Police community support officers are employed by the police authority, they do not have powers of arrest or even carry sticks.
Most of them have been laid off in my area due to budget cuts, but most people ignored them anyway.
Last time I was arrested a PCSO tried to detain me first and I told him to back the # away until real cops arrived if he didn't want a punch in the
face, he complied, real cops arrived, I was arrested, then released no charges a couple of hours later.
