A major new documentary series showing the work of Derbyshire officers begins to air tonight.
Police: Hour of Duty takes a real-time look at the work of the force between 9pm and 10pm – showing everything from drugs warrants to domestic incidents and assaults.
The program, which is now in its second series, was initially commissioned for a run of four episodes of Channel 5. During its 2020 run, the series saw more than 2 million people view each episode, topping the channels ratings chart.
Chief Constable Rachel Swann said: “The first series of Hour of Duty was a huge success for the force and gave a fresh insight into the hard work of officers across the county.
“This new series, which will run for 12 episodes, will be just as well-received and provide a welcome dose of reality for the public about the pressures on the officers and staff.
“I would like to thank all those who helped make this series happen – especially those officers and staff who agreed to be on camera and allow the program makers to capture such excellent footage.”
The first episode airs tonight (27 October) on Channel 5 at 9pm and is available to catch up on My 5.
