Default PCSOs - How badged ?

I notice some PCSOs wear the cap badge of their parent Force whilst others wear a ' shield' type bearing a simple inscription.Is their a national policy on this ? Is it correct for a 'non-attested ' officer to wear a police badge ?

From Wiki so not sure how accurate/official.

"Headgear may or may not display the force crest, some have a metal shield, usually blue, stating "police community support officer" followed below with the name of the wearer's respective force in smaller letters. Some newer versions of such shields have the wearer's respective force crest printed on them. Most forces now simply issue the same hat badge that is issued to constables."
