Around 400 complaints are being filed per month by police officers who are being harassed by lewd calls from women and gay men who admire their tight uniforms.
Websites have been setup offering advice for those wishing to seduce police officers and even pictures are on offer of police in their uniforms. Senior police say that whilst the uniforms may be contributing, officers will just have to deal with it.
The majority of calls are received between midnight and 2am, and most are from men. "If we talk to them for too long they ask us out, and the gay men always talk lewdly" said one high ranking officer.
