PCSO'S - SOMETHING FOR NOTHING ?
So Newport get to 'share' one PCSO - great, big deal.. . When I came to Newport, not so many years ago, the town (much quieter and smaller then than now) had it's own station with a compliment of 1-2 sergeants, 12 constables and 4 traffic wardens! What are we left with for my £10 a day council tax ? A figure that hasn't reduced, proforma over the years, despite the council greatly increasing its rate paying catchment and new home payment rewards. Surely there should be a formula for essential services such as police per capita instead of the 'make it up as you go along' approach, thereby getting something for nothing. I never thought I would be embarrassed to say I was a bobby. I'm glad I did my 32 years service when and where I did and believe the public had their money's worth.
