Production company Raw Cut will follow Staffordshire Police, as they fight crime and provide reassurance to the county’s diverse and contrasting communities in a series of 16, one hour long episodes.
Following a successful pilot scheme trialling the use of body worn video cameras, Staffordshire Police officers are now wearing them on patrol to increase levels of transparency, helping protect both our officers and the communities they serve as well as bringing offenders to justice.
This innovative use of body worn video cameras along with observational footage of police work across the county, will feature in the landmark television series.
Jane Sawyers, Chief Constable, Staffordshire Police said, “It is really important to be able to showcase the outstanding day to day work of our officers, often in challenging circumstances.
“So often, examples of great policing and exceptional detective work go unnoticed and this landmark series will give us an opportunity to showcase not only these aspects of police work but the effective and necessary day to day work of all officers throughout this great county.
“It will demonstrate to the whole country, the transparency, integrity and professionalism of the Staffordshire Police Force as we carry out our duties and fulfil our objectives to keep our communities safe and reassured”
Jane Lomas Executive Producer Raw Cut said, “We are thrilled to have secured access to one of the most forward-thinking police forces in the country. Staffordshire Police employ 3,500 people with over 1,750 police officers, 200 PCSOs and 300 special constables.
“They’re more than just a police force, they’re a family. We are proud to be able to be making this show for Really giving viewers a chance to see this police family in action as they face the daily challenges of fighting crime.”
