Cuffs: Possibly depending of area of work

Baton: Yes in all counties
Spray: Yes in all counties
(I think PCSO's should get either spray or the baton, but not both.)
Warrant to arrest: Not at all
Warrant to detain: Yes in all counties (already current legislation?)

I am open to critisism on my views, but like I have said, this is just in my opinion.


what is the "warrant" bit? I do not get that part, sounds like PCSOs should have warrants given to them to carry around with them on their beats
do you mean "Arrest without warrant" and "detain without warrant" ? :wink:

PCSOs do not need additional powers to apply handcuffs, if they are detaining or making an arrest they can apply handcuffs if they have them as part of justifiable legal force

but talking of additional powers :arrow: check out our POWERS page here

what powers are left that PCSOs haven't got after reading that? can anybody say? :!:

I think i would help if we had the power to stop & search, and be able to issue a few more FPN's for minor driving offences.
PPE..well i think it's should be top priority for health & safety resons to be issued CS, were dealing with public here, we don't know what's round the corner!!

I agree with sponge with regard to dealing with minor driving offences. In Derbyshire we have recently had two purges with regard to traffic, one for not wearing seat belts whilst driving and the other which is currently running, driving whilst using a mobile phone. Now lets face facts, we (PCSO's) probably see more of these offences being committed every day than our team members the P.C.'s because we are on foot patrol for the vast majority of our duty time. SO GIVE US THE POWERS TO DEAL WITH THEM. :evil: :evil:
