Car Wars

This three-part series for ITV focuses on the fast lane of policing, going behind the scenes with officers from Northumbria police tasked with cutting car crime.

Featuring footage from the streets of big cities and the twisting lanes of the rural beat, cameras follow officers as they undertake everything from opportunistic collars to complex planned operations as part of the force's dedicated car crime unit Operation Dragoon.

Buckling up with traffic officers, going into detail with forensics experts, this series explores how police go about catching criminals - and the lengths to which offenders go to avoid the long arm of the law.
