Undercover Bomber

Join the conversation

As I was cruising top down in Manuka today … ok to cold for top down and my car does not have a retractable roof but try and get the picture… I noticed a parking inspector doing her rounds in civilian clothing? This parking inspector was undercover, she had the camera and ticket machine the lot she was the real deal.

The thought had crossed my mind that she could indeed be an police officer dishing out tickets which I know they can do, but no this was an undercover bomber [parking inspector / ranger].

Whats going on here, have I missed the public consultation or awareness campaign that this was happening?

Or simply did she forget to wash her uniform?

Simple answer – Casual Friday


Yeah they have changed their uniforms, I noticed it a couple of weeks ago, I guess so they don’t look like park rangers? Or so they can do their job’s without being beat up?

Most likely a new ACT Parking Opeations Inspector. They usually don’t get their uniform until after the initial probation period. Not unusual to see the odd one in plain clothes in the city.

Wouldn’t have been police. Too much volume crime to deal with rather than wasting resources booking cars.

What exactly was she wearing? If it was something like a polo and cargo pants, maybe they’ve changed uniform.
