Scottish Police Federation: It’s What We Do

Police - Awareness Campaign - Cinema and Digital Distribution
A groundbreaking campaign commissioned by the Scottish Police Federation to challenge public perceptions of the police.
The #ItsWhatWeDo campaign consists of a series of incredibly powerful videos detailing the difficult decisions police officers are faced with every day; it puts the viewer in the shoes of police officers.

The initial commission was for three videos, each putting you in the shoes of police officers, who are facing impossible decisions, and asking you, the viewer, what you would do if you were this officer. Such was the success of the videos that a new concept under the same hashtag was commissioned two years later.

All four videos were extremely well received, with tremendous support and encouragement flooding in across social media, and vocal backing from notable Scottish politicians and media platforms, such as the BBC and The Guardian.
“I saw a lot of Sam Taylor’s work and TINKER TAYLOR’s other work at various conferences, and I have always been remarkably impressed by the sheer level of professionalism. I was confident that if I engaged with Tinker Taylor, I would have a product on the other side of it that I would be proud of."

Calum Steele - General Secretary, Scottish Police Federation
“Having seen the finished product, and what it is producing via social media and the response we are getting from the general public, it has absolutely exceeded our wildest expectations.”

David Ross - Vice Chairman, Scottish Police Federation
