I overheard a sergeant (supervisor) directing a group of plainclothes officers that ANY infraction should result in arrest. This is simply an attempt to 'ramp up' the arrest figures and thereby define Supercrawl 'rowdy' event requiring MORE police next year.
The interesting comparison is Kensington's Pedestrian Sundays in Toronto, the police there have a pretty much hands off attitude to 'victimless' crimes, to the point where once I was asked to cross the road and use an alley on the other side, since the wind was blowing in that direction.

It's amazing these guys are always sick for their disciplinary hearings but somehow manage to pull themselves off their deathbeds for paid duty.
