Officers and staff in Brighton will be in the spotlight once more in an ITV documentary.

Starting tonight (Thursday August 17), ITV will air two hour-long episodes of The Brighton Police, a follow-up to 2015’s The Nick.

Filmed in 2016, the show follows officers and staff working on a variety of different cases including a series of armed robberies, the investigation into a drugs gang operating within the city and an attempted rape.

Former Divisional Commander for Brighton and Hove, now Assistant Chief Constable at Surrey Police, Nev Kemp said: “Following on from the success of The Nick and the overwhelmingly positive response from the public, we decided to open our doors once more and invite the cameras back in.

“I am pleased with what the film-makers have captured, it shows the typical professionalism and dedication of the officers and staff who are doing a job like no other and are committed to keeping the City of Brighton and Hove safe.

“The first series captured the diverse and sometimes more unusual situations that officers often find themselves in and this series will build upon this. Viewers will be given an insight into the complex and sometimes frustrating cases officers face but also their determination and commitment to keeping people safe and achieving justice for victims. The programme shows the reality of what it really means to police a vibrant and unique city such as Brighton.”

The Brighton Police will feature viewer’s favourite from series one, Detective Sergeant Julie Greenwood, as well as some new faces as they work tirelessly to keep the streets of Brighton and Hove safe.
