THREE STRIKES LAW NOW!
We, the public, petition the government to introduce a three strikes law. If an offender commits three serious criminal offences, after being given two separate chances to reform by the courts, they should automatically receive a sentence of life imprisonment without the option of parole.

A big yes from me. This country of ours has got to make a stand and say enough is enough. Rights for the victims, not for the offenders. Those responsible for the riots, then set them to hard labour. Make them clean up the mess they have created, and make them pay finacially.

    The resource section was Arthur_Ascii's final suggestion from 07 Dec 2010 07:57 pm

    So! A resource section with useful docs on PNB, Airwaves, Statements, Generic presentation templates, links to other related sites.

    sounds good but to be honest WE DON'T HAVE IT

    TOP 5 REASONS WHY PCSOs are good for the public!

    1. they're out there, on the street, approachable

    2. they have local knowledge

    3. they have a genuine interest in and commitment to neighbourhood issues

    4. they have the time to support victims

    5. they tackle anti-social behaviour

    On 10 July 2002 John Denham, the Minister of State for the Home Office, informed Parliament that the power of detention given to Community Support Officers (CSOs) would be introduced in a controlled manner.

    PCSOs in trainingSpecifically, he stated: “We want to allow for [the power] to be tested in practice in a sufficient number of varied forces to gain experience of its operation before it is made available to all forces in England and Wales.” The Police Reform Act 2002 makes provision for Community Support Officers to be designated with the power of detention. Where a CSO has reason to believe that a person has committed a relevant offence he or she may require that person to supply their name or address.

    A relevant offence is defined as either a fixed penalty offence or an offence which has caused injury or alarm to another person or the loss of or damage to property. If the individual concerned refuses to give a name or address or the CSO suspects that the details that have been given a re false then the CSO may ‘require the person to wait with them for up to 30 minutes pending the arrival of a constable’1.

    Alternatively the CSO may accompany the person to a police station with that person’s agreement. Any person who fails to wait with the CSO as required or who tries to make off is guilty of an offence.

    CSOs may use reasonable force in order to detain a person, but they are not supplied with handcuffs, batons or CS spray. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) with the assistance of the Home Office Research, Development and Statistics Directorate (RDS) undertook an evaluation of the use of this power and this report summarises the results of the evaluation.

    The evaluation involved all six forces undertaking the pilot and covered a 15-month period from January 2003 to March 2004.
