Traffic cops and police dogs from Cleveland and Durham’s joint policing team are set to star in a new series of Channel Five’s ‘Police Interceptors’ show.

In April film crews followed officers from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit (CDSOU) for two months as they carried out drug raids, at vehicle pursuits and searches for wanted criminals and dangerous drivers.

The first programme of the new, ten-part series is on at 8pm on September 14 and will include incidents in Darlington, Thornaby and Redcar.

Police have called it a “wonderful opportunity.”
