The copblocker calls his bluff and again makes it clear that he won't be answering PCSO A's question at which point PCSO A hands him his phone back. PCSO B

    Training and Starting

    Good Lord! It's ages since I have had a moment to come back and have a look on here since I last posted, but really, time has flown. I have completed the training and now have started my 10 weeks tutorship. The 8 weeks training was great, at times I was a little stressed, like when there was a rumour that the officer safety training would have me doing the bleep test 2 days running, but that was nonsense. You can do it, if you want to and the whole class is under 25 or gym fans but ours were very sensible and allowed me to warm up at my abilities. In the end I really enjoyed it. I never
