Police should 'ignore' couples caught dogging – having sex outdoors – unless members of the public complain, a report said yesterday.

Officers are also being advised to reduce 'knee jerk' reactions when they catch gay men having sex in public toilets.

Instead, police should focus on busting organised outdoors meets by researching sex forums on the web.

Michael Cunningham, ACPO lead on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues and deputy chief constable of Lancashire constabulary, drafted the 21-page 'policing public sex environments' proposals.

He said the guidelines – issued to Britain's 51 police forces – are being introduced because previous methods have failed, according to force magazine Police Review.
linky

So, how many Arrser's have volunteered to do a bit of 'on the job' research then? :D

I like this bit...........And he warned police officers to avoid a “knee-jerk reaction” when responding to complaints.

Although I believe he may have meant 'knee trembler'.

Face it, if they ignore complaints about these practices, how else are they going to know they happen? It's not like the police actually patrol anywhere these days, least of all areas off heath/woodland where these things might be going on.

Cottaging? Isn't that's when men dress as small picturesque houses (sometimes with thatch roofs) in order to have other men enter them through the back door?

It's never bothered you before.....

Perhaps we should ask that police be given guidelines to ignore speeding unless someone complains, as obviously preventative measures are not working

I thought we were banned after that last time? That poor old woman, the ambulance crew said she just kept repeating 'It was horrible, it looked like a monkey with it's throat cut'.

They're affraid a senior police officer, magistrate or judge will get caught. Despite complaints from the public, opperations were suspended in an area not too far sw of London, back in the mid 90's, after 2 senior military officers were arrested!

SkiBum has got it in one. I was not exactly stopped from organising my relief to observe and arrest people in public toilets but the conditions imposed upon be after my first weekend foray made it impossible to catch anyone. On Monday morning the first question the C/Supt asked was "Was anyone important caught?"
Early in my police career enforcement was stopped in the market town where I was stationed after the Deputy Coroner, a solicitor and a D./Sgt were all caught.

The public will just have to put up with men smiling at them and watching them while they urinate.

..that's diversity for you. Makes for a much more pleasant world when we respect others perversions.

Many years ago, before being gay was compulsory, we had to stake out the toilets in a rather pleasant area of the city, by the river, and known locally as 'The Fairy dell' . A good friend of mine on our relief was 'lucky' enough to catch the City mayor importuning a young ( and boyish) probationer constable. Our boss was most pleased, and hoped we could catch the rest of the socialist-leaning council.

Just another symptom of the Police surrendering the streets. Public decency laws are just that, laws to maintain an acceptable level of behaviour in the country. Now I can't call someone a faggot but I have to put up with watching two fornicate when I go for a slash. It boggles the mind.

Michelle Cuntingbum, CRAPO lead on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other assorted social problems, and deputy chief constable of Wankashire constabulary, drafted the 21-page 'policing public sex environments' proposals.

He said the guidelines – issued to Britain's 51 police forces – are being introduced because previous methods have failed, according to force magazine, PerversityIsUs.

Police should encourage couples caught dogging, and join in where appropriate. In addition, officers are to police public conveniences to ensure that any cottagers are able to perform their dastardly deeds in peace and quiet. Local councils will be encouraged to remove all anti-cottaging graffiti and paint walls in a welcoming pastel shade, provide free condoms and sanitary towels for mopping-up operations, a selection of flavoured pillows on which to bite, and disposable underwear in case of any nasty spillages. Any member of the public caught complaining is to be arrested and issued either a spot fine of £1000 or undergo a course of intensive diversity training.

‘We will not tolerate normal heterosexual activity’ says Cuntingbum. We will now ruthlessly focus on rooting out normal sexual activity and spare no expense in busting heterosexual middle-class married couples indoor meets, through an intelligence-led operation that will research Electoral Registers to identify such types.

Cottaging is public toilets. Old style toilets are supposed to look like little houses or cottages.
Take a tip from me - err, no that's not what I meant. Oh bugger, err no no what I mean in this:-

Always lock yourself in a cubicle if you need to use a public khazi, even if you only need a pee. If there are any suspicious holes at groin height, block them up with toilet paper before you unzip.

Why do gay blokes have a thing about public toilets? You don't get lesbians cruising women's toilets do you? Surely the likes of George Michael could afford a hotel room for his tonsil tickling activities.

And another thing, what's the idea with these holes in cubicle walls? Who the hell pushes their dangly bit into the unknown like that. For all they know, the next stall could be occupied by some psycho with a pair of garden shears.
