Police community support officer powers consultation.
The Home Secretary has launched a consultation on the powers of Police Community Support Officer.
The document entitled “CONSULTATION: PROPOSALS FOR EXPANDING THE ROLE AND POWERS OF POLICE COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICERS” seeks views on the following issues
- A proposed increase in powers conferred on PCSOs
- To enable future changes to PCSO powers to be made by way of secondary legislation
- To introduce a duty for Chief Constables to consult with Police and Crime Commissioners regarding the designation of PCSO powers
North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Winston Roddick said;
“I know many members of the communities of North Wales are very pleased with our use of PCSOs in the community. I would therefore be grateful if people are concerned about these proposed changes to get in touch and let me know so I can respond appropriately to this consultation to reflect the communities’ views as well as my own”
Full details of the consultation are within the attached document below. Please feel free to address some or all of the questions and give us any further feedback you may wish to share about your thoughts and opinions on this matter.
Please get back to us with your responses to OPCC@nthwales.pnn.police.uk by 4.00 pm on Monday 16th December 2013 to allow us time to collate all opinion and reply to the Home Secretary within the timescale set.
