The force in Bournemouth posted on sosiale media: “We have a small favour to ask — quite a few parents have been joking with their under-tens, ‘Look, the police, they will take you away if you’re naughty.’

We politely ask that you don’t joke in this way.”

But locals replied the police were being “too PC”.

Een het geskryf: “Instead of parenting advice, try handing out some anti-social behaviour orders.”

'N Ander het kommentaar gelewer: “We’re heading towards a society where you can’t say a thing.”

En 'n derde het bygevoeg: “People used to say that to me as a kid — not once did I believe it or fear the police. It was just fun.”

Dorset Police said youngsters should know “we are here to help them”.

Polisie were branded “Grinches” for advising people not to leave gifts under the tree until Christmas morning, to deter burglars in Cambridgeshire.
