Have your say
Sarah, no I am not a PCSO or any other law enforcement officer.
And isn't it brilliant news that this made the news? It means we haven't had a serious incident to report in the town.
I could quite happily cope with the news being mediocre as you put it, every single day for the rest of my time here.
Get my drift?
As long as your all prepared to pay a lot more in tax to fund it they could all be fully armed, ninja trained, MI5 personnel also. Get real. There's so many people on the scrounge in this country and its become unmanageable. That's why we have PCSOs because we can't afford enough police.
If you are one of these scroungers (and please don't go making excuses for yourself) get out there and earn and pay towards the upkeep of Great Britain plc.
