  • PCSOs to be given enhanced powers to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour
    on April 18, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Staffordshire Police’s community support officers are to be given enhanced powers to tackle minor crime and anti-social behaviour more effectively. The force has over 220 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) who provide a valuable link between local communities and police officers, as well as a visible presence on the streets. Staffordshire has recently undertaken a review of the powers that PCSOs currently have. These powers have been refreshed and agreed by the force’s Chief Constable, Gareth Morgan and will be more role related concentrating on the issues that local neighbourhoods tell us about and leaving police officers free to complete other duties. Nationally, PCSOs have varying powers dependent on the geography and requirements of the particular force. The new powers issued to Staffordshire PCSOs are required to respond to specific local priorities. As a result, they have been given responsibility for dealing with all complaints of anti-social behavior […]

    Staffordshire Police is appealing to car owners to secure their vehicles and not to leave items on display following a spate of thefts of items from parked cars in the north of Stoke-on-Trent. Over the past few days officers have dealt with five reports of thefts from motor vehicles in Sneyd Green, Stanfield, Chell and Hanley. Items taken have included designer sunglasses, brand new shoes and tools. Stoke North Neighbourhood Policing Team Sgt Victoria Barker said: "We're asking vehicle owners to be conscious of security. Please make sure you lock your vehicle when you leave it, even if it's only for a few seconds while you go to pay for fuel at a filling station. Don't leave things on view. Wherever possible take things with you. If you have to leave items in your car then make sure they're locked away out of sight in the boot. And if possible, park somewhere well lit. These simple measures may help reduce your risk of being targeted by thieves." Anyone who has any information […]
