PCSO escort officer

Recommended Posts

Could a Police Community Support Officer drive a car used to transport a prisoner whilst an officer sits in the backseat with them? What about driving a Police van being used to transport a prisoner if an officer is sitting next to them or vice versa?

Force policy specific, but it's possible in my force and does occur on occasion although PCSOs aren't generally allowed in custody suites themselves.

I was a civilian detention officer, I was allowed to drive police vehicles to transport prisoners to court, or prisoners from jail for interview by police.

I know that Cheshire a few years back used to have a pcso that would drive the transport van to custody with prisoners in the back.

It was about 8 years ago now though.

Don't know of any other force doing it. Merseyside certainly didn't.

Surrey used to have PSOs. They'd do a large number of the support for responsec teams where warranted pets weren't needed. Prisoner transport was one of these roles.

Last week, for the first ever time I saw a PCSO in custody. Not sure quite how he came to be there. Perhaps he was crewed with the officer that was bringing the DP in...

The DP actually ended up headbutting the PCSO, and we had to do a force strip-search and cell exit on him.

Don't think that PCSO will be coming back any time soon :wacko:
