PCSOs, the ultimate walts?

#2
We've had two attempt to join our TA unit both as useful as tits on fish. They just wanted the uniform and kit. Weeding them out of the system isnt too difficult they aint that commited.

I don't undertand if the goverment can afford the pay for PCSO's , then why don't they just pay out for the real thing, cos these guys are useful for sweet FA

seems to be a prestge/power thing with the ones Ive met. Ive had one have a go at me for smoking outside the doorway of a pub because she said the smoke could blow back into the bar, and another one who refused to do anything when a couple of pikey chavs were kicking the sh it out of some herres fencing on one of our sites because it wasnt their responsibility aparently.

If PCSOs got identical uniforms to the fully trained and qualified PC then it could have some very dangerous fallout, look at the recent event of 2 PCSOs standing by while members of the public tried to save a young lad.

If they want to wear a Police Uniform then they should be properly trained as Police Officers.

How will they get more respect from the public when as soon as they are challenged to deal with an incident they run away or call for support as they are not trained and then stand by and do nothing......

The new uniforms should have a big yellow stripe down the back.

How many Walts do you see with a screwdriver to their ears? I don't think they are walts at all, just a government way of improving numbers and saving money.

It is the government who again made this mess. You can't put half trained Police Officers on the street.

Are you talking about the drowning incident? I think you should read the full story first. There was no one on top of the water and they didn't know where the boy was last spotted. A bit stupid to go in the water when you haven't got a clue were to go.

If they want the uniform, it's there for the taking. All they have to do is join the Police. Simple.

Oh - that's right, they're fucking useless cunts who haven't got the commitment or the guts. Sill y me.

Thats no excuse for cowardice, its that "not in my remit" attitude. I rekon that where ever the other kid was screaming and waving, that would probably be a good idea as to where the sprog was, no?

Just found the link or info to the PCSO however its not really helpful other than its there for anti social issues

As a police community support officer (PCSO), you will work on the frontline of your local force, providing a visible and reassuring presence on the streets and tackling the menace of anti-social behaviour.

This is a paid, usually full-time position that can lead to a long career with the police.

PCSOs have different roles in different forces, but they usually patrol a beat and interact with the public, while also offering assistance to police officers at crime scenes and major events.

Depending on where you work, you could:

deal with minor offences
offer early intervention to deter people from committing offences
provide support for front-line policing
conduct house-to-house enquiries
guard crime scenes
provide crime prevention advice
You would be a critical part of the force
Although PCSOs do not have the same powers as regular police officers, they still carry a lot of responsibility, and are a critical part of the police force.

which means BLX at the end of the day, we do what we want and when we want

What's the drama with the individuals? On the whole I think it's commendable that an individual is willing to pull on any uniform and do a job. It's not them that has let the side the down. It's this fcuking government with their cheap, quick fix solutions. The money should have been invested in putting PC's on the beat.

I don't have a problem with PCSO's and to be honest I feel sorry for them. How many of you would go out and do the job with your hands tied behind your back with beaurocracy and red tape?

The Army has it's share of ********* as does any section of society so I don't understand the vitriol here.

I know a few PCSOs and about half of them want to do a good job
problem is they are not trained properly or supported properly. the reason we have them is that they are
CHEAP!
