Evolution of Policing and how acting out roles has changed

Company members have served within many police managerial ranks, leaving them well equipped to ensure your stories include both the tactical management of policing and the many logistical issues encountered in the modern police service.

Our narratives reflect real community needs in policing: the tensions, politics and media reporting. These issues are often integral to policing serious crime scenes and on-going investigations.

BBC's Remember Me, Five Days and U BE DEAD

So many cop shows on TV fail to get the detail and the atmosphere right. Now there’ll be no excuse! Because every writer and producer can lift the phone and ask for help from two senior detectives with a sense of fun and creativity to match their years of experience in criminal investigation.”

Bancroft, Mr Selfridge

“It was great to work with Malcolm and his team on Bancroft. They combine different specialisations and between them have great scope and understanding of all things police. Apart from getting the much needed detail right, Malcolm can appreciate that sometimes in television we have to take imaginative leaps – and he is more than happy to take that leap with you. Cops on Film and TV helped the production enormously, and I would have no hesitation in using their services again and recommending them to others.”

The Bay

I worked with Cops in Film and TV on my ITV crime drama The Bay. Malcolm and Paul were an integral part of the show, from script development through to production. Their hands-on experience of police work was invaluable to me as a writer, and to the whole cast and crew. These guys really know what they’re talking about when it comes to the realities of police procedure – but they’re equally at home with the requirements of drama and storytelling. So often on The Bay they were able to think on their feet and come up with imaginative solutions to story questions. And they’re also an absolute pleasure to work with, with a wealth of stories from the front line of police work and a wicked, p**s-taking sense of humour. Above all they have a real passion for their mission to bring authenticity to crime drama. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
