UKTV has commissioned a new observational documentary coming to Dave, Cops on The Rock, which follows the adventures of the Royal Gibraltar Police.
Cops on The Rock takes an in-depth look at the work of the Royal Gibraltar Police, who tackle everything from the growing threat of terrorism, to investigating murders, burglaries and fraud.
The series will also look at how the police patrol and protect Gibraltar’s international waters, airport, port and land border with Spain.
Produced by Rare TV, the series will go behind the scenes of a unique part of British policing and will allow viewers to join the Marine Unit safeguarding the coastline, the Border Force and police officers on the streets.
“It’s a compelling watch and shines a light on a little-known area of the British police force,” said UKTV’s senior commissioning editor Helen Nightingale.
She added: “Rare TV is taking us on a fascinating journey with Gibraltar’s Royal Police Force as it works tirelessly to apprehend drug smugglers crossing the Straits of Gibraltar, intercept oil tankers flouting international law, deal with juvenile crime, and prevent potentially deadly terrorist attacks.”
Cops on The Rocks has begun filming in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines.
