For the September meeting the group were given a very interesting and informative talk by Adam Poole and Sylvia Lane, two local Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). The explained the role of the PCSO and the extent and limitations of the powers when dealing with the public. They also gave some illuminating examples of the type of incidents, mainly concerned with maintaining public order, they have to deal with, whilst of course ensuring they did not reveal any sensitive or confidential information about those involved.
I think we all came away with a better understanding of what the role of a PCSO is all about, and would like to thank Adam & Sylvia for coming to talk to us.
Next month we look foraward to a talk from the Great Western Air Ambulance Service.
