PCSOs to replace regular police on beat


Recommended Posts

Anyone heard about the proposed plan to take most police off regular beat duties and replace them with PCSOs :?::suspect:

 

Apparently there is a meeting tomorrow of the police commitee to discuss this cost saving idea by the new chief constable :huh:

 

Don't know about you but this does not instill any feeling of trust in the new chief constable or any feeling of being safe on the streets. We need more police with full police powers on the street not less :rant::loopy:

It will be like this :hihi::hihi: ,must watch.

 

Get more visable PCSO's for cheaper.At the end of the day,a PCSO is the eyes and the ears of the regular cops.A press of a button and the rozzers will be there in minutes to back up/take over from the pcso.

How much more money, per month, would you be prepared to pay for more police on the beat?

 

Personally, I doubt police on the beat have any effect on crime rates

We need to tackle the issue of the lack of proper sentences, soft prisons & a spineless CPS before we will see a marked reduction in crime.

If we are to have a second rate police service (plastic police), then let's pay accordingly. The police precept saw its normal inflation busting rise.

 

And this so the police can deal with serious incidents?

 

Like what? Motoring offences?

 

PCSO = please contact senior officer.

PCSOs have no real Police powers iirc, they have no powers of arrest except in extreme circumstances and even then they have to be sanctioned by a "proper" Copper.

 

A few years ago I looked into joining up as one, cos I heard the money's not bad, but I'd never pass the fitness requirements so I didn't bother applying.
