Car Wars

Brand new documentary series going behind the scenes with officers from the Northumbria police force who are tasked with tackling car crime. Featuring footage from across the county, from the streets of big cities to the twisting lanes of the rural beat, cameras follow officers as they face everything from opportunistic collars to complex pre-planned operations. Buckling up with traffic officers, going into detail with forensics experts and working with Northumbria's unique 'Dragoon' squad, this series explores how police go about catching criminals - and the lengths to which offenders go to avoid the long arm of the law. The relentless police work includes breath-taking, high-octane action on the roads, but also shows how car-related arrests include intriguing detective work. Investigators race against the clock to gather evidence and make sure serious charges stick while officers deploy special tactics to stop burglars in their tracks.
