Hi All,

 

I see Wandsworth Events Police are the new Police team in Battersea Park, They used to be Parks Police until the Met took control some years back.

Does anyone know what uniform they wear and are they still attested as Constables?

 

Just an interest really!

 

Cheers.

Wandsworth Parks Police were Council Constables sworn under the relevant legislation, Boris did his BOGOF and the team was cut to the bone and re-branded, They're still Constables under that legislation and wear Police uniforms

Well, three years on and the contract with MetPol wasn't renewed and Wandsworth have recruited additional constables and have now reorganised into the Wandsworth Parks & Events Police! Welcome back guys!

Thanks Mr R. I'd like to think in time they will have the numbers again like we use to have but given all the current cutbacks etc it may take a little while!
