Radical police shake-up plans 'a return to 1950s'

Radical police shake-up plans 'a return to 1950s' --A return to 1950s-style policing was signalled by the Government yesterday as ministers unveiled plans to recruit tens of thousands of special police constables. 26 Jul 2010 The number of the voluntary officers would increase more than fourfold -- from the current 15,000 to the peak levels of 67,000 last seen more than 50 years ago, said Theresa May, the Home Secretary.
