Name News: Police forces from across the UK have warned that they are rapidly running out of decent codenames to give operations.

“We’ve already exhausted all the cool sounding names like ‘Operation Falcon’ or ‘Operation Lion’,” said Deputy Chief Constable Norman Wayne of Surrey Police.

“I personally have just finished an eight month stint on ‘Operation Wet Wipe’, which had nothing to do with babies but we were stuck for a name and one officer who was a new Dad suggested it. Criminals aren’t taking us seriously when we have to use these rubbish codenames.”

DCC Wayne says that one of his colleagues is currently assigned to ‘Operation Horrible Sweaty Prawn Sandwich From Tesco’, because all the good names had gone and the officer in charge was forced to take inspiration from his lunch.

“In twelve month’s time all the existings words will have been used,” warns DCC Wayne. “Officers will be forced to use vowel sounds or onomatopoeia. No police officer wants to be part of Operation Plop.”
