SNOOPING residents are being offered rewards of up to £500 to spy on their neighbours.
Other local authorities recruit adult volunteers and at least 4,841 people
are already patrolling the streets in their spare time.
Some are assigned James Bond style code numbers, which they use
instead of their real names when they ring an informer’s hotline.
Last week it emerged councils are still using surveillance technology
to spy on suspected minor offenders despite being banned by law
Councils have been criticised for using technology including tracking devices
to combat minor offences such as dog fouling.
