Cyclists can get their bikes security-marked by police tomorrow.

Officers from Waltham Forest Safer Transport Team will be on hand to mark bicycles with ink that can only be seen under UV light at Halfords in Hall Lane, Chingford, between 4pm and 6pm.

The markings would mean the bicycle would be easily identified if police recovered it after it had been stolen.

The team will also hand out crime prevention advice.

So this is a misleading headline. It ought to read:

'Civilians dressed up in uniforms but with no more powers of arrest than anyone else sent by police to mark bikes with security ink'.

Or how about "police community support officers support police at community event".

Or does that get in the way of your very stretched attempts to make derogatory remarks about a perfectly sensible and effective use of police resources?
