World's smallest policeman
There used to be a rule that all policemen must be over 5 feet 10 inches tall. This photograph illustrates that this no longer a rule. However, this was the rule when such TV detectives as Inspector Morse (John Thaw) and Inspector Frost (David Jason) joined the force. Both actors would have been disqualified from being policemen by the height rule.
Robin Port, the constable in the picture is just 5 feet. However, Sue Day from the Swindon Force is 2 inches shorter.
