What’s On The Menu For PSOs?

Just in case you haven’t seen it,

The Andrews Labor Government, a few days ago, announced that Protective Services Officers (PSOs) will be given new powers to target anti-social behaviour and crime, with legislation being introduced into Parliament this week.

PSOs will be given a range of additional powers including:

  • the power to arrest a person who has breached their parole,
  • conduct searches for illicit drugs,
  • and request names and addresses from people who witness crime.
  • PSOs will also be able to respond to incidents in and around the train station they are patrolling.
