A poster on the (private) Magistrates' Association forum has pointed
out that if one of the 16 or 17 year-old Community Support Officers has
to give evidence in court they will be entitled to the protections
afforded to a child witness!
You couldn't make this up could you !!
Does that mean that they will need a proper Policeman to come and hold their hand and be a responsible adult.
