British Heralds Find Place in Modern World

Police in Middlesbrough, England have recruited heralds to accompany them on rounds to act as town criers. The heralds use their trained voices to warn citizens to lock their doors.

The town criers, dressed in red, shout their warnings to the public:

"Oyez! Oyez! Beware! Burglars, thieves and vagabonds are operating in this area. Keep all windows and doors locked. Shut it, lock it, don't give them the opportunity!"
