Police Interceptors is back, with no holds barred access to the elite crime fighting teams of one of the highest crime areas of the UK: West Yorkshire.
With this proud region seeing criminal activity spiralling, the interceptors use every tool in their arsenal: from the latest in Taser technology, high end pursuit cars, dedicated police dogs, to specialist firearms units; these highly trained officers will stop at nothing to deliver justice to the county’s lawbreakers.
Featuring some of the most dangerous, high octane, and shocking footage ever captured on camera, Police Interceptors shows what it takes to bring order to chaos.
Interceptor Steve Oliver deals with an early morning RTC where a car has driven over a roundabout and smashed through a fence into a park. He then tracks down the suspected driver who kicks off and tries to bite officers.
Plus there’s a dangerous pursuit through Bradford’s morning rush hour, a suspect who’s believed to have swallowed drugs, a disqualified driver continually lies to the cops in an attempt to convince them she’s someone else, and a late night delivery driver with an extremely knackered motor.
Steve Oliver pulls over a drink driver who resists arrest and is PAVA sprayed.
Chris Bastow comes across a mangled motor described as a ’death trap on wheels’. The driver assures the interceptors that he won’t drive in it again, but will the temptation prove too much?
Rookie recruit Dan Ledgeway has a tricky encounter with a driver refusing to give a breath test and Interceptor Chris ‘Spenner’ Spencer is involved in a pursuit by car, and then on two wheels as he commandeers a bicycle. Later he comes under attack with eggs and stones.
Plus a fresh faced uninsured driver tries to pass himself off as his 52 year old Dad.
Reports of gun shots at a house party on a residential street leads to a full scale firearms operation. With live ammunition aimed at the house, dog handler Steve Huntington and Belgian Shepherd, Macy, are ready for runners.
Plus, Ben Barraclough switches from four wheels to two legs, and chases a wanted driver through the back streets of Keighley, Steve Oliver gets heckled by an angry driver, and during a routine stop, Chris Pursey is having a chat with a driver when his brother tries to spring him from the back of the cop car.
Dog handler Steve Huntington and the firearms team are in a dramatic doorstep showdown, in which a man is alleged to have attacked someone with an axe and a machete, inside the house they find more than they bargained for. And a stolen van makes off from officers in Leeds before nearly hitting a dog walker – its occupants then leg it and go to ground.
Plus a tactical pursuit and containment collars a disqualified driver who tries to pull the wool over the Interceptors eyes, and a tight lipped drug driver refuses to give up his mates.
In tonight’s episode, interceptors Bob Hoyle and Bo Bo Wright are in pursuit of a clapped out white van that’s ragging through the back streets. A dead end brings the van to an abrupt halt, the occupants make off on foot but the interceptors are hot on their heels.
Interceptor, Martin Willis clocks a driver smashing the speed limit at over 100 miles an hour. Banged to rights in the back of the cop car, the driver gets lippy and his attitude lands him in even more trouble
Plus, an early morning pursuit for Chris ‘Spenner’ Spencer turns into a foot chase after the driver legs it, not once, not twice, but three times. Interceptors Kev Shaw and rookie Oliver Rigby expose a cunning insurance scam, and the driver of a one hundred and twenty thousand pound supercar mysteriously disappears.
