British-style policing

Interesting, looks like the police were implementing a very UK-style crowd control strategy at the Games. I've never seen soft-hat cops try and control a crowd without the use of more violent force (punching, shoving, hitting with batons) and it's usually only until the riot-suited police are able to take over the line.

Other video I've seen seems to show the police "kettling" protesters during the Saturday "Heart Attack" march.

Is this normal Vancouver police practice or was it adopted specifically for the Olympic games?
