Abstract

The police service in England and Wales is increasingly focusing upon crime detection with the result that the patrol function, including the vital aspect of order maintenance, is being neglected. This article explores the role of police community safety officers (PCSOs) and argues that it is necessary to equip them with sufficient legal powers to perform this task.
