Default Community officers to detain suspects in U.K.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...-suspects.html
This is a posting in reference to an earlier one that indicated traffic wardens and similar such as community bobbies now have the right of a PACE card and are able to detain terror suspects;the police state is unfolding in front of our very eyes.
Police community support officers will get the powers to detain suspects for the first time, Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, has said.
The news comes after a chief constable warned that the policeman on the beat could disappear within a decade and be replaced by PCSOs.

The Home Secretary wants to look at expanding their powers to include others such as detaining a suspect until a police constable arrives, imposing a fine for daubing graffiti and being allowed to disperse troublemakers.

Miss Smith said powers to detain, but not to make arrests, would be extended to all forces. Currently only 23 out of 44 police forces in England and Wales allow PCSOs to detain suspects.
