Cinema Commercial Makes BBC Headline News

Heading Divider


The aim of the #itswhatwedo campaign is to raise public awareness of the extraordinary job Police Officers do, and to keep policing high on the agenda in the run up to the recent referendum and May 2015 elections. The police films place the viewer in the boots of three police officers and ask ‘What would you do in their shoes’?
