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.
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.
Meanwhile, interceptor Sophie Hawkswell finds a drunk driver and his girlfriend on a motorway embankment, having abandoned their car. When the girlfriend is taken away, he shows his true colours by propositioning Sophie in the back of the cop car. Needless to say, champion kickboxer Sophie is unimpressed with his moves.
Plus, interceptor Richard ‘Clarkie’ Clarke is forced to leg it after a Range Rover driver. The runaway disappears into some bushes and only a dose of stinging pepper spray will make the suspect comply.
Stef Lajszczuk puts pedal to the metal to help box in a suspected stolen car, and Claire Gray unleashes her secret weapon – Spanish – as she turns from Interceptor to Interpreter.
Interceptors flood a housing estate searching for suspects involved in a shooting. With a shotgun and suspects still outstanding, it needs to be a controlled operation and communication is key between firearms officers, the police helicopter and dog handler Duncan Matthews.
Plus, Steve Oliver legs it after a driver who crashes his car and makes off on foot, then is forced to use a stinger on a hire car that’s on the police hot list, and interceptors swoop on suspected shoplifters with a boot full of stolen booty.
Claire Gray and Tom Phillips deal with an abusive drunk driver who’s clueless about what he’s done wrong; rookie Omar Caines deals with a fence hopping suspect whose antics have left him with a slashed hand, and Steve Oliver’s back in action, blue lighting it to track down a VW Golf suspected of being involved in a robbery – its driver then reverses his car into a police vehicle.
Plus the interceptors deal with a double decker bus which has hit a low bridge in Bradford, taking its roof clean off, and Chris “Spenner” Spencer and Kev Shaw start their night shift with a laugh as a dodgy driver tries to pull the wool over their eyes in the most inept manner possible
In tonight’s episode interceptors Dan Robson and Tom Powell are in a high speed pursuit of a stolen Nissan Qashqai. After smashing into two innocent motorists, the four suspects scarper in opposite directions, and a dramatic foot chase ensues.
Dog handler Duncan Matthews attends a mid-night standoff between armed officers and a man who’s been seen carrying knives. The man has locked himself inside his home and is refusing to come out. Steve ‘Suggs’ Suggitt pulls over a motorist who appears incapable of telling the truth, and Kev Shaw deals with an incoherent drink driver who, after smashing his car through a dry stone wall, blows almost 4 times over the legal limit.
And finally, a man is left red-faced after the luxury Range Rover he was off-roading ends up written off and stuck in a ditch. Veteran interceptor ‘Charlie’ Farley is given the unenviable task of Range Rover removal.
In tonight’s episode, interceptors Carl ‘Charlie’ Farley and Wayne Hutchison are in high speed pursuit of an Astra van.
The driver turns road works wrecker, crashes the car and runs off into the night, but will they corner their quarry?
With the help of a tracker the Interceptors hunt down a 17 year old suspect of a serious robbery, and Dan Pennington is forced into a daylight pursuit of a Ford Focus with a shocking outcome.
Plus, Matt Ransom and Brimmers are on the hunt for the driver of a £300,000 Rolls Royce who’s suspected of being under the influence, and the language barriers are up as a suspected drink driver can’t understand the word ‘blow’.
