New Police LSGC Medal (National Crime Agency)

Recommended Posts

Its only been going for 6 years. Hardly long service. If they are counting their job service, give them the job medal.

Agreed, I'm not entirely sure how that works if I'm honest. 

This chap for example............

I don't suppose it will be too long before they introduce a long service medal for the Border Agency. I think that's their current name, although its difficult to keep up. They keep on changing it, and their uniform etc !

What happens when it gets disbanded as it surely will, when the next government takes charge. Exactly like what happened with SOCA, NCIS and NCS?

Then it will become a scarce and desirable award for collectors who specialise in such areas. It would not be without precedent.

PCSO’s as well, perhaps? 

They had better hurry up. PCSO's are on the way out. Norfolk Constabulary have scrapped their entire compliment. The CC stated that when they were introduced, they were a good financial option. However, over the years their salary has increased to the extent that they are now not much cheaper than a recruit Constable. As a result of the cash saved he has been able to recruit 80 probationers. I visited London recently and was amazed to see PCSO's walking around in threes, and on one occasion there were four of them chatting on the corner of a street! The Met. obviously have far too many, with not a lot to do.

Believe the Welsh Government funding ends for them soon as well.... let’s not start minting any PCSO LGGC’s just yet.
