Life-size cardboard cutouts of Lincolnshire Police officers and PCSOs are to be placed in stores in Boston.And they’ll be as much use as the real ones?
Inspector Phil Clark said, "We are working closely with local businesses to tackle shop theft and reduce the impact such offences have on our local economy.Have they indeed? You mean, if they aren't stolen?
"Similar cutouts have been used in other parts of the country with very successful results".
Or maybe, that's your cunning plan? Get all the mindless, bored, shoplifting teenagers targeting them, instead of bottles of WKD?
