Re: Could this be the end of the PCSO??

Given that the biggest cost to any force (indeed any organisation or business) is the wages bill, I expect a reduction in PCSO numbers and a reduction in hours worked which will thus reduce the increment for unsocial hours. The force I work for pays 14% shift allowance to PCSO's who don't work past ...

Re: school-run drivers should behave themselves

An ill thought out, unconsidered and totally inaccurate comment. Feral cats behave far better than school run drivers.

Re: is anti climb paint legal? can you use it at home?

From what I can gather from a quick internet search, under the Occupier's Liability Act 1984, householders have a duty of care to anyone on their property if they are entitled to be there or not. So you can put anti clamber paint on fences etc with the following caveats : 1. It must be no lower than...

Re: Charlie Hebdo magazine

Quite right too. Every newspaper and magazine should publish these cartoons on their front page as a demonstration of our right to free speech and in defiance of those thugs and bullies who would deny it to us and who would threaten violence to those who stand up for free speech. Anjem Choudary is a...

Re: Traffic wardens 'pressured' into issuing tickets

I wonder if there'll be any repercussions (hopefully the sack) for those who made the decision to unfairly dismiss Mr. Berkani. There should be no targets for numbers of tickets issued and the directors of NSL should be fined and any council staff proven to approve of the targets should face dismiss...

Re: First day at training school

naughtygoose It sounds like the training has changed. As a PCSO you can search for articles that may assist an escape; tobacco if under 16. Miper enqs? You can do them on any beat and will do, as you could be tasked with doing house to house with colleagues. Telephone enqs? I do them. Sometimes it's...

Re: Could this be the end of the PCSO ??

It almost beggars belief that this man thinks that further cuts are still possible considering the Chief Const. of Lincolnshire has stated that his force is close to being unable to function and how many other forces are close to that situation? Winsor seems to be saying that police should be concen...

Re: What type of equipment do you take out with you?

JimmyRiddle, It's something I intend to raise when I return to work. One question I am keen to ask, if I do use it and a complaint follows, will I be leaving myself open to disciplinary action and potential dismissal? I understand your comment regarding being mauled, but there is still the issue of ...

Re: End of the UK paper driving licence!

falkor,

I thought this had been delayed because of the difficulties that hire companies would face in checking the hirer's details, endorsements etc?

Re: First police force faces 'going out of business'

Two stories about the cuts and their effects. The first is about English forces merging : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30475078 and the second is how Scotland has merged its forces : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-30483314 So, are we heading towards a national police force? All one big happy ...
