The series follows Met officers working in a range of specialised units from those investigating homicide, sexual offences, policing protests ahead of the first visit of President Trump, through to frontline officers responding to calls from the public.

Following the critically acclaimed success of two previous seasons, the Met has again allowed cameras extraordinary access to the UK’s biggest and busiest police force.

The aim of the series is to allow the public an exclusive and behind-the-scenes view of the Met and show how the men and women of the Met are working day and night to keep London safe. Filming for the current series took place throughout 2018, when London experienced high levels of violence, knife crime and homicide and therefore strikes a more sombre tone than previous episodes.

The Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said: “The documentary allowed the Met to open our doors to millions of people and tell the diverse stories of how we police London.

“The makers filmed us as they found us, because we wanted to ensure viewers saw the real Met.

“The documentary again captures the caring and committed approach of our officers and staff who opened up their working life so the public could get a real insight as they responded through the highs and lows of policing this extraordinary city and I am sure it will surprise, entertain as well as inform people about the complexities we face.

“Once again, the Met did not have editorial control allowing an unfiltered and transparent account of the enormous undertaking that is policing a large, diverse and dynamic Capital city.”
