A Neighbourhood Watch Association faces being evicted from the police station where it operates unless its members reveal their sexuality and how much money they owe.
The Canterbury and District Neighbourhood Watch chairman Graham Jackson says his 10-strong team, which operates from Herne Bay police station, have been told they will be barred from the police station on January 20 unless they sign six “highly personal” forms.
Mr Jackson, 53, said his team – which send out 50,000 crime alerts to more than 70,000 Neighbourhood Watch members each year – will be evicted from their office, effectively shutting down the service.
Mr Jackson said: “Why should volunteers be asked about their sexual orientation or ethnicity or tell police how much money they owe?”
The six different forms include questions about volunteers’ income, savings, loans, monthly outgoings, investments and credit agreements.
They also demand to know the sexuality, ethnicity and health record of each volunteer.
Mr Jackson has refused along with five other volunteers.
I'm sorry, Mr Policeman, but what fucking business is it of yours? Fuck off.
