Another Brilliant Police Initiative

There's pretend plod ... and then there's real pretend plod.

A LIFE-SIZE cardboard cut out of a policeman, designed to scare would-be thieves, was stolen by a drunken prankster.

Eight cardboard cut-outs of police officers were placed in petrol stations and shops across Essex to deter and confuse would-be criminals earlier this year.

Well, that worked then.

Er.. yeah.. sorry about that..

But it looks great next to my life-szed cardboard Darth Vader.

In fact I can't tell them apart..

A few years ago in County Durham traffic plod set up full size cardboard police cars on the bridges across the motorway. The 'initiative' failed when drivers looked in their rear view mirrors or approached from the wrong side.

You have to laugh or you'd cry...
