    Cambridgeshire police try out urination gadget

    Cambridgeshire police have been trying out a portable device to help women urinate standing up.

    The plastic funnel can be used without the need to remove any items of clothing.

    The trial was to determine whether the 7.50 Shewee would be useful for its 380 female officers if they went out on patrol.

    But results showed there was "not a great need" for the gadget, the police force said.

    In a Freedom of Information response however, the force said the introduction of the plastic funnels was "still under consideration".

    Shewee inventor Samantha Fountain, 33, failed to secure investment when she presented her design on the 2005 series of BBC's Dragons' Den.

    The device, which comes in five colours, has since gained widespread popularity among festival-goers, pregnant women and hikers.

    They tested those out for the US Army a few years ago.

    well if she is one of those "Manly Woman" she may be using that in lieu of her " strap on" so she can pee like a man

    BTW, the device sounds gross and unsanitary, may as well just wear depends adult diapers.

    Or squat I've seen drunk females do that a few times in the city centre.

    I have a friend of mine (male) who has used a "sneaky leaker" quite a few times at Mardi Gras

    saves looking for a port-a-potty i reckon...

    I don't know what the uniforms are like over there but here we have these big duty belts and crap on. If you could get something like that into Galls I bet you make a fortune among female cops who have to take off all their equipment to urinate.
