Nice to see in Harlow at least, that the police are on top of crime and have officers to spare on community engagement.

Why are they doing this, I don't understand?

Because Pop, nowadays the people that run this country are more interested in being seen to accept other countries cultures than to look after their own. They should be out solving crimes rather than this waste of tax payer funding!!

As a Muslim I find this to be cultural appropriation.

Now I don't understand what being a Muslim has got to do with your opinion , although I agree with you,

I don’t think any of you understand what culture appropriation means. You are speaking English, if you are not British - that is also cultural appropriation. Don’t be so stupid.

They are showing no respect to us tax payers, whom fund these days. I'm sure the vast majority of tax payers would rather see their hard-earned (and extortionate!) Taxes go towards more crimes being investigated and solved!! I'm sick of this country putting hate crimes at the top of the list, if a house is burgled these days the police turn up 5 days later!!!
