Over more than a decade, Traffic Cops, Britain’s longest running and most watched cop show, has built a huge and loyal following.
Returning for a tenth series on Channel 5, Traffic Cops are back on patrol in Derbyshire, the very heart of middle England. Surrounded on all sides by large metropolitan areas, the Traffic Cops tackle a huge variety of crimes, ranging from drink and drug drivers to violent county lines drug dealers and organised crime gangs.
With the busy M1 motorway running through it, Derbyshire’s road police are crucial to maintaining order in one of the country’s crime corridors, at a time when the UK’s Police are coming under increasing pressure. Presented by Jamie Theakston.
