Pensioner Speed Cops

First it was baby Community Support Officers in the Thames Valley area, now we have old age pensioners working as traffic cops! What is policing in the UK really coming to? Apparently a pair of pensioners have been recruited by North Wales Police to clock speeding drivers. The idea, was another 'brain child' of North Wales Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom, who is renowned for his controversial methods. He has a Chief's Blog which has also been complained about and reported on by the BBC in video.

Who knows, perhaps there will be no requirement for police officers in the brave new world of 'police reform'? After all, with youth unemployment and an aging population, the job could be done by illiterate juvenile delinquents and infirm partially sighted octogenarians... There's a money saving for the nation!
