Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and  I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

If a person working in the police station is a police officer, or a police community support officer, then their number would actually be shown on their uniform.

Many police forces however, do you civilian staff on front deck duties to take initial enquiries and to free up officers, the civilian staff do not always have numbers and certainly would not have what you call a PC number simply because they are not police officers.

If you have had a problem with a person staffing the front deck at the police station, then you should write a formal letter of complaint to the chief constables office for the force in question, in this case Devon and Cornwall constabulary. Set out the time and date and what the issue was so that they can look into your complaint and reply back to you.

I hope this addresses your question regarding a PC number.
