FYI: if you are using a phone issued by the SO or are receiving a stipend for using your personal phone for SO operations they can pull it at any time. If you're not getting compensation then they would have to get a court order during the investigation unless you hand it over willingly.

You are absolutely right. They don't have a right to your personal cell phone unless they have a Subpeana. If they threaten you or fire you, you will get your job back by civil review board. It's iillegal and they need a Subpeana in order to get it. If it ain't criminal, good luck on that Subpeana. Just tell them that you will sue them and see ya in court.

I am an unaffiliated party...you will be charged with insubordination if you do not give them your PERSONAL cell phone.

Beats the heck out of being fired and dragging a dozen others down with you with the evidence found on your phone. It's none of their business anyway because it is your own private phone. Even if they fire you for insubordination you will get your job back and more in the civil service appeal. Then you can sue them for wrongful dismissal, defamation of character and legal fees.

When you get off probation and get a little experience, you will begin to see how things really work around here. Failure to cooperate with an internal investigation will land you outside the SAB calling someone for a ride home. You won't win a civil service appeal and surely won't win any defamation or wrongful dismissal cases. That all sounds great, but isn't real. When you sign the GO's and SOP's, you agree to fully cooperate with internal investigations and that means handing over the phone if they ask for it.
It's pretty obvious what the problems are at the PCSO. People need to get their priorities straight. When you signed on to become a deputy, you agreed to come to work for 8, 10, or 12 hours and perform law enforcement duties in return for a paycheck and benefits. It's not high school. You aren't being paid to pick up women or men, play on phones and electronic devices, or f**k off. Grow up and put the effort into the job or find another line of work.
