  1. 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

  6. 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.
  8. 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

    I shall post my experiences as I go along, so others can compare or have an idea what's going to happen or what was different for them.

For you exciting OSU or firearms officers with your really cool uniforms ( or so says my daughter ) please feel free to scroll on by ok, so after passing all the requirements back in 2014, I sadly got the email telling me that due to Buget cuts, the whole of the 80 odd PCSO's would be shelved.

  21. Greetings, Bit of a strange question and I wondered if anyone on here knew the answer because it's alluding me but to cut a long story short a PCSO mate of mine from another station was passing through the other day when he came across a TI on a train, he called up asking if a bobby could meet it in, long story short the chap was compliant and provided his details, I informed the PCSO to report the bloke for summons and to radio back if he kicked off or needed us for anything to which I was informed PCSOs could no longer report for summons for travel fraud... I told him to report him under the
  22. PCSO Joel Driscoll joined the force six years ago and has been part of the Central Bedfordshire priority anti-social behaviour team for two-and-a-half years. He has two children – a daughter aged six and a three-year-old son. On Father’s Day, he tells us what it’s like juggling fatherhood with the demands of the job. My children are fascinated by what I do. Every time they see a police car or van they ask questions and wonder if mine looks like that. Just the other day I was dropping my son off at school when an ambulance drove past. He turned to me and said, ‘Are they your friends, Daddy?’
