Re: Certificate in Policing

D&C Police are refusing to Allow their PCSO's who are already in the Job to have the certificate in Policing, Only new PCSO Recruits will obtain the Certificate.
The New Recruits will be mentored by Old School PCSO's, overlooked by Core Skills Trainers from HQ Training Dept.

Re: Foreign registered vehicles

We have been issued a Foreign Registered Vehicle type reporting form a bit like a CLE /28 or 26, but it is only used to report the movement of foreign registered Vehicle's.
You can obtain the the reporting form from your local DVLA Office.

If i remember i will try and get the CLE number of the form.
