Police Cardboard Cutouts

* a collection of stories and memories, in no particular order, from the life and times of John Clarke, who served as a policeman in the Australian Police Force, a great practical joker, he also had a great affinity with people and wildlife, was a champion swimmer, snooker player, loved golf, still loves fishing and is also an artist. I hope you enjoy his recollections - cheers, karin (his daughter)

When I was at Kingscliff I had this great idea about Cardboard Cutouts for the Police.

Put in a report and the idea was to be introduced for the cutouts of Police Officers to be placed in stores to prevent shoplifting.

At the last minute I was invited to a 'do' in Sydney with the Commissioner, etc, but couldn't go due to the short notice.  I got a $200 chque from the Police Dept for the idea!

They were put in shops all over Australia and studies showed they reduced shoplifting a lot.They seem to be out of fashion now.
