We're throwing the doors of Cop School open

0:00:020:00:04

for six cadets to train with London's Metropolitan Police Force.

0:00:040:00:08

I was in the Met for eight years, take it from me,

0:00:080:00:10

this is NOT going to be easy.

0:00:100:00:12

For the first time ever, our cadets tackle rioters,

0:00:120:00:16

biters and barkers, crime scenes,

0:00:160:00:19

boats and cars.

0:00:190:00:21

I'm Rav Wilding, THIS is Cop School.

0:00:210:00:25

Six wannabe coppers...

0:00:270:00:29

..meet the world's oldest police force.

0:00:300:00:33

Their mission?

0:00:330:00:35

To complete a unique training course.

0:00:350:00:39

But are these cadets tough enough to cut it in the Met?

0:00:390:00:42

The Met Police work 24/7 to keep the capital's streets safe.

0:00:460:00:51

London is a huge city of seven and a half million people.

0:00:510:00:55

And with one crime committed every minute,

0:00:550:00:58

it's not a job for the faint-hearted.

0:00:580:01:00

These kids are wanted by the police,

0:01:000:01:03

not for committing crimes though,

0:01:030:01:05

they've been hand-picked by CBBC to become cadets at Cop School

0:01:050:01:10

and are travelling to London from across the UK

0:01:100:01:13

to take on the challenge.

0:01:130:01:15

I'm really excited about Cop School, I can't wait to get going.

0:01:150:01:18

I always approach a challenge head-first, straight in,

0:01:190:01:22

give it my full blow, give it my best.

0:01:220:01:24

I don't think I'll really struggle, because I know what's coming, yeah?

0:01:240:01:28

And I think I'm ready for it.

0:01:280:01:31

I'm not scared of anything, so whatever's thrown at me,

0:01:310:01:33

I'll just try and take it.

0:01:330:01:35

I'm a bit nervous about the training,

0:01:350:01:37

but I'll just get in there and do what I need to do.

0:01:370:01:40

It's really important to me to try and always be a winner and...

0:01:400:01:44

I like to be the best.

0:02:080:02:10

Well, morning, cadets.

0:02:130:02:15

My name's Rav and I'm going to be with you

0:02:150:02:17

throughout your entire journey here at Cop School.

0:02:170:02:21

But to make that tough transformation from kids to cops,

0:02:210:02:25

your training has got to start right here, right now.

0:02:250:02:28

I want you to make your way to the Parade Square which is on there,

0:02:280:02:32

where you will be met.

0:02:320:02:34

Thing is, I know exactly who they're going to meet

0:02:340:02:38

and he's very, very scary.

0:02:380:02:40

It's Drill Sgt Peter Clements.

0:02:400:02:43

He's all about three things -

0:02:430:02:46

discipline, discipline and discipline.

0:02:460:02:49

What a motley crew we have here.

0:02:500:02:52

Take your hands out your pockets and listen to what I'm saying today.

0:02:520:02:56

-Got that? CADETS:

-Yes, Sir!

0:02:560:02:57

Why are you wearing an earring? Why are you wearing a necklace?

0:02:570:03:01

What's all these bangles?

0:03:010:03:02

We're here at Cop School,

0:03:020:03:06

you're here to represent the service you've joined.

0:03:060:03:08

The standard you're at at the moment

0:03:080:03:10

is not the standard we're looking for.

0:03:100:03:12

Do I make myself clear?

0:03:120:03:14

-CADETS:

-Yes, Sir!

0:03:140:03:15

-Why are you laughing saying "yes, Sir"?

-I'm a bit nervous.

0:03:150:03:18

-I do no expect you to laugh when you're with me, understood?

-Yes, Sir.

0:03:180:03:22

The drill sergeant's really mean, but I think it's for a purpose,

0:03:220:03:26

so we can learn more off him.

0:03:260:03:27

He was like staring at me, I was like, "Oh..."

0:03:270:03:31

OK. Right, then. Marching.

0:03:310:03:34

I'm going to give a word of command which is "quick march".

0:03:340:03:37

And all I want you to do, start tapping your toes,

0:03:370:03:40

when I say, "Left, right, left, right, left."

0:03:400:03:43

-Got that?

-Yes, Sir!

0:03:430:03:45

On the left! Quick march!

0:03:450:03:47

Marching is the first thing that every police officer learns.

0:03:470:03:51

It teaches discipline, standards and teamwork.

0:03:510:03:54

A few of them are out of step already.

0:03:540:03:56

Left! You're out of step in the white shoes, get your toes in time

0:03:560:04:00

with the rate of speed called out.

0:04:000:04:02

Now, we're going to continue the motion, but on this occasion,

0:04:020:04:05

start raising your feet off the ground, got that?

0:04:050:04:07

-Yes, Sir!

-Got that?

-Yes, Sir!

0:04:070:04:10

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left!

0:04:100:04:14

Get the knees up! Up!

0:04:140:04:17

It looks easy, but trust me, that's a lot harder than it looks

0:04:170:04:21

and it brings back a lot of memories.

0:04:210:04:24

Sgt Clements taught me to march when I was at Hendon,

0:04:250:04:28

so I know how tough he is.

0:04:280:04:30

Stand still there!

0:04:300:04:31

Well, Sam just managed two whole steps

0:04:310:04:33

before being abruptly stopped by Clements.

0:04:330:04:36

Why were you standing there like that,

0:04:360:04:38

marching as if you're crushing grapes?

0:04:380:04:40

Ooh, he's not happy.

0:04:400:04:43

-Dig the heels into the ground, got that?

-Yes, Sir.

0:04:430:04:45

By the left! Quick march!

0:04:450:04:47

Right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left!

0:04:470:04:52

Yeah, my impression of him shouting, he didn't even sound English,

0:04:520:04:55

he was like, Uh! Oh! Uh! Oh! Leh! Rah!

0:04:550:04:58

Leh! Right! Left! Raise your chins, look up!

0:04:580:05:01

Serge was very strict. And he kind of scared me a little bit.

0:05:010:05:04

I think we do have a lot of hard work in store

0:05:040:05:07

and I'm really looking forward to it.

0:05:070:05:09

-How do you think they're getting on?

-Well, it's hard work.

0:05:090:05:12

I just want that little bit more, more effort.

0:05:120:05:14

Get these arms up high!

0:05:140:05:16

Looks as though they've got off to a shaky start.

0:05:160:05:19

But they need to step up their game

0:05:190:05:21

because they're about to be transformed from kids

0:05:210:05:24

to Cop School cadets.

0:05:240:05:26

Raise your chins, everyone! Look up!

0:05:260:05:28

-Well, once the sergeant's finished with them.

-Look up!

0:05:280:05:31

OK, then, guys. You are now about to be sworn in as Cop School cadets,

0:05:350:05:41

just as I did when I trained here as a police officer.

0:05:410:05:45

Now once you've taken this oath, that'll give you the powers

0:05:450:05:48

to arrest any of the Cop School criminals.

0:05:480:05:51

OK. This is one of the most important moments

0:05:510:05:55

for any police officer.

0:05:550:05:57

Come on.

0:05:570:05:58

This is a very, very important day for you.

0:05:590:06:03

Do you understand that?

0:06:030:06:04

-CADETS:

-Yes.

0:06:040:06:05

-What's your first name?

-Junior.

0:06:050:06:07

Nathan.

0:06:070:06:08

Megan.

0:06:080:06:09

Sam.

0:06:090:06:10

-Jade.

-Rebecca.

0:06:100:06:12

Boys and girls, this is the last time I will call you boys and girls,

0:06:120:06:15

because once you've read this attestation, you will be cadets.

0:06:150:06:19

As from one, two, three...

0:06:190:06:23

-CADETS:

-I do solemnly declare that I will well and truly serve the Queen

0:06:230:06:29

in the office of a Cop School cadet

0:06:290:06:32

with fairness and integrity and that I will to the best

0:06:320:06:36

of my skill and knowledge perform all these duties faithfully

0:06:360:06:40

according to the law.

0:06:400:06:42

Well done, cadets.

0:06:420:06:44

I'm very proud to be here at the start of your career.

0:06:440:06:47

You'll be issued with your warrant cards

0:06:470:06:50

by the good Sgt Heap at the back there.

0:06:500:06:52

These warrant cards are very powerful instruments.

0:06:520:06:56

It gives you the power to do your duty as cadets.

0:06:560:06:59

-Do you understand that? CADETS:

-Yes.

0:06:590:07:01

OK.

0:07:010:07:03

Leave now, get your warrant card and go and be good police cadets.

0:07:030:07:08

I'm proud of you. Good day.

0:07:080:07:10

Feels amazing to be, like, a Cop School cadet now,

0:07:250:07:28

I've made it through, I'm dead happy with myself.

0:07:280:07:31

With all these new uniforms, it's just amazing.

0:07:310:07:34

I feel great.

0:07:340:07:35

It makes you feel like part of the police and you're like, "Oh, yeah!"

0:07:350:07:39

Congratulations, team.

0:07:390:07:42

It's official, you're Cop School cadets.

0:07:420:07:44

# Come with me. #

0:07:440:07:45

They now have the powers of arrest,

0:07:500:07:52

but need to learn how to use them.

0:07:520:07:55

If I said "theft" to you, what does it mean?

0:07:550:07:57

If somebody took something off of you,

0:07:570:08:00

what questions would you ask?

0:08:000:08:01

PC Sandy Clifford teaches them the police caution

0:08:010:08:04

which is used every time a criminal is arrested.

0:08:040:08:07

We like to get it word-perfect.

0:08:070:08:09

They have to get it spot-on as it tells suspects their rights.

0:08:090:08:13

Get it wrong, and dangerous criminals could walk free.

0:08:130:08:17

-You do not have to say anything...

-You do not have to say anything...

0:08:170:08:21

Anything you do say may be given in evidence.

0:08:210:08:23

Anything that you mention... That you may...

0:08:230:08:28

It's a massive amount of information they've got to take on.

0:08:280:08:31

If they don't get it right now,

0:08:310:08:33

they're really, really going to struggle in tomorrow's challenge.

0:08:330:08:37

In less than 24-hours time,

0:08:370:08:40

the cadets will have to deal with this Cop School crime.

0:08:400:08:43

Oi!

0:08:430:08:44

Get off the bike!

0:08:440:08:46

Arresting the correct guilty party

0:08:460:08:48

will require them to put into practice

0:08:480:08:50

all the skills they learnt from training.

0:08:500:08:53

I looked round and he was coming down with my bike.

0:08:530:08:56

So it's vital the pay attention in the classroom.

0:08:560:08:58

Observation is vital when you're a copper.

0:08:580:09:01

You have to be on guard 24/7.

0:09:010:09:04

While the cadets are testing each other on the phonetic alphabet,

0:09:040:09:08

we're putting their observational skills to the test.

0:09:080:09:11

B for bravo.

0:09:110:09:13

In order to watch what happens when we leave the room,

0:09:130:09:15

we rigged the classroom up with CCTV cameras.

0:09:150:09:18

That's it, Megan, help him out.

0:09:200:09:22

And as Sandy and I leave the room,

0:09:220:09:24

keep your eye out for something suspicious.

0:09:240:09:27

CADETS CHAT INDISTINCTLY

0:09:270:09:30

It's daylight robbery.

0:09:450:09:47

But did our cadets even notice?

0:09:470:09:49

Time for us to return.

0:09:490:09:51

Crikey! Folks, folks.

0:09:510:09:54

-Guys...

-Where's the machine?

0:09:540:09:55

-Where's the computer?

-The lady just took it.

0:09:550:09:58

Who did? No, no, we need that.

0:09:580:10:00

Who's taken it?

0:10:000:10:01

This blonde woman.

0:10:010:10:03

-Did anyone ask her any questions?

-She just came in and took it.

0:10:030:10:07

She just came in and, like, looked at us and then...

0:10:070:10:10

She looked at you, did she? So the best thing

0:10:100:10:12

is if I can get your description, folks.

0:10:120:10:15

That would help me to catch this woman.

0:10:150:10:17

She was probably only about Rav's-shoulder height.

0:10:170:10:20

Blonde hair in a plait and it was crimped.

0:10:200:10:22

-How old are you, Junior?

-13.

-How old do you think this lady was?

0:10:220:10:26

-She was about 18.

-Late 20s.

0:10:260:10:27

-25 at most.

-What about at the back, Megan? Jade? Did you see anything?

0:10:290:10:33

-She didn't see anything.

-We didn't even see her come in.

0:10:330:10:36

At least Megan's honest.

0:10:360:10:37

Junior? Nothing?

0:10:370:10:39

But can the cadets pick the suspect out of this photo line-up?

0:10:390:10:44

Have a look at these,

0:10:460:10:47

how many have we got here? One, two, three...

0:10:470:10:49

-It's her, cos she had her hair crimped.

-This one?

0:10:490:10:52

Rebecca is straight onto her.

0:10:520:10:54

-Closely resembles this one.

-She had more blonde hair than brown.

0:10:540:10:59

-Nathan, is this the lady you thought had the evil stare?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:10:590:11:04

It was her or her.

0:11:040:11:05

-REBECCA:

-I think it's her.

0:11:050:11:07

-She looked skinnier and smaller, like...

-Crimped.

0:11:070:11:09

Hold on, Megan, I thought you didn't see her come in?

0:11:090:11:12

Let's have a show of hands, who thinks this could be the suspect?

0:11:120:11:16

Two people.

0:11:160:11:18

So how many think it could be this one? Four.

0:11:180:11:21

OK. Let's find out who she is.

0:11:210:11:23

And the criminal is...

0:11:260:11:28

-Hello.

-Hello.

0:11:280:11:31

Before this, I probably would have said I was an observant person.

0:11:310:11:35

But I wasn't.

0:11:350:11:36

The thing I've learnt today is you need to listen and be observant.

0:11:360:11:40

Observation is so important working with the police.

0:11:400:11:42

Criminals will strike when they think you're not paying attention.

0:11:420:11:46

Whilst we've been talking, did anyone notice someone come in

0:11:460:11:50

and steal all those radios off the desk behind you? Ah!

0:11:500:11:53

It's day two and action time for our cadets.

0:11:590:12:02

You've got to be super fit if you want to be a copper.

0:12:020:12:05

Our cadets are going to be

0:12:050:12:07

facing extreme physical challenges in this series,

0:12:070:12:10

including riot control, police-dog handling

0:12:100:12:13

and car accidents.

0:12:130:12:14

And they need to be tough in mind and body.

0:12:140:12:17

-Morning, team.

-CADETS:

-Morning!

0:12:170:12:20

Right, training is now about to get a lot tougher,

0:12:200:12:23

and certainly a lot more physical.

0:12:230:12:25

Good morning, team, my name's Brad.

0:12:250:12:27

Before we start, health and safety - we must take jewellery off.

0:12:270:12:31

What?! Have they forgotten yesterday's lesson already?

0:12:310:12:35

Why are you wearing an earring? Why are you wearing a necklace?

0:12:350:12:40

And there's still something rather large in your ear, Junior.

0:12:400:12:43

I can't believe just a day after Pete Clements picked them up

0:12:430:12:46

for wearing jewellery, they've done it again.

0:12:460:12:49

They've got to buck up their ideas.

0:12:490:12:51

Take your handcuffs out for me.

0:12:510:12:53

Handcuffs can seriously hurt people if they're not put on properly.

0:12:530:12:57

Get it wrong, the cuffs can pinch, cut or even break bones.

0:12:570:13:02

You're under arrest. Can I see your hands, both sides? Look away,

0:13:020:13:05

hands out to the sides, palms facing the floor, spread your legs.

0:13:050:13:08

My voice is nice and loud, it's assertive.

0:13:080:13:11

So raise your voice slightly.

0:13:110:13:12

Good balanced stance, cuffs come out, I make that C-shape with my hand,

0:13:120:13:17

I line them up

0:13:170:13:18

and I push the two together.

0:13:180:13:19

Bring the other hand round, touch this elbow for me.

0:13:190:13:22

-How do those cuffs feel?

-Comfortable.

0:13:220:13:24

Any questions, team? Good. Spread yourselves out. Away you go.

0:13:240:13:28

Can you...put your han... Arms out for me?

0:13:280:13:30

Confident?

0:13:300:13:32

Can I see your hands?

0:13:320:13:33

Decisive?

0:13:330:13:34

Come on, girls.

0:13:340:13:36

And the other side, facing down, spread your legs, turn away.

0:13:360:13:40

Spreading out the suspect's arms and legs means you can keep

0:13:400:13:43

a safe distance and stop getting hit or kicked during the arrest.

0:13:430:13:47

Sorry!

0:13:470:13:48

At least, that's the idea.

0:13:480:13:51

There we go, this hand comes down, tightens it up. Good. Well done.

0:13:540:13:59

-I found the handcuff thing so much fun.

-Really cool.

0:13:590:14:01

They can't move.

0:14:010:14:03

Can I see your hands? Both sides.

0:14:030:14:05

It's looking good. Looking good, Junior.

0:14:050:14:07

They seem to be doing well on the handcuff lesson.

0:14:070:14:10

They've taken the safety message on board,

0:14:100:14:13

Junior was almost holding Megan's hand.

0:14:130:14:15

But Sam and Nathan really seem to be getting to grips

0:14:150:14:18

with the handcuffs - they're looking really good.

0:14:180:14:21

Legs spread. Face to your left.

0:14:210:14:22

Handcuff training was amazing.

0:14:220:14:24

If I had to handcuff someone now, it'd be really easy.

0:14:240:14:27

Hmmm, really? Big talk, Nathan.

0:14:270:14:30

I hope he is confident, cos very soon

0:14:300:14:33

all the cadets are going to have to arrest this Cop School criminal.

0:14:330:14:37

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:14:370:14:39

But first, trainer Fiona is going to make things harder.

0:14:390:14:42

Come on, folks, let's go. Keep going - don't look at me.

0:14:420:14:45

If you can talk, you're not working hard enough.

0:14:450:14:47

She's going to push them to their physical limits.

0:14:470:14:50

Handcuffing won't be as easy when they're completely out of breath.

0:14:500:14:54

Keep going. Keep going.

0:14:540:14:57

-I'm hating every single sit-up.

-Folks, change.

0:14:570:15:00

-This is fun!

-Junior, back on the run.

0:15:000:15:04

-Go, go, go!

-OK, it's not so fun now.

0:15:040:15:06

Don't look at me. Concentrate on what you're doing.

0:15:060:15:10

Who's standing out at the moment? Junior.

0:15:100:15:12

Tremendously positive attitude.

0:15:120:15:14

He's really, really giving it his all.

0:15:140:15:17

Nathan's standing out because

0:15:170:15:19

I've had a little bit of attitude from him,

0:15:190:15:21

um, because he's starting to get tired.

0:15:210:15:23

Yeah? I don't want to see any negative attitude.

0:15:230:15:26

Right, we're going to go again. I'm watching you.

0:15:260:15:29

-I didn't really like the training woman.

-I'm horrible!

-Yeah!

0:15:290:15:34

But at the end, she was quite nice to us.

0:15:340:15:37

Come on - it's only pain. You know you love it.

0:15:370:15:40

And me.

0:15:400:15:42

The cadets have been working out hard

0:15:450:15:47

and now it's time to test their powers of arrest.

0:15:470:15:50

We're about to put everything the cadets have learned so far

0:15:500:15:54

to the test - everything about assertiveness, about handcuffing,

0:15:540:15:58

and also cautioning a suspect.

0:15:580:16:00

-First up, Junior.

-So, round the corner here is a man

0:16:000:16:05

who is wanted for theft of a laptop. You need to arrest him

0:16:050:16:08

-and handcuff him. OK, do you understand?

-Yeah.

-OK, away you go.

0:16:080:16:12

Now, can he remember everything he's been taught?

0:16:140:16:16

-Excuse me, um... I'm here to arrest you.

-For what?

0:16:180:16:22

He's got to be exact.

0:16:220:16:24

-For theft.

-Theft of what?

0:16:240:16:25

-Laptop.

-Don't know anything about that.

0:16:250:16:28

-Can I see you arms?

-I'm happy with my arms folded, thank you.

0:16:280:16:31

-I said, "Can I see your arms."

-Be assertive, Junior.

0:16:320:16:35

Arms out, please. Legs. Turn your face that way.

0:16:350:16:40

Can you have your arms touching your elbow, please?

0:16:410:16:45

I haven't done anything wrong.

0:16:450:16:47

-You will explain that in the police station.

-Nicely done.

0:16:470:16:51

I think I got most of the things I had to do right,

0:16:510:16:53

cos it's all a big shock and I was almost shaking!

0:16:530:16:57

Next up, it's Jade. New cadet, new crime.

0:16:590:17:01

Jade was a bit quiet earlier. Will she be more assertive now?

0:17:010:17:05

-Show me your hands.

-No, I don't want to.

-Show me your hands, please.

0:17:050:17:09

She's not phased by Danny at all.

0:17:090:17:11

-I'm happy like this.

-Are you hiding something?

-No.

0:17:110:17:14

Spread your legs.

0:17:140:17:15

OK, can you touch your elbow with your other hand, please?

0:17:170:17:20

-Thank you.

-Well done, Jade. Assertive, yet polite.

0:17:200:17:25

I was a bit scared, but I'm hoping I did it all perfectly,

0:17:250:17:28

up to their standards.

0:17:280:17:30

Let's see if the others are as good as Jade.

0:17:300:17:32

Not another copper. What do you want?

0:17:320:17:34

-I'm arresting you for criminal damage.

-You stole a mountain bike.

0:17:340:17:38

You're arrested for shoplifting.

0:17:380:17:40

-I haven't done that.

-You have.

-I haven't.

-You sure?

0:17:400:17:43

-You sure?

-Yeah, I'm sure.

-Well, I'm just going to arrest you anyway.

0:17:430:17:47

Um, not quite right, Rebecca.

0:17:470:17:48

I think I would have to be more assertive,

0:17:480:17:51

strict, loud, maybe a little bit more confident.

0:17:510:17:54

-Not a bad call.

-Face the wall, show me your palms.

0:17:540:17:57

Sam showed confidence and assertiveness.

0:17:570:18:00

I found it quite scary, cos the bloke's quite high.

0:18:000:18:03

-I haven't done anything.

-How do you know you haven't?

0:18:030:18:06

I'm just waiting for a friend and you're sticking your nose in.

0:18:060:18:09

What's your friend's name?

0:18:090:18:10

Barry.

0:18:100:18:12

You can't kid this cadet.

0:18:130:18:15

I am really feeling proud of myself.

0:18:150:18:17

I just arrested a man who's twice the size of me.

0:18:170:18:20

-Can you show me your hands?

-I'm all right here, thanks.

0:18:200:18:23

But can you please show me your hands?

0:18:230:18:25

Megan seems surprisingly calm under pressure.

0:18:250:18:28

My heart was going really, really fast.

0:18:280:18:30

Despite her fears, she pulls off a successful arrest,

0:18:300:18:34

but Nathan's also got an attack of the nerves.

0:18:340:18:36

-I don't know what to do.

-Yeah, you do.

0:18:360:18:38

The scariest part of it was when I got confronted with the criminal

0:18:380:18:41

and he was giving grief to me.

0:18:410:18:43

Although he did show great attention to detail.

0:18:430:18:46

I've got descriptions of you with a goatee, black top, no hair...

0:18:460:18:49

-He won't like that!

-I think I need to work harder.

0:18:490:18:52

So after just a morning's training,

0:18:520:18:54

all six cadets have conquered the cuffs.

0:18:540:18:57

Every week on Cop School, I'll be choosing one of the cadets

0:19:010:19:04

to step up to the plate and lead the team in the Cop School Challenge.

0:19:040:19:07

This person has the potential to make a very thoughtful

0:19:070:19:11

and assertive team leader.

0:19:110:19:13

So, the team leader is...

0:19:130:19:15

Sam.

0:19:150:19:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:160:19:18

I'm ecstatic about being chosen to be team leader,

0:19:180:19:21

leading such a special group of people.

0:19:210:19:23

So, Sam, this is for you. This is your leader cam.

0:19:230:19:26

So, everything that you see now, we see as well.

0:19:270:19:31

I'm feeling nervous about leading people,

0:19:310:19:33

but not nervous about what's coming up next.

0:19:330:19:36

Hi! Can I just look into it?

0:19:370:19:40

SHOUTING AND LAUGHING

0:19:410:19:44

With Sam at the helm, it's time for today's main challenge.

0:19:470:19:50

We're driving our cadets to investigate a Cop School crime

0:19:500:19:54

about to take place in a local park.

0:19:540:19:56

They have to assess the situation, question the suspects,

0:19:560:20:00

and, ultimately, arrest any criminals.

0:20:000:20:02

As our cadets travel to the scene, here's what's happening.

0:20:030:20:07

Michael Jeavons, a tradesman working in the local area,

0:20:080:20:12

has arrived at the park on his bike and chained it to the railings.

0:20:120:20:15

He doesn't know he's being watched by two criminals -

0:20:170:20:20

-a girl and a boy.

-PHONE RINGS

0:20:200:20:24

Thinking his bike is secure, Michael takes a call on his mobile phone.

0:20:240:20:28

And he walks off, leaving his bag and his bike unattended.

0:20:300:20:33

Time for the thief to step in.

0:20:350:20:37

With his accomplice watching his back, he approaches the bike,

0:20:370:20:40

cuts the chain, then slips his own bag inside Michael's rucksack

0:20:400:20:45

and takes off with the lot.

0:20:450:20:47

Over 50 bikes are stolen in Greater London every day,

0:20:480:20:52

so can our cadets stop this one becoming another statistic?

0:20:520:20:56

Oh... Oi!

0:20:570:21:00

What are you doing? Get off the bike!

0:21:030:21:05

-It's mine.

-What? No, it's mine. What are you doing?

0:21:050:21:09

Just through that gate, there's a scenario unfolding.

0:21:090:21:12

As Cop School cadets, I want you to deal with it.

0:21:120:21:15

THEY SHOUT AND ARGUE

0:21:150:21:19

It's my bag! What are you doing?

0:21:190:21:23

Leave me alone or I'll call the police!

0:21:230:21:25

Hold on. Right. Let go.

0:21:250:21:28

-Let go of the bike.

-Sam calms down the situation

0:21:280:21:31

and collects a major piece of evidence. Excellent work.

0:21:310:21:36

PC Sandy Clifford and I are there to watch what goes on.

0:21:370:21:39

Better watch out, cadets, here comes the eye-witness.

0:21:390:21:43

Excuse me, I was, like, a passer-by. I've just been sitting over there

0:21:430:21:46

reading my book, and this young gentleman here...

0:21:460:21:49

-OK, can we just take you aside and hear your...?

-No, no, no. Seriously,

0:21:490:21:53

I can tell you what happened. I saw what happened. Honestly.

0:21:530:21:56

-Do you want to take her?

-Yeah.

0:21:560:21:58

She's a convincing liar - I'll give her that.

0:21:580:22:01

-I left my bike down here...

-Come on, walk him away a bit.

0:22:010:22:04

That's right, Sam, get the witness and suspect separated out

0:22:040:22:07

to stop them changing their stories.

0:22:070:22:09

-Do you know any of the...

-I've never met them before.

0:22:090:22:12

-So you don't know them?

-No.

0:22:120:22:13

-What's your name?

-Michael.

-Michael. Second name?

-Jeavons.

0:22:130:22:17

Tom Hobson.

0:22:170:22:19

I just parked my bike there, I locked it, then I got a phone call.

0:22:190:22:22

So I went over there and I turned round and saw my bike wasn't there.

0:22:220:22:26

I looked round this way and he was coming down here with my bike.

0:22:260:22:29

I left my bike and my bag, didn't realise I'd left my bag,

0:22:290:22:32

went down to the shops down this way,

0:22:320:22:35

came back and I saw this guy putting my bag in his and then walking off.

0:22:350:22:41

I saw the guy in the grey top. He was...

0:22:410:22:42

He must have put his bike there - I don't know,

0:22:420:22:45

about an hour ago or something - and then came back

0:22:450:22:47

and then the other guy just started screaming at him

0:22:470:22:50

and accusing him of taking his bike.

0:22:500:22:52

So here's the evidence so far.

0:22:520:22:53

Michael says the bike and bag are his and Tom stole them.

0:22:530:22:58

But Tom is saying the bag is his and that Michael stole it,

0:22:580:23:01

along with his bag.

0:23:010:23:03

The eye-witness is backing up Tom's story, but how can the cadets

0:23:030:23:06

be sure who is telling the truth?

0:23:060:23:08

They need some concrete evidence

0:23:080:23:10

that these lot are who they say they are.

0:23:100:23:13

-Ah-ha!

-Have you got an ID there?

-A Michael Jeavons.

0:23:130:23:16

-He's 28. 1982.

-Yes.

0:23:160:23:19

Michael's ID checks out. There you go. So, what's this?

0:23:190:23:24

-That is a driving licence.

-But so does Tom's.

0:23:240:23:28

We're just going to ask, have you got any ID on you?

0:23:290:23:31

Uh, yeah. Hang on a second. My driving licence.

0:23:310:23:34

Lovely. OK.

0:23:360:23:37

The cadets have now seen the ID from the two suspects and the witness,

0:23:370:23:42

but there's something very obvious on the driving licences.

0:23:420:23:46

Tom and Sarah have the same surname.

0:23:470:23:49

But can the cadets make the connection?

0:23:510:23:53

That is a driving licence.

0:23:530:23:55

That's the same second name as the witness.

0:23:550:23:57

Well done, Jade.

0:23:570:23:58

That'll be his sister, then, trying to be biased.

0:23:580:24:01

Nathan is spot on with his deduction.

0:24:010:24:03

But Sarah said she didn't know Tom.

0:24:030:24:06

-Do you know any of the...

-I've never met them before.

0:24:060:24:09

-No. So, you don't know them.

-No.

0:24:090:24:11

-You think these two might be working together?

-Yeah.

-Ah!

0:24:110:24:14

But Tom and Sarah having the same surname isn't a crime.

0:24:140:24:18

They need more evidence, and Sam's onto it.

0:24:180:24:21

-Have you got any siblings or relatives?

-Um... Uh...no.

-No?

0:24:210:24:26

You said you don't have any connection

0:24:260:24:29

-to either of the boys over there?

-No, never seen them until today.

0:24:290:24:33

Come on, cadets, keep digging.

0:24:330:24:35

-Where do you come form? What's your address?

-27 Queen Street.

0:24:360:24:40

-What street do you live on?

-27 Queen Street.

0:24:400:24:42

27 Queen Street. Right.

0:24:420:24:45

If that's all right, we're just going to go back

0:24:450:24:47

with this information and we'll be back with you

0:24:470:24:50

-in a couple of seconds.

-Bingo.

0:24:500:24:52

Jade's cracked it. They both live at the same address.

0:24:520:24:55

She's his sister. So, we're going to arrest her

0:24:560:25:00

for withholding information and arrest him on suspicion of theft.

0:25:000:25:04

Yep. OK.

0:25:040:25:05

Great work, Jade. Clear and decisive.

0:25:050:25:08

And Sam's given the green light, so let the arrests begin.

0:25:080:25:12

-We're going to arrest you...

-For what? I haven't done nothing!

0:25:120:25:15

..on suspicion of withholding information from police.

0:25:150:25:18

You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you

0:25:180:25:22

do not mention when questioned

0:25:220:25:24

something which you later rely on in court.

0:25:240:25:27

Put your arms to the side for me. Look away from me, please.

0:25:270:25:30

Being team leader was great, the fact that we all worked together

0:25:300:25:35

to capture the criminals was amazing.

0:25:350:25:37

And can you put that hand on your elbow, please?

0:25:370:25:40

Everyone really stepped up to the challenge today

0:25:400:25:43

and, um, I think everyone tried their hardest.

0:25:430:25:46

Your bike's just there, get your stuff and you'll be on your way.

0:25:460:25:49

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

0:25:490:25:50

Today's been amazing for me - catching the criminals,

0:25:500:25:53

working with the team.

0:25:530:25:55

Well done, team.

0:25:550:25:56

You cracked the crime, the right man walked free

0:25:560:25:59

and these two thieves ended up behind bars.

0:25:590:26:02

-That was all right, I had fun though.

-Yeah.

0:26:080:26:11

All the cadets have done well, but who excelled?

0:26:110:26:14

PC Clifford and I need to decide who will be this week's Top Cops.

0:26:140:26:19

It's a tough decision cos they've all got their strengths.

0:26:190:26:22

We look at Sam, who had the role of leader,

0:26:220:26:24

and he was trying to direct the people, we could see that.

0:26:240:26:28

Megan did quite well, I saw she was making a lot of notes,

0:26:280:26:31

-that was nice to see.

-Yes.

0:26:310:26:32

At the same token, it's important to not hide behind the books,

0:26:320:26:36

so to speak.

0:26:360:26:37

-Nathan?

-He was the one when the penny dropped, "Ah! She's involved."

0:26:370:26:41

And it was a complex situation.

0:26:410:26:42

Jade? When she went to make her arrest, her caution was word-perfect.

0:26:420:26:48

So a big team effort from the cadets.

And now a big decision for me.

0:26:510:26:53

Who will be Top Cops?

0:26:530:26:55

OK, team. There are to be two Top Cops today.

0:26:560:27:02

And they are going to be treated to a slap-up meal

0:27:020:27:05

at a copper's favourite cafe not too far from here.

0:27:050:27:09

The rest of you...will have to mop out that dirty cell

0:27:100:27:13

that you just put the prisoners in.

0:27:130:27:17

So today's Top Cops are...

0:27:170:27:22

..Nathan and Jade.

0:27:320:27:36

THEY CLAP

0:27:360:27:39

I think I speak on behalf of both of us, we're feeling pretty good.

0:27:400:27:43

There was like so many people there, you're like "Whoa, it's me!"

0:27:430:27:47

THEY CHEER

0:27:470:27:49

Next time at Cop School...

0:27:530:27:55

Ah!

0:27:550:27:56

..the cadets meet the most fearless members of the force,

0:27:560:27:59

they follow up a few leads...

0:27:590:28:02

No, no, no, no!

0:28:020:28:03

..and track down cash from a bank robbery.

0:28:030:28:07

We found some money.

0:28:070:28:08

This is a Top Cop, eh?

For the first time ever, six handpicked children from all across the UK are training with the world's oldest force - the Metropolitan Police. It is day one and they are brought to Hendon Police Training College in London to meet their mentor - CrimeWatch's Rav Wilding - to start their high-octane Cop School journey. The Cop School Cadets are sworn in and learn how to march, handcuff and arrest suspects before being thrown in at the deep end with their first Cop School crime.
