“The programme has given us the ideal opportunity to show the vast range of incidents we respond to, from catching speeding drivers and attending serious collisions to arresting wanted people and joining colleagues on other operations.

“I hope our passion for the job and our personalities shine through, and give our communities a real insight into the work we do on a daily basis to keep them safe.”
