This is what happens if you ignore them. The guy in question hadn’t even commited any offence, the Kingdom warden tried to wrongfully fine him for smoking in the wrong place. As you can see at 1 minute 50 seconds, the warden pretends to ring the police. Eventually, once the warden realises that the guy won’t fall for it, she gives up.
If you accidentally drop something and Kingdom approach you then firstly pick it up, but say nothing. They will demand that you give them your details but again remain silent and keep walking away from them. At this point, they will be telling you that it is a further offence to fail to provide details and that they will phone the police. Just remain calm and keep walking. At this point, they will most likely pull out a mobile phone and pretend to phone the police, again this is just the last desperate attempt to scare you into giving your details. At this point, once they see that you aren’t falling for their threats, they will give up and try it on with someone else….it’s not worth them continuing to pursue you at this point as they will know by now that there is no chance of them issuing you with a FPN and that if they want to earn their bonus by fullfilling their daily quotas, they will need to try and fine someone else who may fall for it instead.
Wonder how many more people refused their details though
Here is the BBC Panorama documentary Inside The Litter Police, which was filmed last year. Between 14 minutes to 14 and a half minutes, you will hear the Kingdom operative admit that they pretend to call the police, in order to scare people into giving their details. As has already been mentioned previously, Wrexham police have already been overheard on the Townlink radio refusing to get involved when people refuse to give their details.
Kingdom Security have been overheard on the townlink radio a number of times asking for police assistance when something refuses to give their details. Each time, the reply from the police has been that they can’t legally get involved.
Futherore, Kingdom Security don’t actually record alleged offences, they only switch their body cameras on when approaching people. So no one has to worry about being identified in the future as there will be no evidence on camera anyway
They’ve got a large turnover of staff, that’s why you often see Kingdom advertising jobs in Wrexham and indeed all of North Wales. Kingdom operatives have to issue so many fines per day otherwise they lose their jobs.
Once Councillor Bithell gets off his high horse and realises that the people of Wrexham aren’t daft enough to accept what are essentially illegaly issued fines, then Kingdom will be gone from the area. In the meantime, keep on refusing to give them your details. They might follow you for a while threatening you with the police but if you calmly ignore them and carry on walking they’ll soon give up and go for an easier target
