In the past the Police have innovated with 'Plastic Policemen' (Community Support Officers) and 'Sleeping Policemen' (speed humps) but the latest replacement for falling Police numbers is not a nickname. Forces up and down the country have literally bought Police Officers made from cardboard. Constabularies have spent a total of £50,000 on 782 cardboard cut-out replicas of Police.
