On September 14, 1967, Scotland Yard held a fashion show to display the new uniforms for policewomen. I suspect this is the ONLY fashion show Scotland Yard has ever held. The caption that ran in American papers
"Scotland Yard, apparently bitten by the swinging London bug, holds fashion show here 9/14. Here, London policewomen display the new Norman Hartnell-designed uniforms. Although a far cry from the miniskirted scene stealers, the new ensembles do have shaped skirts."

Cardboard cutouts of police cars
are being used in China to slow speeders down. The instant response is universal, see a police car, hit the brakes, even when you're not speeding if you are anything like me. A clever idea if they are moved around. Switching the cardboard and real patrol cars around would keep the public guessing and slowing down 'just in case'.
