Find out why

Eight years have passed since Rav Wilding left the police and became a television presenter, but he is happy to return to his former life. In the third episode in the series, Rav joins the unit as they prepare to execute an arrest warrant. It becomes a real blast from the past for Rav when a routine collar turns into a good old-fashioned foot pursuit through the streets of Southend. Special Ops officers then have to carry out a painstaking search of a suspected drug-user's flat.

The Response and Patrol Unit launches into action when a deaf man reports that he has been burgled during the night. Elsewhere, Rav is far from impressed when a shift in an unmarked car uncovers a man with only a provisional driving licence, people who cannot stop using their mobile phones and a suspected drunk driver whose keys were confiscated by a road worker.

    Dear watcher’s, these puppets does not know what they are talking about, I was on the phone and yet they got it so so wrong I was on the phone only when they spotted me right at the beginning, they had nothing on me and did not even get court. The SAAB 900 Turbo owner.
