SPCSO Anybody out there!

Post by izustu » Thu Jan 31, 2008 7:08 pm

Hello to one and all.

I'm currently at Hendon, and once on Borough will be an SPCSO. (After 3 months on SNT)

Anybody out there already doing this role? What's it like?

Any comments welcome. :wink:

Perhaps I should have made it clearer exactly what the 'S' stood for. :wink:

It's a fairly new role, and there will be many challenges ahead.

I suspect that many, like myself are still in the training pool. So hopefully over the next few weeks and months some dialogue can start.

I'm two months through my initial placement with an SNT. All I know at the moment is that my CRIS training is on the 11th of March. As I get to know more I'll share the info on here. I'm aware that only a few SPCSOs are actually in place in the front offices in the Met currently so info might be a bit hard to come by.

What is the point of an SPCSO? It's just a farce. All they will do is what is already being done on front desks. Just a glamour title, they should be out on the streets with the rest of us. :roll:
