Over more than a decade, Traffic Cops, Britain’s longest running and most watched cop show, has built a huge and loyal following.
For the first time, Traffic Cops takes to the streets for an all new patrol in Derbyshire. The police here are right in the very the heart of Britain. Bordering seven other counties, and with the M1 running through it, they are crucial to maintaining order in the UK’s crime corridor. Derbyshire’s road police tackle a huge variety of crimes ranging from drunken drivers to drug dealers, and young thieves to violent gangs of organised criminals. With the UK’s Police Forces coming under increasing pressure as crime levels rise, Traffic Cops is vital viewing. Presented by Jamie Theakston.
