From the cell block to the police chief, this series shows a modern police station as never seen before. Combining the drama of cops and robbers in the real world with the humanity and humour of 24 Hours in A&E, we watch the police fighting against the clock to catch out criminals and make the streets safe.

24 Hours in Police Custody is police work as you have never seen it before.
