Realist Scripted or not, who cares. Look at the bigger picture in that the Police are there to protect the public, and for the majority of idiots who cross their paths do so because of their own stupidness.
Overall, the Police do a fantastic job. Realist11:34am Tue 10 Jul
Best Ever Cop Series Was just reading the earlier comments and had to write in myself.
As an ex-cop from Sunderland who worked in the Met during the eighties and nineties (no body armour etc., just common sense and a sick sense of humour!) I can honestly say that watching this is like a breath of the proverbial fresh air, much needed amongst all the other copumentaries on TV.
As one viewer stated earlier, there are the odd one or two officers featured in the series that I just couldn't work with due to their shitty attitude towards the job and the public. They know who they are... and it was disgusting watching them carry on unchallenged by their colleagues. OK, everyone cocks up now and again, especially under pressure, but having been on the receiving end of some mouthy, drunken a***hole who 'pays your wages', I'm not surprised at some officers' reactions!
As in every walk of life, you get a few bad apples, so deal with it!
All in all, a great bit of viewing during which you can be laughing one minute, and shouting at the telly the next!
Pure Mint! Let's be careful out there... ;o) Pc 777BD4:34am Mon 27 Feb
Poor show Of course it's fake and I do live in the real world - I was a policeman but gave up because of all the paperwork and time wasting. Only 10% of a policeman's time is spent out and about. P.C. Correct3:45pm Thu 23 Feb
Real World Why do drunken work shy layabouts think they're above the law and can do as they please? There're are only so many times a copper will ask nicely then they'll take positive action. I'm guessing anyone who's posted a negative comment has never been in the real world. sevenseven4:57pm Wed 22 Feb
Confused.com Have I been watching a different programme to everyone else? I haven't seen anything fake or staged - they interview the bad guys too!
And as for, "all she had to do was turn her around and handcuff her" This is hilarious! Can you really see the angry drunk woman coming quietly for a copper half her size??!!
This isn't bullying, its people endangering themselves to help others - whilst Human Rights ties one arm behind their back. Joe Public11:32pm Tue 21 Feb
Who votes for this sort of show?
All these types of shows are so obviously fake that the only people who can possibly think they are any good are the coppers who fake it in the first place. Robert Peel4:08pm Mon 30 Jan
love it amazing programme gaz4:49am Mon 23 Jan
horrified The police in this series are unnecessarily confrontational and inflame the situation. I was also shocked and disgusted to see the woman in the domestic incident being pulled by the WPC onto the ground when all she had to do was turn her around and handcuff her. Police pushing people over, etc, unacceptabel! b1:14pm Sun 22 Jan
Oh Dear This show's up some police as being a bunch of swearing gang of low IQ jack-the-lads, not even behaving in a gentlemanly manner due to cameras being on them. When the cameras are off, who's there to know? Scary, they're meant to protect us.... Reaspect?2:09am Sun 22 Jan
Why do the police get involved in these TV shows? Very concerned it make sthe police look like bullies Dumfounded5:35pm Tue 17 Jan
Makes me laugh everytime Although should be more of a 'mockumentary', can tell it is scripted purely for entertainment Maximoos9:10pm Thu 14 Jul
Proper fly on the wall Awsome, what's the point in edited tv series?? They are all the same. This one shows what coppers are really like. The man on the van learnt why not to mouth off at the police. Wise people would not bother Alan6:39pm Mon 6 Dec
disgusted The impression that some of these police officers give of the force they represent is diabolical! I am a copper and would not work with some of these officers they're unprofessional and uncaring. al1119668:34pm Sun 5 Dec
man bullied man plays face,gets arrested and walks peacefuly with the copper,man gets handcuffed without risisting so copper decides to threaten him,copper take peacefull man to van,bangs him up against the van and kicks him forcing him to sit,i bet the copper was so proud of himself,i think all police must be trained to look down on the general public,shame on you big man!. crispy11:21pm Mon 29 Nov

5 Star! This is just absolutely immense, it gives people an insite as to what police officers are really like. No acting, no silliness, just pure and simple what coppers are like.
I just LOL at it, it's mint! Highly recomended. BennyBoy12:06pm Mon 22 Nov
lmao @ coppers getting the munchies after a cannabis raid. cw649:22pm Mon 15 Nov
Fat Coppers You will like this if you like to watch cops eat. db9:33pm Mon 8 Nov
No Impressed I thought this would be a documentary of a positive light. This shows police in a negative way... how would this help police officers that are serious about their job! LT019:15pm Mon 8 Nov
Another quality documentary Not to be missed. Can't wait for the next episode. Very interesting and amusing. I could watch this every day. cw6410:06pm Mon 1 Nov
