Top Trumping The Police

by | 16th, July 2008

GET a load of “smiling” PC Ben Treen showing Sun readers his “latest hand in the war on crime”.

No, it’s not a kebab suit, which coppers will pull on to lurk unnoticed in eateries, ready to pounce at the first sing of trouble. It’s not a propelling pencil. It’s a game of Top Trumps.

Officers in Fratton, Portsmouth, have equipped themselves with cards that feature their image and ratings for such key policing activities as pedal power, problem solving, agility and strength.

Says the Sun: “Some officers say they are mobbed outside schools by kids demanding the cards.”

Indeed, it’s a handy way to work out which of the local wooden tops is the thickest, the slowest, the least agile and the weakest.

Pick your card, any card, and have it away on your toes…
