Now demoralised police are sent on LITTER patrols in bid to hit performance targets

Police have been ordered to go on litter patrol in a bid to boost the number of people nicked for minor offences.

Officers will be forced to ditch their uniforms and go out undercover in plain clothes in an attempt to hit performance targets.

However cops are furious over the move – because they don’t even have the powers to issue on-the-spot-fines.

Instead, they will have to radio a PCSO – a lower ranking officer –  to attend the scene to slap the offender with a £50 to £80 penalty.
