I did call them and was assured an officer would attend, however I did not hang around. I have not as yet been re contacted.
Suitably embarrassed. However the point remains, regardless of the school boy error.
Would agree 100 %, the lads do a great job, and under oft times difficult conditions. However it will never cease to amaze me how, in Spain, for example, a country supposedly on it’s knees financially, that they can clear urbanisations DAILY, AND then power wash the rubbish bay, whilst we struggle to complete a bi weekly house hold collection and put the bin or box from whence it came. Furthermore why are the collection trucks not able to complete a collection , and then make it to the recycle point spewing 10% of the load over the road side ..
The point you (Council Watcher) raise re the almost unique arrangement ,Wrexham being one of the VERY few authorities funding PCSO has not been overlooked at all, I mentioned it 26 Dec. Further more I personally do not believe that there is ANY correlation to be made or assumed, between differing areas, crimes rates and the number of PCSO’s. I firmly believe their percents on the streets has no impact on crime figures what so ever, ZERO, hence i think and would support any proposal to bin the entire concept, and spend any savings on front line fully trained, fully authorised, full blown police officers, if if the replacement ration was , for example 5:1.
Matt, I think that is the most balanced response to date, and I am having a tendency to agree with you.
Oh to have time to sit back in an arm chair. You talk as if anyone that expresses an opinion, or as you say “complains”, is over 70, arm chair bound, and, who, prior to expressing an opinion, never researches the topic or social issue on which they are expressing their views. If the role of the PCSO’s is to sooth the brow of concerned residents, or to attend meetings and report back, or, to be the eyes and ears of police officers between the hours of 0900 hrs and 16.30 hrs then it confirms my view that they should all be binned. Because that IS or SHOULD be the role of the fully trained police officers, and if there are not enough of them, enrol more with the funds saved/ BEING WASTED on this useless powerless un needed tier of uniformed street strollers A idealistic simplistic view of their (PCSO’s) INTENDED role is one thing, the reality is that they are a waste of money and creates a false sense of security … for some.
Opinionated yes, idiot , maybe, but as previously stated and requested you do not table any real benefits of having PCSO’s , but then again the likes of Cmedson and mother of the animal, have not started a single topic between them, so are obviously not opinionated. They just bump their gums about the opinions of others, whilst being devoid of anything other than aggression. I stand by my statements, kids dressed up as police men/women do not bring any benefit what so ever, and especially when Wrexham Council is paying a fair junk of their salaries, an almost unique arrangement. Junk the concept it does not work.
Go on then , educate me in terms of the great job these people do, other than tweet bull shit about pointless strolls around the streets, at times statistically proven to be low crime times. I know the role they are engaged for, it’s to create the illusion the police have a meaningful presence when in fact they do not, on foot on the roads or in the air. Hence the rise in anti social behaviour, street crime and ridiculous driving standards, no fear of being caught.
If you want to mention drivel, whats all that crap about “the police are the public and that the public are the police. Unlike you Mother of the animal, I an not deluded enough to suggest I have all the answers, thats not my job. However I retain the right to hold an opinion and will not be brow beaten by people like you and your aggressive stance to all you do not agree with, have your opinion,voice it, and reel y’neck in.
It will all calm down and revert to peaceful haven of beauty and tranquility once the new arts hub is in full swing.
The yobs druggies and shop lifters will be enthralled by what can be achieved with a potatoe and some oil based paint, still life competitions will abound, and the performing arts will boom like never before.
100% Agree, this years market is credit to the town and the organisers Very Enjoyable, well done to ALL involved.
