Does This Ad Make Sense? Search Me...

I don't know whether the advertising agency employed by Bedfordshire Police for its recruitment is just completely unaware of the current controversy over stop and search powers, or whether thoughts of moving on because of proposals for the force to merge wiith a neighbour has left everyone slightly stir-crazy, but the ad above really is unintentionally funny.

So if you happen to be in the Luton area, remember to stop a cop and ask him or her to turn out their pockets - and don't forget to offer them a receipt when you're done.

Give Newham Council a call, they must have some stop and search forms that were printed up for the Keystone Kops (AKA parks constabulary) lying around.

They look like the real thing, down to the proviso on the back that, should you wish to complain, you can do so to the Met Commissioner - even though he has nothing to do with Newham Council.
