Music ban rocks jail house cops; CHARGING.
Officers have been told to switch off public radios, TVs, websites or MP3 players.
It follows a demand for a pounds 32,000 payment from the Performing Rights Society.
And it means whs ere more than one officer is working in a police station music will not be allowed to be played.
Yesterday, Wiltshire Police condemned the payment demand as "ridiculous".
Chief Constable Brian Moore said: " It is not common for music to be publicly performed in our premises as part of day- to- day business." But a PRS spokesman said: " The cost is based on all uses by the force in all stations, offices, cantens and communal staff areas."
