Just out of curious...

I know a guy who is one and has been doing it for 6 years ish and says he's on 24k, which I don't doubt. However he says that pay increases annualy and tops out at 30k....??

Really? I mean surely that's what a time served PC must be looking at, just struggle to believe a CSO could ever be on 30 grand!

24k is fairly low but I supposed that depends on which county you are on. My mate used to be on 35k.

IIRC the starting salary for a PCSO in London is higher than the starting salary of a counties PC

Police pay rates here

http://www.police-information.co.uk/policepay.htm

It's a couple of years out of date, but due to public sector pay freezes I don't think they've gone up much, if at all since then.

If you believe the Daily Wail they can get a little more than the basic rates by doing a bit of overtime.

That's some insane pay level there not to mention the pension! Too bad I'm not fit enough to be a PC...
edit: makes me think working in public sector really pays. I was in a train driver thread and basics for that are around 50-60k!

With that pay there's plenty left after cuts! I must say I'm feeling a bit down now being able to qualify (competition is fierce) ... I've worked my bottom out but still can't earn as much as some Inspectors.

why shouldnt it pay?

i am sure you wouldn't like standing around taking abuse from teenagers without being able to do anything about it.

the only thing baout them being paid so much is that they might as well be converted in PCs so they can actually do somehting about being abused.

I am sure a systems analysts adds so much more to society than a PCSO wink

I know a lad up here in North West land and he is only on 22k He's only been in the role for about 2 years though.

So maybe for 6 years service 24k I can see that happening somewhere along the line.

There is me calling it "service" Like Police Community Support Officers do anything? I see my local one just walking round on his tod.

Once he was stood outside my house for like 35 mins, I went to get in my car to reverse out of the driveway and he didnt even give me a hello or anything just plain rude.

I love that article. I remember reading it previously. In the same article they bash a few police officers who have worked extraordinary hours and say how much money it costs the tax payer, and also bash the ones with secondary, private jobs, who pay privately generated tax.

Yeah, that's the point.
