The Wanted

The Wanted

At the start of each shift, the Serious Organised Crime Group police officers consult their list. It contains the names of all the wanted criminals in the area, suspected of a whole variety of offences, from burglary and assault to drug dealing.

In this observational documentary series, officers wear special filming equipment to bring viewers closer to the action than ever before. It joins them on high-octane chases and house-raids as they put their own safety at risk to take criminals off the streets - and sees them round up foreign criminals wanted for offences in their own countries, before putting them on planes back home, where justice awaits.
