  1. This is the new Hammersmith and Fulham Law Enforcement Team (LET). This article is from their website. I thought I would post it, as it is one of the largest non-warranted LA teams in Britain, it seems. They are aiming to get CSAS accredited. Their current re-mit is local policing issues really: Dog-fouling, littering, ASB, etc. They actually dis-banded and absorbed the former H&F Parks Constabulary into this, thereby losing their constable (and baton & cuffs) status. There are 72 officers across the Borough. Their uniform is a mixture of a CEO or City of London Police: Full article: https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/crime/law-enforcement-team * I thought this is quite a new development. I know we have had similar councils (Newham Law Enforcement, Bristol litter enforcement), but this has gone up a notch I think, as they provide a 24/7 service and moved all the council teams that dealt with this sort of stuff, into this one. Really, it seems to be (or want to be) a local police force in all but name and powers, similar to the continent. I for one would be in favour of legislating to give these guys constable powers, keep them under their council and keep them with just dealing with these type of offences in this area and leave everything else to the HO force. I'd be interested to hear other's views.
  2. This is an interesting one, and one for the law buffs. I am intrigued by this and where the local authority get their powers from. So in my area at the moment, these signs have gone up: These signs protest against the privatisation of the NHS by the Conservatives. However, it has been reported that residents are being sent notices by the council to remove them, and when they don't a couple of blokes in a van turn up and remove the sign. As far as a I can see, there is some kind of legislation set out for the local authority around the control of advertisements in Town and Country Planning Act 1990 under Chapter III, section 220. There are some powers for the removal, but it all seems a little vague. I also struggle to see where the power of entry comes from, as some residents are reporting the council officers are actually coming onto their land to remove the sign. All very odd. So where does their power to enter the property come from, and what happens if the signage is behind a wall and locked gate etc? How about contractors as well? Are they devolved the powers?
