Motor mechanics helping cops catch criminals
In this observational documentary series, we gain access to one of Britain’s leading police car workshops, Cheshire Police, and follow a car-mad team as they design and build vehicles for specialist missions, and undertake extreme repair jobs on cop cars which have got into scrapes with criminals.
Police vehicles are pushed to the limit, and must withstand extreme weather conditions, fires, dangerous driving, public disorder and out of control criminals. Following the mechanics and the officers they serve, we discover just how integral the kit is for the police, from vans with sound-proof twin cells to separate scrapping individuals, to spear-proof riot vans. And we follow the stringent tests carried out back at the workshop to ensure that their motors can leave the garage and go straight into a high-speed chase.
