“Arrest”, Glasgow: policing by stealth

Arrest burglar alarm Glasgow 2010“Arrest Security Systems” burglar alarm, Glasgow • After days of dull detective work, once Sherlock was brought in an arrest was smartly made. But whereas burglar alarm firms make free with detection themes, they can’t overtly reference the police, so they do it by stealth, employing blue-and-white colour schemes, and names such as this. I once spotted a “Cop” alarm too, somewhere down the immense length of South London’s Old Kent Road (aka Murder Mile, so the Cop is well positioned), but I haven’t managed to re-find it and photograph it yet. • Spotted: Merkland Street, Partick, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, G11, Scotland, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Glasgow North
