In Luton, a man on a bike is wielding a heavy chain. In Bedford,

:00:37.:00:44.

a gang member has armed himself with an iron bar. Taser, drop it.

:00:44.:00:49.

And on an estate, a woman has got an axe. So but it has thrown an axe

:00:49.:00:52.

through her window, she has picked it up and run down the street with

:00:52.:00:57.

it. A every day, police get called to potentially volatile situations.

:00:57.:01:00.

Now they are arming themselves with a new weapon which will help put an

:01:00.:01:07.

end to any dangerous confrontations. Put the knife down! 50,000 volt

:01:07.:01:14.

Taser stun guns. What does he look like, the boy with the metal bar?

:01:14.:01:18.

They are being shown the Taser and they are stopping. Normally they

:01:18.:01:22.

would fight. They would strike police officers, damage, do

:01:22.:01:32.
:01:32.:01:51.

anything. Now they are thinking Bedford, it is said, is where

:01:51.:01:55.

Christian set off from in John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, on his

:01:55.:02:00.

arduous journey to heaven. Nowadays, the traffic cops are there to aid

:02:00.:02:05.

and abet anyone hearing from the straight and narrow. And temptation

:02:05.:02:13.

is never far away. This is the lovely Midland Road area of Bedford.

:02:13.:02:18.

Drug deals go one on the actual street corner. PC Chris Leah is

:02:18.:02:22.

heading for the towns and there. All the sudden, he has noticed a

:02:22.:02:26.

white van darting out of a side street. He's not even looking at

:02:26.:02:29.

the road ahead. He's just constantly looking in his rear-view

:02:29.:02:37.

mirror. Chris is going to see what his hurry is. As I'm about to make

:02:37.:02:41.

the turn, Mark Casey, from our unit, in another vehicle, comes out of

:02:41.:02:46.

the same street with his blue lights on behind the white van. We

:02:46.:02:51.

turn around and start to follow him. The driver is not stopping for

:02:51.:02:56.

Chris's colleague for some reason. As we have come around the corner,

:02:56.:03:01.

by the time we have made the turn, the van has stopped. As we have

:03:01.:03:06.

approached, we can see Mark approaching him. He resists

:03:06.:03:15.

straight away. You are going to get the Taser! Get on the floor! Relax!

:03:15.:03:22.

Put your hands where they need today! Listen to me! Listen Timmy!

:03:22.:03:26.

You have a red dot on your back. The red dot is not just for aiming,

:03:26.:03:30.

it's also a handy warning that the Taser is activated and ready to

:03:30.:03:36.

fire. Do you understand?! As I looked to my left, on the front of

:03:36.:03:43.

the van I saw quite a large screwdriver. Even a screwdriver can

:03:43.:03:46.

give police grounds to suspect a person is carrying an offensive

:03:46.:03:51.

weapon. Its Commercial Road. We are with him, he has kicked off as soon

:03:51.:03:56.

as he got out of the vehicle. kicked off?! There's a screwdriver.

:03:56.:04:02.

Who has got a screwdriver? He got the red dot from the Taser to calm

:04:02.:04:09.

him down. What the (BLEEP) are you going on about? Look away from me,

:04:09.:04:14.

now! We are up close and personal, trying to search them. There is the

:04:14.:04:24.

fear that they could spit at you. Not deployed, just red dot.

:04:24.:04:31.

back on the floor, sir. Why are you hurting me? He was still struggling

:04:31.:04:34.

with the officers. We need to make sure he's not concealing anything.

:04:34.:04:40.

We still do not know why he didn't stop. What is wrong with you, man?

:04:40.:04:46.

Stay down, get on your front. are you hurting me so much? We are

:04:46.:04:50.

not. You are, I haven't done anything wrong. If you had

:04:50.:04:57.

stopped... I'm not insured, I've got tax and everything. That is my

:04:57.:05:01.

job. The man is insisting he's just a shopkeeper and has done nothing

:05:01.:05:09.

wrong. I'm going to sit you up. Just steady yourself. I didn't

:05:09.:05:14.

swear at you, I didn't raise my fists. The first one that pushed me

:05:14.:05:19.

to the ground, I am doing you for assault. Physical assault. Yeah, OK.

:05:19.:05:24.

The van is 10 seconds away. sergeant in charge? Do you think,

:05:24.:05:30.

yeah, I'm the owner of that shop, I'd gone round the block once, I've

:05:30.:05:35.

got out my car. I haven't raised my fists, I've not sworn at them. I

:05:35.:05:39.

asked the man what he is doing, he jumped straight on top of me. Yeah?

:05:40.:05:43.

It's not failure to stop, I'd stopped. You are in a lot of

:05:44.:05:49.

trouble. He's not in a lot of trouble, it's something that needs

:05:49.:05:52.

to get sorted out back at the police station. The police computer

:05:52.:05:56.

showing that he is not insured for the ban and is is not even his. So,

:05:56.:06:02.

he's being arrested for TWOC, taking about owners' consent, as

:06:02.:06:07.

well as failing to stop. I've been threatened with... What do you call

:06:07.:06:13.

it? With a Taser. With a firearm. It's not a firearm. White, Stuart...

:06:13.:06:20.

Are you going to calm down? calm, I'm a working person. Are you

:06:20.:06:26.

going to calm down in the back of the car? You are in trouble, maker.

:06:26.:06:36.
:06:36.:06:36.

You get everyone down the police station, everybody that you can

:06:36.:06:42.

find that knows I'm a good person. It wasn't his van. He said he

:06:42.:06:46.

borrowed it from my friend. He wasn't on the insurance policy. He

:06:46.:06:52.

was arrested for TWOC. I'm going to seize this, I'm the only one that

:06:52.:06:57.

has seen it. The vehicle is going back to Grey Friars for a thorough

:06:57.:07:03.

search. Having withdrawn to Taser and seeing the effects of just the

:07:03.:07:07.

presence of a Taser, people coming down to being completely compliant

:07:07.:07:12.

without even pulling a trigger. It was amazing. It's the first time

:07:12.:07:16.

Chris has ever drawn up the Taser on the job. He qualified to carry

:07:16.:07:22.

it only the day before. Where previously only firearms officers

:07:22.:07:25.

were authorised to have them, now in Bedfordshire all of the traffic

:07:25.:07:30.

cops are being trained to use them. The view was that traffic officers,

:07:30.:07:33.

by the very nature of what they deal with, are more experienced.

:07:33.:07:38.

Let's put the knife down and look after you first. Their offices that

:07:38.:07:41.

are used to providing a fast response across the county in

:07:41.:07:51.

Put the knife down! The battery operated gun fires two needle tip

:07:51.:07:56.

tarts. When they strike the target they release a five second, 50,000

:07:56.:08:02.

volt electric charge, which temporarily paralyses the subject.

:08:02.:08:07.

Second shot, he started to advance and you came out brilliantly.

:08:07.:08:11.

basics they are taught is that any level of threat you off the back to

:08:11.:08:15.

somebody has to be proportionate. We do have to be able to justify

:08:15.:08:22.

the use. Officer with a Taser, put the knife down! Taser! Turn

:08:22.:08:28.

yourself over, now! It's a judgment call for that particular officer.

:08:28.:08:33.

Whether they go initially for their Taser or if they consider CS gas.

:08:33.:08:37.

It's all dependent on circumstances. It's how that officer reacts at the

:08:37.:08:43.

time. The driver of the white bat arrested at Taser point has been

:08:43.:08:48.

brought to the main police station in Bedford. He's in a waiting room,

:08:48.:08:51.

waiting to see the custody sergeant, although he thinks he should be

:08:51.:08:57.

seeing a doctor. I needed to be beaten up because I was so violent

:08:57.:09:06.

I was so violent that I needed all of these cuts. But it's not

:09:06.:09:16.
:09:16.:09:19.

excessive force, because I wasn't You were controlled. This is called

:09:19.:09:24.

being under control, look how bruised that is. Lookouts Guinea my

:09:24.:09:32.

wrists are. Look how bruised that is. -- look how skinny my risks are.

:09:32.:09:39.

He didn't stop. Anybody else, if you were not a police officer, you

:09:39.:09:44.

would be done for assault. In a second you are going to find out it

:09:44.:09:50.

is my friend's car, I'm insured to drive it, everything I've told you

:09:50.:09:56.

has been the truth. You lot ain't got nothing. No assault, nothing

:09:56.:10:00.

will stop you have to check the way that you deal with people, the way

:10:00.:10:03.

that you restrain people, practise it a bit more, practice people

:10:04.:10:07.

skills. You lot obviously haven't got any. I may be cheeky, but I'm

:10:07.:10:11.

not a criminal. I tried to explain once or twice why we did what we

:10:11.:10:16.

did. But, of course, he had his feelings on the matter and what

:10:16.:10:20.

ever. He didn't want to listen. In the end, I switched off and let him

:10:20.:10:24.

rant. In the end I think he got tired of his own voice and calmed

:10:24.:10:28.

down. Everybody is searched when they are brought into custody. Now

:10:28.:10:31.

the man has even more to feel aggrieved about. The cops have

:10:31.:10:38.

found his week. He didn't declare it. He waited until we found it,

:10:38.:10:41.

when the custody sergeant searched him. He wanted him strip-searched

:10:41.:10:48.

to see if there was any more. the screwdriver, you are on

:10:48.:10:50.

suspicion of possession -- possession of an offensive weapon,

:10:50.:10:54.

as well. He fails to stop for the police, he's got no insurance,

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:08.

possession of cannabis. But he's Sorted. A after the red dot, the

:11:08.:11:12.

red tape. However much the cops like having the Taser, they don't

:11:12.:11:16.

care for the paperwork that goes with it. Whenever anything happens

:11:16.:11:23.

with the Taser, whether it is the red dot, or if you do what they

:11:23.:11:28.

call arcane the Taser, if you take the cartridge off, or if you have

:11:28.:11:33.

deployed it fully, there is a Taser form and they use of force form

:11:34.:11:37.

that needs to be filled in. shopkeeper, he said he didn't do

:11:37.:11:41.

anything wrong, pleaded guilty to failing to stop the police and not

:11:41.:11:46.

being insured. He was fined �100 and given six points on his licence.

:11:46.:11:52.

He was not charged with possession of an offensive weapon or cannabis.

:11:52.:11:56.

20 miles from Bedford in Luton there has been some trouble on an

:11:56.:12:04.

estate. Somebody has had an axe thrown through their front window.

:12:04.:12:09.

Fortunately, the whole area is under CCTV surveillance and the man

:12:09.:12:12.

who did it has been caught with a large chain, making his getaway on

:12:12.:12:22.

It's not the normal kind of thing the traffic cops get involved with.

:12:22.:12:26.

But now they are Taser trained and the man has got a possible weapon,

:12:26.:12:36.
:12:36.:12:37.

they are in demand. PC Shona Gillen and Sam Sparkes are only getting

:12:37.:12:40.

sketchy information about what has gone on as they race to the scene.

:12:41.:12:45.

We've got a report of a bail that has smashed the window. We are not

:12:45.:12:49.

sure if he is still in the property. We have been given Taser authority.

:12:49.:12:54.

We are going, in the first instance, and as Taser officers. Offensive

:12:54.:13:03.

weapons, bade weapons of firearms, we are just a back-up system. An

:13:03.:13:09.

extra bit of help. -- bladed weapons. He's gone back to the

:13:09.:13:14.

address. This isn't at all like a routine traffic stop. It's a whole

:13:14.:13:21.

new ball game for Shona and Sam. The anxiety is tightened. We are

:13:21.:13:24.

going into a situation that we already know is potentially

:13:24.:13:32.

dangerous. RADIO: A man with combat style clothing, with a peaked cap.

:13:32.:13:36.

There is a man with a peaked cap up ahead. Is that him? We were

:13:36.:13:42.

informed by two PCSOs that they had stopped a male fitting the

:13:42.:13:47.

description of the offender. Could you left your top up for me? The

:13:47.:13:50.

one thing he didn't have was the chain. But it gave us enough

:13:50.:13:54.

grounds, the description. He could have dumped it. Do you mind if we

:13:54.:13:58.

need your bike up against here for a moment? Anything on you that will

:13:58.:14:03.

hurt me, my colleagues or anybody else? Any idea why I might speak to

:14:03.:14:06.

you? Please don't drop your trousers, I can't be doing with

:14:06.:14:11.

this sort of stuff. And not allowed such to touch you, because I am

:14:11.:14:16.

female and you are male. The man is not happy about it, he thinks he's

:14:16.:14:20.

been racially profiled. We don't know who you are. He was a bit

:14:20.:14:24.

annoyed. He did try to give us the impression that we stopped him

:14:24.:14:28.

because he was black. We explained that he matched a description.

:14:28.:14:33.

Description of what? A man involved in an incident. What kind of

:14:33.:14:38.

incident? I can't disclose that. I've got it, you're going to have

:14:38.:14:43.

to fill that out. His been confirmed over the radio that they

:14:43.:14:49.

haven't got the right man. The one they are searching for has just

:14:49.:14:59.
:14:59.:15:17.

They have got him. Well, almost. Go, Go! Taser! He is house tupping!

:15:17.:15:23.

He will be going round the back of the property! It was frustrating.

:15:23.:15:31.

We were so close and yet he sprung like spring chicken over the fence

:15:31.:15:35.

and we were never going to catch him. This chap still has the chain

:15:35.:15:43.

and he is will built. Because she had the Taser, I went to where he

:15:44.:15:48.

was last seen and then drove round to the other side of whether houses

:15:48.:15:58.
:15:58.:15:59.

could have come around. We need a unit here. We need another one...

:15:59.:16:05.

71, he was garden hopping 10 gardens down from Montrose Avenue,

:16:05.:16:12.

which will lead him... He has gone over the fence. Hello? Can I get

:16:12.:16:16.

into your back garden? One of the households came out and saw what

:16:16.:16:20.

was happening and they were very kind and let me go into their back

:16:20.:16:30.
:16:30.:16:30.

garden. Stand by. He has jumped over a fence. He is on foot, garden

:16:30.:16:37.

hopping. Unfortunately, Sam has been led right up the garden path.

:16:37.:16:43.

There is a little courtyard he could have got into. Sam did a

:16:43.:16:46.

thorough search of the gardens either side to see if he was hidden.

:16:47.:16:52.

More news has come in about the initial incident. We were told that

:16:52.:16:55.

an axe had been used to we are looking at a man who has already

:16:55.:16:59.

smashed a window, had made off from officers, was desperate to do

:16:59.:17:04.

whatever he could to get away by jumping over fences and definitely

:17:04.:17:07.

had quite a large chunky chain around his body and that if he

:17:07.:17:12.

needed to, he could have used that against an officer to get away.

:17:12.:17:22.
:17:22.:17:38.

RADIO: He has run off... INDISTINCT. While the man hunt goes on in

:17:38.:17:43.

Newton, back in Bedford it has been reported that there is another man

:17:43.:17:47.

carrying a potentially very dangerous weapon on the high street.

:17:47.:17:57.

Traffic cops with Tasers have been called in again. PC Carl climb

:17:57.:18:01.

the's service experience makes him just the man for the job. I was in

:18:01.:18:07.

the arm forces, I went to the Gulf war in 91, or where I got an injury,

:18:07.:18:11.

I was sent back with a broken arm and dry when straight from the army

:18:11.:18:16.

into the police. The man they are looking for have got a chainsaw. He

:18:16.:18:20.

is not doing anything threatening with it but the cops cannot afford

:18:20.:18:25.

to take it lightly. There is restaurants, cafes, banks, a

:18:25.:18:30.

pedestrian area and he has the chainsaw and a bottle of rum.

:18:30.:18:36.

He is obviously a threat to himself. The firearms team... We will see if

:18:36.:18:46.
:18:46.:18:54.

Pre-emptive Taser, OK? No questioning. In the back if

:18:54.:18:58.

possible. If there is anybody carrying a chainsaw, they will get

:18:58.:19:06.

tasered. We discussed possible tactics. We can't let him use the

:19:06.:19:11.

device. It is the lethal weapon. With alcohol, what we know already

:19:11.:19:17.

and the town centre? No. We came up with a plan. We were Taser in front

:19:17.:19:21.

of the vehicle just to incapacitate him. It is a full-scale alert. Lots

:19:21.:19:26.

of cops are heading for the scene. I don't think we will make it there.

:19:26.:19:30.

The fire engine sounds pretty close. The firearms officers have reached

:19:30.:19:40.

the scene first. He is in cuffs on the floor. All right. If you just

:19:40.:19:49.

Listen, I work as a landscape gardener! The man his only an

:19:49.:19:52.

honest woodcutter, he is claiming, and is just going about his

:19:52.:19:58.

business. I just went last night for a drink with one of my clients!

:19:58.:20:02.

This is shameful! There is nothing illegal on me! It must be something

:20:02.:20:06.

to do with someone at what don't like me because I am a good

:20:06.:20:11.

gardener. I want an apology, please. In front of all these people, you a

:20:11.:20:17.

shaming me. Turn around, I will put you down. Do that all you like, I

:20:17.:20:21.

have done nothing wrong. I got a bit drunk with our last night and I

:20:21.:20:26.

left my chainsaw at home, which I used for purposes and I can give

:20:26.:20:30.

you phone numbers and even tell you where I was last night. Despite his

:20:30.:20:35.

insistence that it is only gardening tools, the man's chainsaw

:20:35.:20:41.

is being seized at gunpoint. are taking a man's living away! You

:20:41.:20:47.

are taking my living away from me!! We are not. I have done nothing

:20:47.:20:53.

wrong! Jolly good. I am a tree surgeon? Are you going to nick me

:20:53.:21:00.

:21:00.:21:07.

citizen! Come on then, Sunni then, get some BEEP evidence! -- Sue me

:21:07.:21:15.

then. This is wrong! No, you...! Sit down. I am a hard-working

:21:15.:21:20.

citizen! You have nothing to worry about them. He was intoxicated, a

:21:20.:21:27.

very verbal, very anti-police. now very high rate. I pay my taxes!

:21:27.:21:33.

Look at them! I do everything! This is called anger! I am not allowed

:21:33.:21:38.

to be a citizen! It is a police state! It is a police state, not

:21:38.:21:45.

allowed to be a citizen! I am not going to kick off... You can't do

:21:45.:21:50.

this to me. Put your arms behind your back. You can't do this to me!

:21:50.:21:55.

How the hell can you do this to me?! I'd done nothing wrong! Leave

:21:55.:22:05.
:22:05.:22:06.

me alone, Mr police -- this is police brutality! BEEP off! What

:22:06.:22:11.

are you going to do, hold my hand? No, we are waiting for the van to

:22:11.:22:15.

take you back to the mix. Why? Because you are not being very

:22:15.:22:21.

civil. And you are not either! Why? Because I haven't got a black

:22:21.:22:27.

uniform? My grandad fought to stop idiots like this. This is a Nazi

:22:27.:22:33.

state. This is a Nazi state. Nazis! Nazis! My great grandad died for

:22:33.:22:39.

you! Look at this! The Nazis are here again! We are there to protect

:22:39.:22:44.

him and the public and ourselves and I am not a nap three. I am

:22:44.:22:50.

carrying my chainsaw, I worked with it yesterday, which I can prove.

:22:50.:22:54.

Somebody flipping help me! The only help that is coming is the police

:22:55.:23:01.

vans. He will be taken to the need to calm down and sober up. I am a

:23:01.:23:06.

law-abiding citizen! That hurts! What hurts? What are you doing with

:23:06.:23:11.

my hands? This isn't wrong! I am a law-abiding citizen and I have not

:23:11.:23:21.
:23:21.:23:21.

broken any law! I have broken no law! Listen!! Get in. Get this

:23:21.:23:27.

flipping Thing Off me! Tell me what law I have broken! Tell me what law

:23:27.:23:33.

:23:33.:23:40.

I have broken! Nazi state! -- tell me what laws I have broken! Tell me

:23:40.:23:44.

what laws I have broken! The it is not right to carry a chainsaw,

:23:44.:23:52.

which could be used as a weapon, in a public place. I think 999 would

:23:52.:23:56.

have gone ballistic, the number of calls we would have got. Walking

:23:56.:24:04.

around with a chainsaw? Not really... A good mix Jeff.

:24:05.:24:09.

There was never any real danger of a chainsaw Massacre. The good

:24:09.:24:17.

people of Bedford can breathe freely again.

:24:17.:24:21.

In Luton, the man suspected of putting in his neighbour's front

:24:21.:24:25.

window still haven't been found but a girl who knows him has and she

:24:25.:24:31.

has just been on the phone to him. Hello! Is he coming back? I just

:24:31.:24:35.

spoke to him, he is a bit frightened. He caused criminal

:24:35.:24:40.

damage but... If you can speak to him and tell him to calm down.

:24:40.:24:46.

I thought I would be cheeky and ask to speak to him. Babe? What is his

:24:46.:24:54.

name? John. John? It is the police. Listen, calm down, all right? You

:24:54.:24:59.

do need to speak to us, you know that, sweet. You need to come and

:24:59.:25:04.

speak to us but listen. Come to us and we can sort it out, all right?

:25:04.:25:09.

She is with me and she wants you to get it sorted as well. She is fine,

:25:09.:25:15.

she has given me the phone to speak to you so she is fine. Sam calmed

:25:15.:25:19.

him down and made him see sense and he had given himself up. Local

:25:19.:25:23.

bobbies have found and a vested John and in the meantime, it is

:25:23.:25:26.

becoming clear that this is a dispute between warring neighbours

:25:26.:25:31.

that had started the previous day. Because of what happened yesterday,

:25:31.:25:35.

he retaliated because I had to take my daughter to school... Having

:25:35.:25:40.

been chased by a woman with an axe, it appears John then returned it,

:25:40.:25:45.

with interest, through her window. Further information is coming to

:25:45.:25:51.

light from CCTV footage. While Sam and Shona were trying to catch John

:25:51.:25:55.

on his bike, back down the road, control room operators have seen

:25:55.:25:59.

that a woman was brandishing the axe and is then making sure she

:25:59.:26:09.
:26:09.:26:12.

It was her window that was smashed and she tried to take the law into

:26:12.:26:18.

her own hands by chasing after John. Sam and Shona need to get there

:26:18.:26:27.

She has thrown it into a garden which we have now recovered...

:26:27.:26:32.

Report of an axe and an offensive weapon being used. We were issued

:26:32.:26:36.

with a Taser authority and because other officers had come to join the

:26:36.:26:40.

search for this other chap, we have a fair few officers with Taser

:26:40.:26:50.
:26:50.:26:50.

authority. There. Yeah. When we turned up there were two PCSOs

:26:50.:26:55.

already and a lot of commotion from inside the property. She is in the

:26:55.:26:59.

window and she is agitated. If he knows her, that would make more

:26:59.:27:08.

sense. The woman's name is Angela and the cops know her well but they

:27:08.:27:14.

are taking no chances with her. turned up and he has had dealings

:27:14.:27:22.

with Angela in the past. Angela? Tim has a Taser as well so we both

:27:22.:27:28.

went into the property to speak to her while we stayed outside. I want

:27:28.:27:36.

to know why he put an axe in here! Just to let you know, 850 and 380

:27:36.:27:40.

got are inside the property. All divisional units have taken a step

:27:40.:27:44.

back and we are letting them deal with it to calm it down. For you

:27:44.:27:51.

could fill the house with offices and all it would do would

:27:51.:27:55.

antagonise the situation at whereas sometimes it is better to go in low

:27:55.:28:00.

key and try to sort it out. You are arrested me because I am swinging

:28:00.:28:04.

an axe! The young lady whose property it is, somebody threw an

:28:04.:28:07.

axe through her window, she picked it up and ran down the street with

:28:07.:28:12.

it. Instead of dealing with her as an injured person, we then had to

:28:12.:28:16.

deal with her as an offender because she had then been seen in a

:28:16.:28:22.

public place with an offensive weapon. Whatever the reason for it,

:28:22.:28:26.

the feud has got out of hand. need to get to the bottom of it

:28:26.:28:30.

because she is a potential witness to something so we could be looking

:28:30.:28:34.

at witness intimidation, which is quite a serious offence of stock we

:28:34.:28:42.

need somebody to board up my window. We will sort that out. Listen, I

:28:42.:28:46.

need my bits and pieces. You have had your methadone. Even though it

:28:46.:28:50.

was her window the axe was thrown through, it is Angela who is being

:28:50.:28:54.

arrested for possessing the offensive weapon. It CCTV can make

:28:55.:29:00.

a copy for us, we will arrange for it to be collected. She has calmed

:29:00.:29:05.

down a lot now. The only problem is keeping Angela Quinn it. She has

:29:05.:29:12.

broken my window with an axe. keeping Angela quiet. Angela...

:29:12.:29:18.

Angela... You are shouting, you on the phone. Come and get the axe you

:29:18.:29:24.

BEEP and this, that and the others. Take a seat, my friend. Why did he

:29:24.:29:31.

put an axe in my house?! OK. I have got a big hole in my window! I have

:29:31.:29:35.

got somebody waiting to get something repaired, I don't know

:29:36.:29:39.

what is BEEP going on but they are making me because I had an axe but

:29:39.:29:42.

I am trying to tell these people that a big user had an axe, blah

:29:42.:29:51.

All day scene is the way began axe. The guy is telling me to come

:29:51.:29:57.

around the corner. But the man smashed my flipping window on

:29:57.:30:03.

camera. She was on her phone to her a key worker. I had no issues for

:30:03.:30:06.

safety otherwise she would have been handcuffed. We were trying to

:30:06.:30:10.

keep her onside. She can be a handful, when she kicks off. She

:30:10.:30:14.

may be female, but when she wants to fight she can be fairly strong.

:30:14.:30:20.

I'm going off the phone, OK? All right, sweetheart. Your methadone,

:30:20.:30:27.

you've had what you need for how long? Half-an-hour... Only joking!

:30:27.:30:32.

Don't keep me in all night. would I want to keep you win all

:30:32.:30:36.

night? It's not good, the sergeant will hate you. When was the last

:30:36.:30:41.

time you were in? I muck up on a charge, Crown Court next week. Its

:30:41.:30:48.

total bullocks, you know what I mean? That ginger Scot. I hate that

:30:48.:30:52.

Ginger nut. He tried arresting me and knocked the methadone out of my

:30:52.:30:56.

mouth. When he jumped me, I flicked it by accident. He went over the

:30:56.:31:02.

city, he was getting his mace spray, like, crying, get your hands up! I

:31:02.:31:07.

was, like, idiot. You know what I mean? Angela is well known to

:31:07.:31:11.

Bedfordshire police, more so than a lot of officers. She's probably

:31:11.:31:14.

been in the police station more times than the officers of Bedford

:31:14.:31:18.

to police. Angela is going to be processed in custody and

:31:18.:31:22.

interviewed both as a victim and offender. She was physically

:31:22.:31:30.

searched, booked in. That is where our involvement ended with her.

:31:30.:31:34.

well as the Taser, Bedfordshire's traffic cops have the use of

:31:34.:31:41.

another recently introduced bit of advance the electronic kit, the

:31:41.:31:43.

automatic numberplate reader, the ANPR. It detects... Something is

:31:44.:31:51.

wrong! And it warns of any superstitious -- since --

:31:51.:31:55.

suspicious vehicle. In a quick glance eyesore that the vehicle and

:31:55.:32:00.

occupants were responsible for the supply of drugs. The ANPR instantly

:32:00.:32:04.

cross references of the registration plate with details

:32:04.:32:09.

held on the police national computer database. I've got a drugs

:32:09.:32:13.

vehicle on Harrowden Road, towards the Tim Pyke roundabout. The car

:32:13.:32:17.

has to be poor though band checked to see if there is any substance to

:32:17.:32:22.

the information. I can't see how many is in it. It may be worth

:32:22.:32:32.
:32:32.:32:33.

If you are on your own, the adrenalin goes at it. The governor

:32:33.:32:37.

what is in the car. You are always worried about have anything is

:32:37.:32:41.

going to be discarded as you drive along. Martin has got behind the

:32:41.:32:51.
:32:51.:32:54.

car, a silver Aldi. OK, buddy. The vehicle stood out. The windows

:32:54.:32:58.

are darkened. Without stereotyping, that sort of vehicle is

:32:58.:33:02.

predominantly used by people that like to be in possession of or

:33:02.:33:12.

It's pulling over, just be mindful of us, please. Without stereotyping,

:33:12.:33:21.

the man is not like the usual drugs dealer. He was quite a muscular lad.

:33:21.:33:26.

What is your name? Mervyn Dixon. The have I met you before?

:33:26.:33:30.

normally pretty good with phases. I'm not sure about yours. Have you

:33:30.:33:37.

got a licence? Whose car is it? It's my car. I very much aware of

:33:37.:33:43.

people's sighs, the body language. I recognised the face. But I just

:33:43.:33:49.

couldn't pin it down. Have you got any identification? If no, I

:33:49.:33:58.

haven't. I'll have a look. Is there anything in a vehicle that

:33:58.:34:08.
:34:08.:34:09.

shouldn't be in the vehicle? Martin has got a bad feeling about

:34:09.:34:14.

this man. He's going to search him. Everybody that get into my car,

:34:14.:34:18.

I've had it before when somebody produced a knife. So I'm going to

:34:18.:34:27.

party down. Martin's mate has turned up just in time. Taser! On

:34:27.:34:37.
:34:37.:34:42.

If he doesn't come down, he'll be in for a bit of a shop. Put your

:34:42.:34:52.
:34:52.:34:58.

Up you get, come on. What was that for? I was being fair with you.

:34:58.:35:03.

What was that about? Be honest, before I start digging. Its fine.

:35:03.:35:13.
:35:13.:35:17.

Why did you run off? Who is car is After having two Tasers pointed at

:35:17.:35:27.
:35:27.:35:38.

Don't pull away from me, it's not What is your problem?! It's a case

:35:38.:35:46.

of once bitten, twice shy. I've got something on me. Where? Well, it's

:35:46.:35:55.

drugs, isn't it? Get off him. trying to fight. He's not going to

:35:56.:36:02.

fight anybody, he's got cuffs on. An off-duty policeman is lending a

:36:02.:36:07.

hand. What have you got on you? Something in this pocket.

:36:07.:36:11.

reason for the desperate attempt to get away is now abundantly clear.

:36:11.:36:15.

You are under arrest on suspicion of being in possession of a

:36:15.:36:19.

controlled substance with intent to supply. You don't have to say

:36:19.:36:21.

anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when

:36:21.:36:24.

questioned something you later rely on in court. Anything you say will

:36:24.:36:29.

be given in evidence. Do you understand? I'd never been more

:36:29.:36:33.

relieved to see Tim than on that particular day. I think he did am

:36:33.:36:37.

absolutely fantastic job in stopping him. The guy -- run-off is

:36:37.:36:43.

a big bloke. Kim didn't have used that much force. The only tap his

:36:43.:36:47.

leg. Then it was a case of the bigger they are, the harder they

:36:47.:36:54.

Tim was the saviour on that day. Without him, the chase would have

:36:54.:37:04.
:37:04.:37:05.

gone further. You are killing me, mate. I can't feel my hands. Burden

:37:05.:37:15.
:37:15.:37:17.

has been left licking his multiple We'll get the ambulance when you

:37:17.:37:27.
:37:27.:37:28.

get into custody. We need another unit here to drive. That can go and

:37:28.:37:38.
:37:38.:37:41.

Get yourself down on their side. Martin has an idea where he might

:37:41.:37:46.

have got his muscles from. A lot of drug dealers aren't necessarily

:37:46.:37:51.

drug users. They genuinely look after themselves. However, if they

:37:51.:37:56.

are caught, and they do spend time at Her Majesty's pleasure, they

:37:56.:38:03.

have even more time to be able to work on their health, being able to

:38:03.:38:07.

build themselves up. It's not only sprinting and body-building, Mirfin,

:38:07.:38:17.
:38:17.:38:20.

it seems, goes in for ball games as Martin is a good sport and doesn't

:38:20.:38:25.

bear grudges. You were going all right, and then you did that.

:38:25.:38:29.

I'm going to try and get rid of it. If I Dobbin to you again, every

:38:29.:38:36.

time, irrespective, you are having handcuffs. No problem. -- If I bump

:38:36.:38:44.

With the amount of cash he had in his pockets, two mobile phones, it

:38:44.:38:51.

all goes towards the bigger picture, dealing with drugs. At the police

:38:51.:38:57.

station, its apparent just how big the drugs haul is. The size of half

:38:57.:39:00.

a blob of butter. It's crack cocaine, worth several thousand

:39:00.:39:08.

pounds. I just said, about your licence, he said, I know I'm doing

:39:08.:39:16.

bird. He's putting on the injuries a lot. I think he'll try to get out

:39:16.:39:24.

to hospital. You know, handcuffs and all three of us. After the

:39:24.:39:29.

inquest, there is time to relive the finer points of the rest will

:39:29.:39:33.

stop the bloke is running towards Tim. But this is the passenger seat.

:39:33.:39:43.
:39:43.:39:50.

Stay there! OK! One in custody. Right, that was stupid, wasn't it?

:39:50.:39:56.

Come back to the car. He's quite a big bloke. He's trying to pull him.

:39:56.:40:04.

We go down the bank. He was a very cool character. Albeit, he ran off.

:40:04.:40:08.

We used what we would say is reasonable and appropriate force at

:40:08.:40:12.

the time to restrain him. He never once offered violence towards us.

:40:12.:40:18.

However, that isn't to say that he would not. It's no wonder he was so

:40:18.:40:22.

desperate to get away. He had been in prison recently and was only out

:40:22.:40:26.

on licence. Being caught with a big lump of crack cocaine means he will

:40:26.:40:36.
:40:36.:40:39.

certainly be going straight back Despite inflation rate soaring, the

:40:39.:40:42.

street price of cocaine and crack cocaine has fallen by half over the

:40:43.:40:49.

last 10 years. It contributed to a alarming rise in class A drug abuse.

:40:49.:40:54.

You know the reason why you are here? On suspicion of possession

:40:54.:40:58.

and intent to supply, because of the quantity and the amount of

:40:58.:41:01.

money you had in cash. We have to have a chat about that, once we'd

:41:01.:41:06.

got the injury sorted out. He had to go to hospital to get his knee

:41:06.:41:11.

and shoulder checked out. He had a few superficial cuts on his hands

:41:11.:41:16.

from rolling on the ground when he initially fell over. But I think it

:41:16.:41:23.

all turned out to be OK. It was just tender around his knee and

:41:23.:41:28.

shoulder. Quite a large quantity of cash, two mobile phones. He's been

:41:28.:41:34.

arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply. Those facts

:41:34.:41:38.

are being relayed to the duty inspector, who has authorised what

:41:39.:41:43.

they call a section 18 search. That gives us the power to go around to

:41:43.:41:53.
:41:53.:41:57.

the House he lives that and carry I'll grab you a couple of blankets

:41:57.:42:05.

and a cup of tea. When darkness falls, trouble involving bored

:42:05.:42:12.

teenagers often erupts in many towns and cities across the country.

:42:13.:42:15.

There's MAL, chasing a group of youths with a metal bar.

:42:15.:42:19.

Surprisingly, Bedford, a small market town, sees more than its

:42:20.:42:29.
:42:30.:42:30.

Traffic cops Tanveer Hussain and Carl Klein are on their way to an

:42:30.:42:34.

incident on an estate. There was a report of a male with an iron bar,

:42:34.:42:41.

chasing a group of young males and females around the estate. About

:42:41.:42:47.

three minutes away. Just ask about The Informant, see if there is back

:42:47.:42:53.

up. It's a very dense housing estate. You are living on people's

:42:53.:42:58.

doorsteps. It's mostly terraced houses, backing onto houses. They

:42:58.:43:05.

have a communal play areas. The kids have nothing to do. It's just

:43:05.:43:11.

the recipe for antisocial behaviour. It was raining. Why they are not

:43:11.:43:14.

inside, I don't know. They are causing issues with the other

:43:14.:43:18.

residents. But these youngsters say it is not then, that adults that

:43:18.:43:24.

have stirred up the trouble. came out with a metal pole. He

:43:24.:43:28.

can't catch the boys, we girls, we don't see why we should be running.

:43:28.:43:33.

He says, if we can't get your boys, we will get some of you girls.

:43:33.:43:38.

Where is the house? I can take you up there. What does he look like,

:43:38.:43:44.

the old boy with a metal bar? about 44 stop wearing what? Pyjama

:43:44.:43:54.
:43:54.:43:55.

There are always two sides to the story. Carl is going to find out

:43:55.:43:58.

what the story is. Has there been an incident? They have been

:43:59.:44:04.

shouting, yes. Anything to do with this house? No. Anyone else in your

:44:04.:44:10.

house? My kids. No other adults? There was began arguing around

:44:10.:44:20.
:44:20.:44:20.

there. The kids were saying they were going to get the adult. Keep

:44:20.:44:30.
:44:30.:44:32.

the noise down. Dies, keep it schtum, yes? Shut it. -- guys.

:44:32.:44:35.

man they are looking for lives further up the alley. The estate is

:44:35.:44:39.

like a rabbit warren with a maze of paths and passageways. Everybody

:44:39.:44:49.
:44:49.:45:00.

Hello, it is the police, sorry to bother you. We have heard a report

:45:00.:45:09.

of disorder, some sort of incident? You are going to hurt my children,

:45:09.:45:15.

or you? So stay where you are. He is only a kid. This intimate, you

:45:15.:45:23.

come here... Inside, we will talk to you. The young lads appeared and

:45:23.:45:28.

it upped the ante. They walked past and there was a few choice words

:45:28.:45:33.

said between the two of them. has just come up with the

:45:33.:45:37.

allegation that one of you said you were going to rape his kids. No, no,

:45:38.:45:44.

no. That is what he said! This is after he chased us. They are

:45:44.:45:48.

outside his house making a lot of noise and his children are in bed

:45:48.:45:54.

silky politely ask them to move on and he got a torrent of abuse.

:45:54.:45:57.

Tensions are still running high between the youths and the two

:45:58.:46:03.

fathers. You keep pushing me on the estate, especially youth. You tried

:46:03.:46:10.

to kill me! You are getting into people's faces. He got into

:46:10.:46:17.

everyone else's face. Have you seen the reaction on that? But made it...

:46:17.:46:23.

Shut up, I am not talking to you. A have had altercations with you.

:46:23.:46:32.

threatened me. Me? You threaten my children again, you are BEEP dead.

:46:32.:46:37.

One of the guys was ex army, he was quite irate and I think if we had

:46:37.:46:42.

just walked away, the kids would have gone back and somebody would

:46:42.:46:50.

have got hurt. Why do you create the problems...? Tanveer and Carl

:46:50.:46:57.

need help before the situation gets out of hand. Hello guv. BEEP. I

:46:57.:47:04.

think it is a tinderbox. Residents, two angry men, fed up with youths,

:47:04.:47:08.

he has gone out with something and had to go off the tie gives. I

:47:08.:47:13.

think he has been spat at by a youth, threats had been made -- he

:47:13.:47:19.

has had a go at the youths. They are quite a rate. We need some high

:47:19.:47:23.

visibility to keep their children away. You try to speak to one party

:47:23.:47:27.

and you get other people coming in. There were five of them initially

:47:27.:47:34.

and now there are 10 or 11. Go, all right? Or we will start making some

:47:34.:47:41.

arrests. Get out! You are pushing me! Of am asking you to leave.

:47:41.:47:48.

Where are you going like this? have no idea. We have had a couple

:47:48.:47:53.

of problems beforehand. We have asked them obviously politely to go

:47:53.:47:57.

and they always get a bit, because they are in a group, they tend to

:47:57.:48:01.

end up together and they give you a lot of abuse, and they gave me a

:48:01.:48:07.

lot of abuse tonight, and obviously I saw red because they said a

:48:07.:48:10.

couple of certain things what they shouldn't have said about my

:48:10.:48:16.

children. They said I am going to rape your children. I went, what?

:48:16.:48:19.

And obviously lost it and chased after them and they all ran off

:48:19.:48:27.

because they are only young kids and that was it relief. I come back

:48:27.:48:30.

and obviously we had all this hassle and the police came out and

:48:30.:48:36.

hopefully it has been sort of, like, sorted out. We will get some more

:48:36.:48:40.

units down here and see if we can appease everybody. The they want to

:48:40.:48:46.

be noisy, fair enough but do it at your house, I don't care, don't do

:48:46.:48:51.

it around us. As a road traffic officer, this is not my cup of tea

:48:51.:48:54.

but we are here to help potential violence but if we can get rid of

:48:54.:48:58.

the young kids, hopefully the problem is solved and the safer

:48:58.:49:02.

neighbourhood teams can intervene but there is not much we can do.

:49:02.:49:06.

Something like tonight when the children on really, there should be

:49:06.:49:10.

something when we can put hands on bodies, take them home and get the

:49:10.:49:14.

parents to be responsible for the kids, no matter what age. If they

:49:14.:49:19.

are living at home, they should be responsible but as Tanveer says...

:49:19.:49:24.

Too far gone. You see this in every town and its East Street, you get

:49:25.:49:29.

kids just over 10 with nothing better to do -- every town and

:49:29.:49:33.

every street. Prime example, this chap sitting with his family, goes

:49:33.:49:37.

and asks them politely to move on, they are making too much noise, and

:49:38.:49:44.

this is the result of it. It is boredom if anything. We managed to

:49:44.:49:48.

disperse the children, my colleague spoke to the aggressor off their

:49:48.:49:51.

two men and told them in no uncertain terms that what he was

:49:51.:49:55.

doing was wrong and could be arrested but to arrest them in

:49:55.:49:58.

front of the kids, their Christmases would have all come at

:49:58.:50:06.

once, it is not the done thing. Trouble on an estate is one thing

:50:06.:50:12.

but trouble between a States is quite another. While Tanveer holds

:50:12.:50:18.

the fort, Carl has got more problems to deal with. This time

:50:18.:50:27.

postcode gangs are involved. A gang issue raised its head last year,

:50:27.:50:33.

the red and black bandana gains, MK42 and MK4, divided by the river,

:50:33.:50:40.

sporadic issues between them and between the police. A group of

:50:40.:50:44.

youths has congregated on the bridge between two Estates. Local

:50:44.:50:48.

officers with dogs have had a bit of success dispersing some of them

:50:48.:50:54.

but others are reluctant to go. my arrival, there were 20 on the

:50:54.:51:04.
:51:04.:51:09.

RAP MUSIC. When they are on their own, most of them are quite nice,

:51:09.:51:13.

normal human beings. As soon as they get into a group, there is

:51:14.:51:18.

this bravado of playing up to the police. Unless they get the

:51:18.:51:22.

dispersal order from a court, a lengthy procedure, there is little

:51:23.:51:26.

the cops can do about yobs congregating apart from requesting

:51:26.:51:32.

they move on, which takes manpower. We have a dedicated van at weekends,

:51:32.:51:35.

with special constables patrolling, to bolster numbers because we do

:51:36.:51:39.

need that. We are thin on the ground anyway and with these sorts

:51:39.:51:45.

of incidents, we will attend them and disperse and record any details

:51:45.:51:50.

all offences. No one has been arrested for any offences but with

:51:50.:51:54.

several police dogs on hand, one of the youths is claiming he has been

:51:54.:52:03.

bitten. Has the? I have got three bite marks! One there! That is

:52:03.:52:12.

where you fell off your bike. Yeah? One there! I got BEEP bitten!

:52:12.:52:21.

Get off me! Hold on, what are your resting before? Grab him. Wait

:52:21.:52:28.

there. ATOC was let his beforehand on some troublemakers -- a dog.

:52:28.:52:31.

Unfortunately for him, he has now been arrested because he was

:52:31.:52:36.

possibly one of them. If they are committing public order offences we

:52:36.:52:41.

will deal with them but if they are not, it is purely dispersal. Gangs

:52:41.:52:45.

have spread here from London and are of such concern that the police

:52:45.:52:49.

have has signed an officer especially to deal with them.

:52:49.:52:53.

think they are imitating Los Angeles Galaxy, the American

:52:53.:52:57.

presence whether trousers are warned halfway down your backside,

:52:57.:53:00.

it is a status symbol where your bank and is on your body depending

:53:00.:53:05.

on your rank. It is a major issue but it could will spiral out of

:53:05.:53:11.

control -- where your bandana is on your body. It is 3:30am and after

:53:11.:53:17.

having kept the peace in MK42, Carl has been called north of the river,

:53:17.:53:23.

to an incident in MK4. That is black bandana area, where most of

:53:23.:53:29.

those reside. The rate is from the south of the town. Somebody has

:53:29.:53:33.

called in reporting two young men smashing a bus shelter.

:53:33.:53:37.

description was really good, and mixed-race male with a knife and a

:53:37.:53:42.

white male with an iron bar. It is a matter of leapfrogging the roads

:53:42.:53:47.

and searching. Stand by. Carl has spotted

:53:47.:53:52.

something. I thought two men matching that description standing

:53:52.:53:56.

under an archway to a block of flats. Being in an unmarked police

:53:56.:54:01.

car, Carl has managed to creep right up on the men. As I got out

:54:01.:54:06.

and I saw one of the Mail's holding an iron bar with a bandana.

:54:06.:54:12.

A whatever you have got, drop it. Carl is ready for anything. I have

:54:12.:54:17.

got a Taser, drop it. Put your arms out to the side.

:54:17.:54:22.

One male has made off, with a yellow top. I have one others with

:54:22.:54:28.

a red dot and a metal bar. Sorry? Whatever, the man that has gone has

:54:28.:54:33.

got a yellow top. Turn around and put your hands on the wall. Hands

:54:33.:54:41.

up. Spread your legs. I am going to set you. Have you got a knife?

:54:41.:54:46.

Do not move. Seeing a red dot and been told that

:54:46.:54:49.

it is a police have also with the Taser, nine times out of 10 people

:54:49.:54:53.

will drop their weapon, stop what they are doing. If they don't burn

:54:53.:54:57.

the device will be activated and they will be incapacitated.

:54:57.:55:02.

What is your mate's name? Give him a shout for star I don't know him.

:55:02.:55:08.

Is that your bandana? I put it on the floor, brother. You have got

:55:08.:55:14.

your cuffs round my ankles. I will release it in a minute. Were you

:55:14.:55:17.

involved in criminal damage at the bus-stop?

:55:17.:55:22.

I got the blow with the iron bar so I assume the mixed race mail had

:55:22.:55:26.

the knife. It is a mixed-race man with a

:55:26.:55:32.

yellow top who went off where I am now through the flats.

:55:32.:55:36.

Do you want to put your trousers up a bit so you can walk properly?

:55:36.:55:43.

Yeah? I said pull them up. Come on into the car. Bring my bandana.

:55:43.:55:48.

will bring it back. We show the Taser with the red dot

:55:48.:55:54.

and they stop, or whatever they do. Normally they will fight. To evade

:55:54.:55:58.

police capture, Babel fight. But now they are thinking twice. --

:55:58.:56:07.

they will fight. It is eight months bath. And his

:56:07.:56:17.
:56:17.:56:17.

bandana, which he is so worried about. -- weights bar. The gangster

:56:17.:56:21.

is going to be taken in for questioning while Carl resumes the

:56:21.:56:27.

search for his friend with a knife. He didn't even know it was old bill

:56:27.:56:31.

at first. He was in possession of death. He put it down. Thank you.

:56:31.:56:41.
:56:41.:56:42.

OK. Carl has called for if sniffer dog. I am waiting around the back

:56:42.:56:47.

for the sniffer dog. If he has gone passed this way, there will be a

:56:47.:56:52.

fresh track and I do not want to contaminated. There is a man out

:56:52.:57:00.

there with a knife. He knows the old Bill are looking for him now.

:57:00.:57:05.

Two great big holes in the Perspex bus shelter. I should think that

:57:05.:57:10.

the glass got smashed so many times, they put it back with Perspex. It

:57:10.:57:14.

would have taken a big whack to smash it. Probably from the metal

:57:14.:57:18.

bar we have recovered. In the end, Lama was insufficient evidence to

:57:18.:57:24.

link the man with the bandanna who happened to be carrying an iron bar

:57:24.:57:26.

with a damaged under the bus shelter so he was released without

:57:26.:57:32.

charge or stop -- with the damage done to the Bath jotter so he was

:57:32.:57:37.

released without charge. The man who claimed the police were all

:57:37.:57:41.

Nazis was released without charge after sobering up. His chainsaw was

:57:41.:57:50.

returned to him. Mervyn Dixon had tried to escape the Taser cops and

:57:50.:57:56.

was sent back to prison, serving four years and eight months. No

:57:56.:57:59.

further action was taken against Angela for running around with an

:57:59.:58:03.

axe that was used to smash a front window. Nor were any charges

:58:03.:58:08.

In the dead of night, cops disarm a gang member by 'red dotting' him with the laser light from a new weapon in the police's arsenal, the Taser.

Introduced to combat potentially dangerous offenders, the Taser is no longer just in the hands of specialist firearms officers; in Bedfordshire, the 50,000-volt stun gun is now standard issue for all the force's traffic cops.
