A quick re-brand for Newham’s phony coppers?

A Newham Council “community safety officer” on patrol

An article in this week’s Newham Recorder (from which the above picture was *ahem* borrowed) about yet another ‘crackdown’ (yawn) on crime and anti-social behaviour in Newham refers to the mayor’s brigade of fake plods as the Community Safety Team.

When we were introduced to these fine people (pun intended) in the Newham Mag they were referred to as Enforcement Officers, or even ‘Law Enforcement Officers’.

Has the mayor done a swift about-turn and decided to make them sound a bit less threatening? I wonder what might have caused that.
