Apolice force has been criticised on social media after officers wore nail varnish as part of a campaign to highlight modern day slavery.
Avon & Somerset police relaxed its dress code rules for Anti-Slavery Day to highlight that many victims of the crime are working in nail salons.
They shared images on social media of officers sporting colourful nail varnish using the hashtag #LetsNailIt, linking to an article about human trafficking.
However, the campaign was met with a social media backlash, with one user calling it an “epic fail”, adding: “You could just point out the facts in numbers.”
Another wrote: “You’re there to police the community not post vacuous, grandstanding publicity stunts on social media. You’re actually just alienating people.”
