An angry environmentalist who stripped completely naked at the front desk, and a prisoner who hid Class A drugs in his body, will feature in Channel 5’s new four-part series focusing on Lincolnshire Police.
The under pressure team are abused and assaulted and have to deal with sexual and racially aggravated assaults, as well as a host of other crimes, in ‘Inside The Force: 24/7’, which will air at 9pm on Monday, March 23.
The first episode focuses on custody, including a Friday night reveller who headbutts one of the arresting officers.
It is then scheduled to air every Monday after for three weeks – March 30, April 6 and April 13.
The show, which is produced by Mentorn Media, follows the work of the officers inside Lincolnshire Police’s former West Parade station, which closed in November 2019 before police joined ambulance and fire crews at the first tri-service operational station in the country at South Park in Lincoln.
The crimes are followed from various perspectives, including response units to CID and from custody to the force control room.
The final three episodes include a flat that resembles a murder scene, a dangerous man on the run from prison, a missing person search, a large fight outside a nightclub and Sergeant Mike Templeman being bitten on the leg by a man alleging he has Hepatitis C.
