- Police Staff Conference 2004
- 27 February 2004
- Carried as Amended
This Conference is aware that Government funding for the Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) employed by many police forces across the country is shortly to come to an end. Some police forces have indicated that they may not be able to maintain the levels of PCSOs that they currently employ when this funding runs out. Many of our members will then find themselves in a redundancy situation.
This Conference instructs the Service Group Executive to hold urgent talks with the Home Office to secure future Government Funding for PCSOs.
Conference also instructs the SGE to encourage to lobby local authorities to assist in future funding.
