As police budgets, and numbers, come under threat, this hard-hitting new series reveals what police officers in England really think about being on the frontline. With access to police forces from inner cities to rural beats, Coppers shows what police officers are up against every day of their working lives. And they have guns. The series captures the reality of the job: from the riot police who face serious public disorder on our streets, to the seasoned custody sergeants who've seen it all, from the staff facing time-wasters calling 999 to emergency response teams racing to the scene only to find themselves acting as social workers or marriage guidance counsellors, and from traffic cops picking up the pieces after accidents to the thin blue line who face abuse and violence from binge-drinkers every weekend. Fans of Chris Moyles' jowls should stay tuned for a new series for his Quiz Night at 10.00pm.
