Mondays at 9pm

Up to 1000 incidents per day, resources cut by 15% since 2010, and one incident manager with overall command. This is policing in 2019. For the first time, this series goes inside the nerve centre of policing - the police communications and control centre colloquially known as Force Control - to shed fresh light on the changing face of law and order in modern Britain. With violent and complex crimes on the rise across the UK, an increasing number of emergencies, and fewer resources to deal with them, this series shows the critical decisions made in Control and on the ground in Devon and Cornwall, the largest geographical policing area in England.
