-Today at Cop School: a criminal's on the loose.

-There he is!

0:00:020:00:06

And the cadets are called in to help.

0:00:060:00:10

Can they catch him?

0:00:100:00:12

Policing just got cold, wet and dangerous.

0:00:120:00:16

I'm Rav Wilding. This is Cop School.

0:00:160:00:20

Six wannabe coppers meet the world's oldest police forces.

0:00:230:00:29

Their mission: to complete a unique training course.

0:00:290:00:34

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

0:00:340:00:38

Six cadets from across the UK came for the challenge of a lifetime.

0:00:420:00:47

Last time at Cop School, they faced their biggest fears

0:00:490:00:54

and took on Cop School hooligans as part of the Met's riot police.

0:00:540:00:59

-Keep walking.

-And they nailed it.

0:00:590:01:02

It's early in the morning and the cadets are here on Tower Bridge.

0:01:060:01:11

Today they're leaving land behind and joining the River Police.

0:01:110:01:16

I'm PC Analeigh Hipkin from the Metropolitan Marine Policing Unit.

0:01:410:01:45

While you're training with us, I'm your mentor.

0:01:450:01:49

The Met's Marine Police Unit has policed the River Thames

0:01:490:01:53

for over 200 years.

0:01:530:01:58

They drive 10-tonne boats on a 40-mile length of the UK's most famous river

0:01:580:02:03

and surrounding waterways. And they keep the capital safe from attack.

0:02:030:02:09

PC Analeigh Hipkin has been a Met police officer for 12 years

0:02:090:02:15

and patrolled the river for five.

0:02:150:02:17

She's dealt with some of London's most dangerous criminals,

0:02:180:02:24

dealing with drugs, firearms and undercover missions.

0:02:240:02:28

But can she teach the Cop School cadets for their final challenge

0:02:280:02:33

in just two days?

0:02:330:02:35

But before any of that can happen,

0:02:350:02:38

PC Hipkin has a serious warning for the cadets.

0:02:380:02:42

If you fall into the River Thames, the chances are you'll drown.

0:02:430:02:48

In a matter of seconds, water can enter your lungs.

0:02:480:02:52

Nobody is allowed on my police boats unless they're a strong swimmer.

0:02:520:02:56

That means we are going to be testing your swimming.

0:02:560:03:00

-Aaah!

-Sam, you look nervous. Why?

0:03:000:03:04

Cos the rest think I've brought tight trunks.

0:03:040:03:08

-Tight trunks? Nathan, have you seen these?

-Yeah.

0:03:080:03:12

And he wanted me to wear them!

0:03:120:03:14

I'd say I'm looking forward to this, but I'm not! Come on.

0:03:140:03:19

'Mainly what scares me'

0:03:190:03:22

is going into the water. You're drowning, aren't you?

0:03:220:03:26

It's essential they do well here.

0:03:310:03:34

If they fail, they don't sail.

0:03:340:03:38

OK, line up. That's it, Rebecca.

0:03:390:03:42

-OK, listen in.

-You've all got your swimsuits. Sam?

0:03:420:03:46

-Yes.

-Fantastic.

0:03:460:03:48

You can drop them to the ground now.

0:03:480:03:51

-If you fall into the Thames, it'll be fully-clothed.

-Oh, no!

0:03:510:03:56

'So fully-clothed is how they are going into the pool.'

0:03:560:04:00

Yes.

0:04:000:04:02

You don't need that. Get rid.

0:04:020:04:05

Well done. It's a travesty that you won't be wearing those!

0:04:050:04:09

OK, guys, listen up. You are going to tread water for 90 seconds.

0:04:110:04:16

Just keeping yourself safely afloat.

0:04:160:04:20

If the police do not think you are competent swimmers,

0:04:200:04:25

you will not travel in any police vessel. Three, two, one!

0:04:250:04:29

Good. Heads up!

0:04:340:04:36

Heads up everywhere. Junior, good.

0:04:360:04:39

Keep up, keep up. That's it.

0:04:410:04:44

Time's ticking away. 'They're off to a good start.

0:04:440:04:49

'But suddenly Junior starts to struggle.'

0:04:490:04:53

That's it, Junior. What did we say about ducking? You all right?

0:04:530:04:58

Good man. Nearly there. You OK?

0:04:580:05:01

'He needs to keep his head above water to join the River Police.'

0:05:010:05:06

-Keep kicking.

-Come closer.

0:05:060:05:09

-Well done, Junior.

-Just 10 seconds.

0:05:090:05:12

10 seconds. Keep going, keep going.

0:05:120:05:16

'Junior is five seconds short of the required time.' Well done.

0:05:160:05:22

Come up to the side. To the side.

0:05:220:05:24

Well done. Get warm. 'PC Hipkin has a big decision to make.

0:05:240:05:30

'Is Junior a strong enough swimmer to go onto the river?

0:05:300:05:34

'If she says no, he'll be left behind.'

0:05:340:05:39

Out of them all, it was Junior struggling.

0:05:390:05:42

He did have to hold on to the side and stopped.

0:05:420:05:46

-Is that good enough for you?

-He did have to stop and did struggle a bit.

0:05:460:05:50

He'll be wearing a buoyancy aid.

0:05:500:05:53

Because of that and how hard he tried today, that's good enough.

0:05:530:05:59

'Time to give a nervous Junior the good news.'

0:05:590:06:03

-Do all right?

-Not too well.

-OK.

0:06:030:06:06

I've had a good chat with Analeigh. You didn't quite make the time

0:06:060:06:11

and you did grab the side.

0:06:110:06:14

But...because of the effort that you showed,

0:06:140:06:18

and because she thinks you are still a competent enough swimmer,

0:06:180:06:23

-you will be able to go on the police boats.

-Thank you very much.

0:06:230:06:28

-Feel a bit better?

-Yeah.

0:06:280:06:31

He did really well. He didn't act like he'd pass out. Just kept going.

0:06:310:06:36

I'm going to give it 100%.

0:06:360:06:38

I think Jade probably was the best person there.

0:06:380:06:42

She had a good technique and kept her head facing up.

0:06:420:06:47

I think she done the best.

0:06:470:06:49

'They passed the first test,

0:06:530:06:55

'so all six cadets arrive at the Met's Marine Policing Unit, Wapping,

0:06:550:07:01

'for their first shift on the Thames.'

0:07:010:07:03

Hello, cadets. Junior, good to have you with us.

0:07:030:07:06

-Welcome to the Marine Policing Unit.

-'The cadets have a lot to learn -

0:07:060:07:12

'GPS, radio protocol

0:07:120:07:14

'and I've got a special observation contest in store.'

0:07:140:07:19

The River Police are on patrol 24 hours a day,

0:07:220:07:25

365 days a year.

0:07:250:07:28

They're constantly on the lookout for suspicious behaviour

0:07:290:07:33

and our cadets will do the same.

0:07:330:07:36

-Go for it, Junior.

-'They divide into two groups for their first shift.'

0:07:360:07:41

Well done.

0:07:410:07:43

'Megan, Julia and Sam are aboard Marine Police 4

0:07:430:07:48

'with PC Analeigh Hipkin.

0:07:480:07:50

'Jade, Nathan and Rebecca are aboard Marine Police 1

0:07:500:07:54

'with me and PC Martin Warnock.'

0:07:540:07:57

Whilst on my boat, you all act as crew. So you all have a job

0:07:570:08:02

to look out and about. OK?

0:08:020:08:04

'When the River Police need back-up,

0:08:040:08:07

'they must guide their colleagues to their exact location.

0:08:070:08:12

-'The cadets need to do the same.'

-Do you know what GPS stands for?

0:08:120:08:16

-Global Positioning System?

-Absolutely right.

0:08:160:08:20

This is our Global Positioning System receiver.

0:08:200:08:24

So who can point out to me where we are on this GPS receiver?

0:08:240:08:28

-The black dot.

-That's it. Fantastic.

0:08:280:08:31

'Next up, essential police radio training.

0:08:310:08:36

-'In an emergency call-out, this can save lives.'

-One important thing.

0:08:360:08:40

-If someone falls overboard in the water...

-Is it, "Man overboard"?

0:08:400:08:45

-Here on the river, we use, "Pan, pan!"

-Is it like a frying pan?

0:08:450:08:50

-It certainly is.

-'Glad that's cleared that up.'

0:08:500:08:54

We would broadcast that as, "Pan, pan! Pan, pan! Pan, pan!"

0:08:540:09:00

We say that three times, then give our call sign. Marine 1.

0:09:000:09:05

"Person in the water," the location and then, "Over".

0:09:050:09:10

'Right, cadets. Time for you to have a go.'

0:09:100:09:14

You have the radio, Sam. Go for it.

0:09:140:09:17

Is it, "Tam, tam"? Pan, pan!

0:09:170:09:22

'Oh, dear. Better luck next time.

0:09:220:09:24

'GPS and radio lesson done, now onto the observation test.

0:09:240:09:29

'We've planted 10 Cop School flags along the Thames.

0:09:340:09:39

'The cadets need to spot them to win my amazing prize - chocolate.'

0:09:390:09:44

They have to look for these flags.

0:09:450:09:48

So far they've found...none.

0:09:480:09:51

Let's hope they do a bit better than that.

0:09:510:09:55

Eyes peeled, everyone.

0:09:550:09:57

There's one! Look.

0:09:570:09:59

Fantastic. Well done.

0:09:590:10:02

Junior, write that down for me.

0:10:020:10:05

There's one! In the corner!

0:10:050:10:08

In the corner of Tower Bridge.

0:10:080:10:11

I see another one! Oh, yeah.

0:10:110:10:15

There's a flag on the yellow thing!

0:10:150:10:17

On the side!

0:10:170:10:20

That was a good spot from me.

0:10:200:10:23

-Over there.

-Fantastic. Note that down.

0:10:230:10:27

We missed one. Can we turn round?

0:10:270:10:30

I can't see a thing!

0:10:300:10:33

-There!

-What does it say?

0:10:330:10:35

-President.

-President. Jade, have you got that?

0:10:350:10:39

Well done. Good spot, Rebecca.

0:10:390:10:41

We got a wave! Hi!

0:10:410:10:44

'Aren't you supposed to be working?'

0:10:440:10:47

Cadets, while you're acting as my crew,

0:10:470:10:50

I need you to be observant at all times. OK? That's not waving!

0:10:500:10:55

-All right? You need to have eyes everywhere.

-All right.

-Good stuff.

0:10:550:11:01

'Er, Megan, have you forgotten something?'

0:11:010:11:05

Don't wave!

0:11:050:11:07

'They'll find out which team counted the most flags later.

0:11:070:11:11

'After a quick change of boats, one more vital piece of training.

0:11:170:11:22

'Last year, the MPU pulled 35 people out of the Thames.

0:11:220:11:27

-'The cadets are about to learn how they do it.'

-OK, cadets,

0:11:270:11:32

we have a special guest. This is normally our man overboard dummy,

0:11:320:11:37

but for today... Say hello to Little Rav.

0:11:370:11:42

Hi, Rav!

0:11:420:11:43

Little Rav is going to commit the biggest no-no on the river.

0:11:430:11:48

He's going to go into the water and you guys will rescue him.

0:11:480:11:53

One of you will have a boat hook.

0:11:530:11:56

As soon as Little Rav enters the water, your job is to point

0:11:560:12:00

so our driver can see where Rav is.

0:12:000:12:04

Good luck, cadets.

0:12:040:12:06

Three, two, one. He's going over.

0:12:070:12:10

THE CADETS SHOUT

0:12:100:12:13

Man overboard!

0:12:130:12:15

He's there! He's there!

0:12:150:12:18

'The current has already dragged Little Rav 20 metres up the river.'

0:12:180:12:22

Come along here.

0:12:250:12:28

Man overboard!

0:12:280:12:30

'The cadets have just 10 minutes before he'll start to freeze.'

0:12:300:12:35

That's it. Keep pointing. Make sure your driver knows where it is.

0:12:380:12:43

OK, Megan, come round. That's it. If you come in...

0:12:430:12:48

Pull him out. Can you see? See how heavy he is?

0:12:480:12:53

Get that out of the way. Keep pulling, keep pulling.

0:12:530:12:57

And he's onboard! 'Good teamwork, cadets.

0:12:570:13:01

-'You got Little Rav out safely and in time.'

-You all did fantastically.

0:13:010:13:06

You listened to what we said and did what was asked.

0:13:060:13:11

You worked very well as a team.

0:13:110:13:13

'Back at base, chocolate's at stake. Which team won the flag challenge?'

0:13:170:13:22

OK, then, remember I said the winning team would get chocolate.

0:13:220:13:28

Marine 1,

0:13:280:13:30

lots of detail when spotting your flags, eight of which were correct.

0:13:300:13:36

ALL: Yay!

0:13:360:13:38

Marine 4, no detail whatsoever

0:13:380:13:42

and only six.

0:13:420:13:44

'Maybe Marine 4 were having a bit too much fun.'

0:13:440:13:49

So that means Marine 1 are the winners.

0:13:490:13:53

-Losers!

-'Gracious winners(!)'

-We got the flags!

0:13:530:13:58

Thank you!

0:13:580:14:00

'Night falls over London.

0:14:000:14:02

'In less than 24 hours,

0:14:040:14:06

'the cadets will be faced with this Cop School criminal on the run.'

0:14:060:14:11

-Stop your vehicle!

-'And one of them will be crowned Top Cop.

0:14:110:14:14

'They'll open one of the UK's most famous landmarks - Tower Bridge,

0:14:160:14:20

'and allow a tall ship to pass through.'

0:14:200:14:23

The cadets don't know this yet, but if they want to succeed today,

0:14:270:14:32

they'll have to pay attention to this next bit of training.

0:14:320:14:37

PC Hipkin will show them how to use a mud rescue path,

0:14:370:14:40

which police use in search and rescue missions.

0:14:400:14:44

We can use mud rescue paths to retrieve weapons,

0:14:450:14:48

to save casualties and also to go after suspects.

0:14:480:14:52

The mud on the Thames is different because of the water.

0:14:520:14:55

When the tide goes out, it may look solid, but if you walked on it,

0:14:550:15:00

you could sink and get stuck like quicksand.

0:15:000:15:03

-This connects into here.

-'The path is inflated with compressed air.

0:15:030:15:08

'After just 60 seconds, it can hold ten grown men on water and mud.'

0:15:080:15:12

That feels pretty solid to me. Yeah, you think so?

0:15:120:15:16

'The cadets decide to put it to the test.'

0:15:170:15:21

Look at that, Sam. Looking good!

0:15:210:15:24

Junior, let's have a look at those feet! 'Nice moves, Junior.

0:15:240:15:28

'Well, this isn't a fashion show, guys,

0:15:280:15:31

'so what would you do in a real situation?'

0:15:310:15:35

What would be a more stable way than to walk if this was on water?

0:15:350:15:40

-That's right, Jade.

-Who's that at the back? Jade?

-You've got it.

0:15:400:15:44

'Now they've got all the skills they need for the final challenge.

0:15:440:15:48

'It's time to choose a team leader.

0:15:480:15:50

'Each week, one cadet takes charge of the group

0:15:500:15:53

'for the final challenge.'

0:15:530:15:56

This cadet has shown great attention to detail,

0:15:560:15:59

really good leadership skills and a very loud voice.

0:15:590:16:03

Yes, Jade, at last, your chance has come to be team leader. Well done.

0:16:040:16:10

'Jade is 13 and from Brighton.

0:16:120:16:14

'She loves dance, musical theatre and athletics

0:16:140:16:18

'and has zero tolerance for slackers.'

0:16:180:16:21

I get really tetchy if someone doesn't pull their weight.

0:16:210:16:24

'So, cadets, better watch out!'

0:16:240:16:28

OK, Jade, put this on. Congratulations.

0:16:280:16:32

Good luck. What we want to see from you is you leading with confidence.

0:16:320:16:37

OK. Yeah, let's do it.

0:16:370:16:39

'A crime is committed every minute in London.

0:16:450:16:49

'Just as the cadets come on duty,

0:16:490:16:51

'a situation is unfolding in south-east London.'

0:16:550:16:57

Listen up, guys. Marine Four. Go ahead.

0:16:570:17:00

'Reports of a burglar on the run by the river have come into the police

'and a balaclava over his head.

0:17:180:17:20

'Shoreside guys at Greenwich have requested we back them up. Over.'

0:17:200:17:25

Received. OK, listen up. We've just had an emergency call.

0:17:250:17:28

We're required to assist at Greenwich.

0:17:280:17:31

'Jade has split her team in two.

0:17:310:17:34

'Sam, Rebecca and Nathan will search on water for the criminal

0:17:340:17:39

'while Jade, Junior and Megan

0:18:160:18:20

Right.

We can do this.

0:18:220:18:24

OK, can we park up?

0:18:240:18:26

'Jade and the team meet PC Warnock for an update.'

0:18:260:18:30

Just spoke to a witness up in the yacht club here.

0:18:300:18:33

They saw a suspect run down here and jump into a small, grey motor boat

0:18:330:18:38

and zoom off into the river there.

0:18:380:18:41

And he's got a bluish jacket and trousers.

0:18:410:18:44

Marine Four, Marine Four, this is Marine Three.

0:18:440:18:48

The vessel appears to be a small, grey speedboat.

0:18:480:18:51

-Message received. Over.

-OK, we need to start an intensive search.

0:18:510:18:56

I need one of you in here with me

0:18:560:18:58

cos we might need to use the hailer to speak to them.

0:18:580:19:01

Sam, you're the man for the job.

0:19:010:19:04

'With Sam leading the search, the cadets start to patrol the water.'

0:19:040:19:09

OK, we need to go and talk to the witness.

0:19:160:19:19

-Who, what, where, when, why, how, which?

-Yes.

0:19:190:19:23

'But before they find the witness,

0:19:230:19:25

'Jade, Megan and Junior spot something in the mud.'

0:19:250:19:28

-I can see some gloves down there.

-What was that, Jade?

0:19:280:19:32

I can see some gloves down there.

0:19:320:19:35

Remember that when you speak to your witness. That could be important.

0:19:350:19:40

-OK, are you the witness?

-I am, yes.

0:19:400:19:43

Can you tell us an account of what you saw?

0:19:430:19:46

I was fixing the trolley down there and I heard a strange sound.

0:19:460:19:50

I looked out and a man came running here with a balaclava on.

0:19:500:19:55

He ran across the bridge, but he stopped.

0:19:550:19:59

He stopped once on that side and he threw something.

0:19:590:20:03

He ran a bit further and he threw something else, then he ran on.

0:20:030:20:07

Did you see what he was throwing? Any colour?

0:20:070:20:10

No, just it was an object.

0:20:100:20:12

Thank you for your time, sir.

0:20:120:20:14

'While they go to find the items the suspect threw off the bridge,

0:20:140:20:19

'the river search continues.'

0:20:190:20:22

When you're looking, just look for like a grey boat, OK?

0:20:220:20:26

-There! There! There!

-Sam!

-Sam, he's over there!

0:20:260:20:30

SWITCHES SIREN ON

0:20:300:20:32

Stop your vehicle! This is Marine Police Four. Stop your vehicle!

0:20:370:20:41

This is Marine Police Four...

0:20:410:20:43

'They stay hot on the trail of the suspect

0:20:430:20:47

'while back in the mud flats,

0:20:470:20:49

'this lot are taking a more relaxed approach to the investigation.'

0:20:490:20:53

Oh, sorry. LAUGHTER

0:20:530:20:57

'The mud they're on is extremely dangerous

0:20:580:21:01

'which they seem to have forgotten.'

0:21:010:21:04

LAUGHTER Do you want a hand?

0:21:040:21:07

'The river team are in a high-speed pursuit on the Thames.

0:21:070:21:11

'The suspect is heading for the Thames Barrier.

0:21:110:21:14

'If he goes through, it will be difficult to catch him.'

0:21:140:21:18

He's passing through the Thames Barrier.

0:21:200:21:23

Stop your vessel! Stop your vessel!

0:21:230:21:27

This is Marine Police Four.

0:21:270:21:29

He said he chucked two things.

0:21:310:21:34

We can see the gloves, but there's obviously something else.

0:21:340:21:38

-We need to see where the second thing is.

-OK.

0:21:380:21:41

We have to get through this mud thing first.

0:21:410:21:44

OK... Let's just have a sift here.

0:21:460:21:50

-Oh, my God!

-Shall I go and grab them gloves? I've got long arms.

0:21:500:21:54

I've found a big clump of mud.

0:21:550:21:58

A big clump of mud? Well done, Jade!

0:21:580:22:00

One of you hold my arm while I reach out for these gloves.

0:22:000:22:04

If you let me go... Oh, my God!

0:22:040:22:07

Come on, Junior. Keep going. No-one said it would be easy.

0:22:070:22:11

SCREAMING

0:22:110:22:13

You let me go!

0:22:140:22:17

Yes!

0:22:170:22:19

-We're covered in mud.

-Look at my suit!

0:22:190:22:22

'The first piece of evidence is bagged up.

0:22:220:22:25

'If this lot want to find the second item the suspect threw in the mud,

0:22:250:22:29

'they'll need to get serious.

0:22:290:22:32

'Meanwhile, the cadets on the river are still involved

0:22:320:22:36

'in a high-speed pursuit. They might have a lucky break.

0:22:360:22:39

'The suspect's boat has cut out.'

0:22:390:22:42

He's stopped. Sam, he's stopped.

0:22:420:22:45

Remain seated in your vessel. We will come and get you.

0:22:450:22:48

-Stay seated till we know you can hear us.

-Stay there!

0:22:480:22:53

Sit down in your vessel. We will come and get you. Remain seated!

0:22:530:22:57

-If my boat hadn't broke, I'd have got away.

-We told you to stop.

0:23:000:23:04

-Take your balaclava off, please.

-No!

-Take your balaclava off.

0:23:040:23:08

Take it off.

0:23:080:23:10

He said he threw two things quite separate from each other.

0:23:140:23:18

'The land team are finally getting down to work.'

0:23:180:23:21

-Come on, we really need to find this, guys!

-Come on, Junior.

0:23:210:23:25

-Wait!

-'Jade makes a discovery.'

0:23:270:23:31

Oh, no!

0:23:310:23:33

It's here.

0:23:330:23:35

That's a crowbar. It's a crowbar.

0:23:350:23:38

-He might have used that to break in or something.

-Yeah!

0:23:380:23:43

Just what I've always wanted(!) A muddy crowbar!

0:23:430:23:46

Aagh!

0:23:460:23:48

No, no!

0:23:500:23:51

It's in my hair!

0:23:510:23:53

'While this lot get on with a mud fight,

0:23:530:23:57

'Sam takes charge of the suspect.'

0:23:570:23:59

You've been arrested for theft.

0:23:590:24:01

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

0:24:010:24:04

if you do not mention something you later rely on in court.

0:24:040:24:08

-Anything you do say can be given in evidence.

-Stand up, please.

0:24:080:24:12

'Nathan uses his verbal dominance training to control the suspect.'

0:24:120:24:16

-Why have I got to take my knife out?

-Take it out!

-Why?

-Take it out!

0:24:160:24:20

-It's evidence.

-What have I done?

0:24:200:24:23

-Burglary.

-I was out driving my boat.

-Anything else in your pocket?

-No.

0:24:230:24:28

-Are you guilty?

-I don't feel guilty.

0:24:280:24:31

-Are you telling the truth?

-I am. I'm not saying no more.

0:24:310:24:36

Marine Three, this is Marine Four. We have caught the man.

0:24:360:24:40

They arrested him. We did really well.

0:24:400:24:43

We found both pieces of evidence and we're a bit muddy. Over.

0:24:430:24:47

CHEERING

0:24:470:24:49

-Marine Three, out.

-Marine Four, out.

0:24:490:24:54

-I hate you coppers.

-That's our job, sir.

0:24:550:24:58

'Both teams head back to base.

0:24:580:25:02

'The team hand the suspect over to the police

0:25:020:25:05

'and wait to meet up with their team-mates.

0:25:050:25:08

'Mission accomplished.

0:25:080:25:10

'But choosing a Top Cop won't be so easy

0:25:110:25:14

'as I'm not sure they all took the challenge seriously enough.'

0:25:140:25:19

We've got to pick Top Cop or Top Cops. Let's start off with Sam.

0:25:190:25:23

He was very good, I thought. He gave good, clear, concise orders.

0:25:230:25:28

He made good use of the loud-hailer.

0:25:280:25:31

He delivered the caution word-perfect.

0:25:310:25:34

The team leader today was Jade, but she was slightly distracted.

0:25:340:25:39

I was with her on the mud flats. She was more interested in messing about

0:25:390:25:44

with her friends than keeping her team together.

0:25:440:25:47

She should have taken it more seriously.

0:25:470:25:50

Junior also did well. He nearly didn't make it with his swimming.

0:25:500:25:55

Today, he did some good work on the mud flats and he got the gloves.

0:25:550:25:59

It shows real strength of character.

0:25:590:26:02

'After a quick break, the cadets arrive back

0:26:060:26:09

'to find out who we've chosen as Top Cop or Top Cops.'

0:26:090:26:13

OK, cadets, Top Cop or Cops have shown

0:26:130:26:16

that they've picked up skills throughout Cop School

0:26:160:26:20

which has been incorporated today.

0:26:200:26:23

The Top Cop is going to get the chance

0:26:230:26:27

to go to Tower Bridge and lift the bridge

0:26:270:26:31

in order to let a boat through.

0:26:310:26:34

Oh, my God!

0:26:340:26:36

Sadly, it is not as good for the other five

0:26:360:26:39

because you are going to be cleaning up the mud path

0:26:390:26:44

and any remaining muddy colleagues.

0:26:440:26:47

-CHEERING

-Do you want to know who it is?

-Yes.

0:26:470:26:52

Today, we've decided that the Top Cop...

0:26:520:26:56

-..is Sam. Well done, Sam.

-APPLAUSE

0:27:050:27:09

-Are you happy?

-Yeah.

-Good prize today, Sam. It's a good prize.

0:27:100:27:14

I'm really excited. Hardly anybody gets to open Tower Bridge.

0:27:150:27:19

It's going to be amazing.

0:27:190:27:21

-I'm doing a mud slide.

-They get to hose us down!

0:27:210:27:25

'Next time at Cop School, the cadets get stuck into some training.'

0:27:260:27:32

-Right on time!

-'And use CCTV to solve crimes.'

-He's stolen her bag.

0:27:320:27:37

'But can they succeed when underground and under pressure?'

0:27:370:27:41

Stay still and stop fighting!

0:27:410:27:44

Oh, look at that!

0:27:470:27:50

-Agh!

-Eugh!

0:27:560:27:58

Rav Wilding takes the cadets onto the water in this wet and wild episode of Cop School, to train with the oldest branch of the Met - the River Police. But before any of them can set so much as a foot on a boat to patrol the Thames, rescue men overboard and complete an exacting challenge, they have to prove that they are competent swimmers. Could this be a stumbling block for some of the cadets?
