Some of the newest officers of Lincolnshire Police will be the subject of a three-part ITV series, Rookies, staring tonight (Monday) at 9pm.
Peter Davies, Assistant Chief Constable Local Policing said: “As a Force we have gained much benefit from opening the doors to ‘reality’ broadcasting and the way our officers come across on shows such as Police Interceptors is a huge asset to our reputation and our ability to engage with the public. I have no doubt that the series will attract a lot of viewers and that the reputation of policing in the county will be further enhanced.”
Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick also voiced his support for Rookies.
He said: “I have spent 30 years working in the media industry and I know what makes good television. Quite frankly, I wish I had made this documentary. It’s an honest, true reflection of our rookies and their training. The production company, and the Officers and staff involved, are to be complimented. I am sure the people of Lincolnshire will be impressed. It shows the human side of policing, which is really what it’s all about.”
