Smart technology & specialist tactics: transforming policing in the 21st century.

Series 1 10 x 45'
Series 2 10 x 45'

In a very different look at law-enforcement, we show how the police and local authorities are using artificial intelligence and digital technology to prevent crime and bring offenders to justice.  

The series features an array of equipment, including cameras that can spot crimes almost before they happen, software that can quickly identify repeat offenders, sophisticated satellite tracking and hi-tech drones fitted with heat-seeking technology.  

While police forces across the UK embrace this technology, we also look at how tech companies and universities work on developing crime-fighting technologies that, it’s hoped, will continue to transform policing in the 21st century.
