-Police!

0:00:040:00:05

-The police - often the first call

-in an emergency.

0:00:070:00:10

-Port Talbot, Friday night!

0:00:110:00:12

-On the front line

-in the war against crime...

0:00:130:00:16

-One woman called us because she

-wanted help to hang her curtains!

0:00:160:00:20

-..and in the battle

-to protect the public.

0:00:210:00:24

-Our cameras had exclusive access

-to the police in the Swansea area...

0:00:260:00:30

-..as officers

-respond to emergency calls.

0:00:320:00:35

-They hate you, they spit on you

-and they assault you...

0:00:350:00:40

-..but when something happens

-to them, they call us.

0:00:410:00:45

-The drugs team.

0:00:450:00:47

-The drugs team.

-

-One-nil to Morriston!

0:00:470:00:48

-And the public protection unit.

0:00:500:00:53

-I'm never shocked

-by what people wear, say or do.

0:00:530:00:57

-Hello and welcome to Swansea!

0:00:570:00:59

-Access all areas.

0:01:000:01:02

-Get out! I don't want that.

0:01:030:01:04

-Forget your preconceptions.

-This is the reality of police work.

0:01:060:01:11

-Oh, bugger off!

0:01:120:01:13

-It's not always

-about catching criminals.

0:01:150:01:18

-We get calls from people who can't

-decide what to have for lunch.

0:01:180:01:22

-Welcome to the South Wales Police

-Control Centre, Swansea.

0:01:230:01:28

-There is no other job...

0:01:280:01:31

-..where you don't know

-what you'll see or where you'll go.

0:01:310:01:35

-No other job can compare to it.

0:01:350:01:37

-Swansea. Wales's second city.

0:01:580:02:01

-It's home to 230,000 people...

0:02:010:02:03

-..a tiny minority of which

-has little regard for the law.

0:02:040:02:09

-I'm Lance Chamberdale

-and I'm from London.

0:02:110:02:14

-Keeping the peace is a full-time job

-for 579 police officers.

0:02:160:02:21

-You expect to deal with burglars...

0:02:210:02:24

-..robbers and thieves...

0:02:250:02:27

-..but I'd say that's just

-a small part of the job.

0:02:270:02:31

-Swansea Central Police Station,

-the Western Division headquarters.

0:02:320:02:38

-The front desk is open

-24 hours a day.

0:02:380:02:41

-The control centre

-receives 1,000 calls every day.

0:02:410:02:45

-South Wales Police. Can I help you?

0:02:460:02:48

-Up to 27 people

-can be detained in the cells.

0:02:480:02:52

-The building is opposite

-the magistrates' court.

0:02:520:02:56

-In 2011, almost 5,000 Swansea

-residents appeared in court...

0:02:560:03:00

-..for drug-related offences.

0:03:010:03:03

-I deal with drug crime

-almost every day.

0:03:060:03:09

-The police in Swansea deal with

-drug-related crime every day.

0:03:100:03:15

-It's a growing problem.

0:03:160:03:18

-We never saw cocaine

-and party drugs a few years ago...

0:03:190:03:22

-..but today, drugs are everywhere.

0:03:230:03:26

-People may think drugs

-are a problem for the police...

0:03:260:03:30

-..but they're a problem for society.

0:03:310:03:34

-It's said almost all crime

-has its roots in drugs.

0:03:350:03:40

-Maybe I'd agree with that.

0:03:420:03:44

-It's Tuesday morning

-and the Morriston drugs team...

0:03:450:03:49

-..faces a very busy day's work.

0:03:490:03:51

-Under Operation Atlas,

-five warrants are issued...

0:03:520:03:55

-..to target users and dealers.

0:03:560:03:58

-..to target users and dealers.

-

-Amphetamine, cannabis and cocaine.

0:03:580:04:01

-We're not sure who's there,

-so safety first.

0:04:020:04:05

-Let's see what we can find.

0:04:050:04:07

-We carry out as many checks

-as possible before we go in there.

0:04:090:04:13

-It's a close-knit team

-and that's the way it's got to be.

0:04:130:04:17

-It does get its hairy moments.

0:04:180:04:20

-Police!

0:04:200:04:22

-Clear the rooms downstairs!

0:04:260:04:28

-Alright, boy?

-Switch that off for me please, pal.

0:04:290:04:33

-Stuart Bufton

-finds a 13-year-old boy...

0:04:330:04:36

-..in the house in Clydach.

0:04:360:04:38

-We make sure everything's secure

-and everyone's safe...

0:04:400:04:44

-..then we can start

-to search the house for drugs.

0:04:440:04:48

-The boy's parents are in the house,

-as is his 18-year-old brother.

0:04:480:04:54

-Do you take anything else but weed?

0:04:540:04:56

-No? You don't inject, do you?

0:04:570:04:58

-No? You don't inject, do you?

-

-No.

0:04:580:05:00

-The adults are handcuffed and

-they're soon talking to the police.

0:05:010:05:05

-They're saying there's two bags of

-weed, a small joint and a Lynx can.

0:05:080:05:13

-What sort of example are you setting

-if you're smoking?

0:05:130:05:17

-He's only 13 years of age.

-It's not a good example, is it?

0:05:170:05:21

-They start taking cannabis

-at a young age, as a social thing.

0:05:220:05:26

-When you talk to them, they say,

-"I don't want to be on this."

0:05:270:05:31

-"It's the devil!"

0:05:310:05:32

-"I don't want to take it

-but I'm stuck."

0:05:320:05:35

-We found cannabis and amphetamine

-on the lad downstairs...

0:05:370:05:41

-..and on the man upstairs.

0:05:420:05:44

-They've been arrested and they'll

-be dealt with in Swansea Central.

0:05:440:05:49

-They'll be interviewed

-and we'll get the drugs analysed.

0:05:490:05:54

-Operation Atlas is also under way

-in the centre of Swansea.

0:05:580:06:02

-Community Officer

-Angharad Willmett...

0:06:020:06:06

-..walks the streets

-with specially-trained dogs.

0:06:060:06:09

-We're really proactive in Swansea.

-We try to keep on top of it.

0:06:100:06:14

-We have undercover teams

-and high-visibility teams too.

0:06:150:06:19

-We're tackling the problem

-in Swansea.

0:06:190:06:22

-Drugs reach the city

-mainly from London and Liverpool.

0:06:240:06:28

-The police know only too well

-the effect it has.

0:06:290:06:33

-It takes over an addict's life.

0:06:340:06:36

-They need a fix

-morning, noon and night.

0:06:370:06:40

-That's all they think about.

0:06:400:06:42

-On Wind Street, the police are using

-a four-legged weapon against drugs.

0:06:420:06:48

-Dogs play a big part in operations

-because they can smell drugs.

0:06:490:06:54

-That gives us more grounds

-to carry out a stop and search.

0:06:540:06:58

-What's your surname?

0:06:580:07:00

-I was on duty one day and the dogs

-found drugs on a woman.

0:07:010:07:05

-She was carrying

-over 500 Ecstasy tablets.

0:07:060:07:09

-The funny thing is, she'd written

-a message on her trainers.

0:07:090:07:14

-It read 'Want drugs? Come see me'!

0:07:140:07:16

-Police in the Swansea area stopped

-and searched 2,722 people in 2011.

0:07:170:07:22

-It helps if you're

-a good communicator...

0:07:230:07:26

-..but some are stopped regularly,

-so they're used to it.

0:07:270:07:30

-Yes, the police in Swansea

-see the same old faces all the time.

0:07:310:07:35

-Officers get to know

-some of their clients.

0:07:360:07:38

-They know me as Gavin,

-not as PC Williams.

0:07:390:07:42

-I go and visit them

-and we become friends, in a way.

0:07:450:07:48

-People do ask how we can have

-a relationship with these people...

0:07:480:07:53

-..but we see more of some clients

-than we do of our own families!

0:07:530:07:58

-We form some sort of a relationship

-with people like that.

0:08:000:08:04

-When I go to arrest them

-and they fight me...

0:08:050:08:08

-..I feel hurt because I thought

-we had an understanding.

0:08:080:08:13

-It's 9.00pm on a Monday...

0:08:190:08:21

-..and one of Gavin's regulars

-has dialled 999.

0:08:210:08:24

-It's that woman over the road.

0:08:250:08:27

-She's been telling people in

-the village that I'm a paedophile.

0:08:280:08:32

-They're usually alcoholics

-or drug users.

0:08:320:08:38

-They don't work and I think

-they're bored a lot of the time.

0:08:390:08:44

-What's happening?

0:08:450:08:46

-She's had a phone call off him -

-a dirty phone call.

0:08:470:08:50

-Dirty phone calls off him

-and he threatened her.

0:08:500:08:54

-He is a dirty old man.

0:08:540:08:56

-He is a dirty old man.

-

-Hey now!

0:08:560:08:58

-You feel like telling them

-to grow up...

0:08:580:09:02

-..but you can't because

-you've got to be professional.

0:09:020:09:06

-It's hard not to laugh.

0:09:070:09:08

-Why are you texting her,

-if you don't have contact with her?

0:09:090:09:12

-I've seen texts on her phone

-from your mobile.

0:09:120:09:15

-Not my mobile!

-My phone's on the table.

0:09:150:09:18

-Let's check your phone.

0:09:180:09:20

-It's really hard to deal

-with alcoholics and drug addicts.

0:09:210:09:26

-You never seem to get a lot of sense

-out of them and they're never sober.

0:09:260:09:32

-I don't talk to her or text her.

-I haven't even got her number.

0:09:330:09:37

-Honest to God!

0:09:380:09:39

-Honest to God!

-

-What's that then?

0:09:390:09:41

-We're the police

-and it's our job to deal with crime.

0:09:430:09:47

-We can only do so much...

0:09:480:09:50

-..then someone else must step in

-and take action.

0:09:500:09:54

-Many calls made to Swansea Central

-are genuine emergencies...

0:09:570:10:02

-..and the police

-respond immediately.

0:10:020:10:05

-We're going to a house in Cymer

-in the Afan Valley.

0:10:050:10:09

-A family dialled 999 because

-they're worried about their brother.

0:10:090:10:15

-They think he may be suicidal.

0:10:160:10:18

-Instinct. In the car on the way

-there, I knew it could be bad.

0:10:210:10:26

-Do I have to put the door through?

-If so, what's behind the door?

0:10:260:10:32

-Sergeant Justin Knight is on his way

-to help a community officer.

0:10:320:10:37

-He knows the family.

0:10:370:10:38

-If he's worried,

-it's time for me to be worried too.

0:10:390:10:43

-That also goes

-for the people on my shift.

0:10:430:10:46

-I know when I'm told certain things

-it's a potentially serious call.

0:10:460:10:51

-He's been off all week

-and he's got mental health issues.

0:10:510:10:55

-Yesterday, he went to the house and

-he had a red mark around his neck.

0:10:580:11:03

-Justin's going to talk to the family

-who called the police.

0:11:040:11:08

-This is the sergeant.

0:11:080:11:10

-Hello, sergeant.

0:11:110:11:13

-When did you speak to him last?

0:11:130:11:14

-When did you speak to him last?

-

-This morning.

0:11:140:11:16

-Does he leave it ages

-before he speaks to you?

0:11:160:11:19

-No, he'd ring me back.

0:11:190:11:20

-No, he'd ring me back.

-

-He hasn't got a phone by him?

0:11:200:11:22

-Nothing.

0:11:220:11:24

-We'll put the door through.

-We'll let you know what's happening.

0:11:240:11:28

-Before I joined the police,

-I'd never seen a dead body.

0:11:290:11:33

-Families are in shock

-and we help them.

0:11:330:11:36

-I think, "We're the police,

-so we've got to do it."

0:11:370:11:40

-That's my attitude

-towards those incidents.

0:11:400:11:43

-Gav! It's the police it is, Gav!

0:11:470:11:49

-Police!

0:11:490:11:51

-Gav, it's the police!

-Sergeant Justin Knight and his team

-are responding to an emergency...

0:12:000:12:05

-..at a flat in Cymer,

-near Port Talbot.

0:12:050:12:08

-They're worried

-about the owner's health.

0:12:080:12:11

-Gav! It's the police!

0:12:110:12:13

-Gav! It's the police! Hello?

0:12:130:12:15

-Gav, are you alright?

0:12:170:12:18

-Yes!

0:12:180:12:20

-It's the police!

0:12:200:12:22

-Are you alright? Sorry, pal.

0:12:220:12:24

-Why didn't you answer the door?

0:12:240:12:26

-I'm alright, yes.

0:12:260:12:28

-What's that on your neck?

0:12:310:12:33

-You've hurt your neck.

-How did you do that?

0:12:330:12:36

-I did get upset, boys.

0:12:360:12:37

-I was a bit upset.

0:12:380:12:40

-The family are asking

-will you go down and speak to them?

0:12:400:12:44

-We'll leave you alone then.

0:12:440:12:46

-I'll check if I broke your door.

-I hope I haven't.

0:12:460:12:50

-Some of these people

-have huge problems...

0:12:500:12:53

-..and I think the system

-has let them down.

0:12:530:12:56

-This man had some serious issues

-and he had very little hope.

0:12:570:13:02

-But his family was worried...

0:13:030:13:05

-..so someone does care about him

-and someone wants him to be OK.

0:13:060:13:10

-With that incident,

-I was happy to have found him.

0:13:110:13:15

-False alarm.

-He was asleep on the settee.

0:13:150:13:18

-He feels alright.

0:13:180:13:20

-He doesn't want us

-to take any sort of action.

0:13:200:13:23

-I've let the family know he's fine,

-so we'll go on to our next job.

0:13:240:13:29

-In 2011, police in the Swansea area

-dealt with 793 sudden deaths.

0:13:350:13:40

-The people on my team and

-my colleagues in general do worry.

0:13:420:13:47

-I deal with an incident and move on.

-That's my personality.

0:13:480:13:52

-It's sad, but you get used

-to seeing awful things...

0:13:530:13:56

-..like the bodies of people

-who have hanged themselves...

0:13:560:14:00

-..or people killed

-in horrific road accidents.

0:14:010:14:04

-You become hardened to it.

0:14:040:14:06

-The public...

0:14:070:14:08

-..doesn't come across it very often.

0:14:080:14:10

-It's hard to explain what I've seen.

0:14:110:14:13

-People's response is, "So what?"

0:14:130:14:16

-You know immediately if there's

-a dead body inside a property...

0:14:170:14:22

-..just by opening the letter box.

0:14:220:14:25

-It's a really distinctive smell

-and you never forget it.

0:14:250:14:30

-I've been lucky enough

-not to have a really smelly one...

0:14:310:14:35

-..which has been there

-for weeks or months.

0:14:350:14:38

-I may yet get one of those

-in the future.

0:14:380:14:41

-The smell definitely stays with you.

0:14:420:14:45

-I had one about three weeks ago.

0:14:450:14:48

-Two or three hours later,

-you can still smell it.

0:14:480:14:51

-It stays in your nostrils

-for a few hours.

0:14:510:14:55

-I went home after work and I could

-smell it again five hours later.

0:14:560:15:00

-I thought... oh!

0:15:010:15:03

-Some drinkers

-in a Swansea city centre pub...

0:15:060:15:09

-..are about to get a visit

-from the Operation Atlas crew.

0:15:100:15:14

-We're told there's a lot of drugs

-in the pub, so we'll pounce on them.

0:15:150:15:20

-We'll see who's there.

0:15:210:15:23

-When we go to a raid, we know

-if the intelligence is right...

0:15:230:15:28

-..it should run like clockwork.

0:15:290:15:31

-I'm quite excited.

0:15:320:15:33

-I'm ready, so let's get there!

0:15:340:15:36

-The police are in the pub and

-it's about to be turned upside-down.

0:15:360:15:41

-The dogs have already done well.

0:15:410:15:43

-Whose jacket is this?

0:15:440:15:45

-Is it yours, sir? OK.

0:15:460:15:48

-Come over and I can

-take some details from you.

0:15:480:15:51

-You've got some items in your pocket

-and I need some details.

0:15:510:15:55

-The dog was in luck...

0:15:550:15:57

-..but the intelligence didn't work

-quite as well over in Pontarddulais.

0:15:570:16:03

-You're having a giraffe!

0:16:030:16:05

-Where is the garage?

0:16:070:16:08

-We do carry out detailed checks and

-we refer to sketch plans and so on.

0:16:160:16:21

-There were no gates there,

-so we went over the wall.

0:16:220:16:25

-You weren't lost?

0:16:250:16:27

-You weren't lost?

-

-Not at any point, no!

0:16:270:16:29

-How much is there?

0:16:300:16:31

-The team has received a tip-off

-about a drug dealer.

0:16:340:16:37

-Officers begin to search the garage

-and the sheds.

0:16:370:16:43

-We find them under baths,

-in toilets, in attics...

0:16:430:16:47

-..and hidden among food in freezers.

0:16:470:16:50

-We check everything.

0:16:510:16:52

-He eats well anyway!

0:16:520:16:54

-In the pub, Angharad has emptied

-the coat's pockets...

0:16:550:16:59

-..and she has found some cannabis.

0:16:590:17:02

-These are your three wraps.

0:17:020:17:04

-Three items.

0:17:050:17:06

-He told us it was for personal use

-and only he himself used it.

0:17:070:17:11

-He told me

-he used it to help him sleep.

0:17:120:17:15

-He's been arrested and he'll go

-to Swansea Central police station.

0:17:150:17:19

-He'll be interviewed and we'll check

-the text messages on his phone...

0:17:190:17:25

-..to find out

-if there's more to the story.

0:17:250:17:29

-I glanced at his phone and there

-is something significant on it.

0:17:290:17:34

-Some people do claim

-that cannabis helps them sleep.

0:17:350:17:39

-I don't know if it's true.

0:17:390:17:41

-I have no sympathy for him.

0:17:410:17:43

-He knows drugs are illegal

-and he shouldn't carry them.

0:17:440:17:48

-Meanwhile, Constable Stuart Bufton

-thinks he's made a significant find.

0:17:500:17:55

-There are bags in here

-and it looks like cannabis.

0:17:570:18:00

-We'll do the official sniff test.

0:18:000:18:03

-It's mint from the garden!

0:18:030:18:05

-It just looks suspicious.

0:18:050:18:07

-I thought that stuff was there

-to mask other smells.

0:18:080:18:12

-I'm not an expert.

0:18:120:18:14

-We looked at it.

-It could be, it could not be.

0:18:140:18:17

-We'll take it

-to be on the safe side.

0:18:170:18:19

-The police also found bags which

-they think include amphetamine...

0:18:200:18:25

-..and prescription drugs.

0:18:260:18:28

-It's all sent off to be tested.

0:18:280:18:30

-It's the best job in the world.

-We take drugs off the streets.

0:18:310:18:35

-It's just misery.

-It's nice to get rid of it.

0:18:360:18:39

-I don't understand people

-who disrespect the police.

0:18:430:18:46

-We've had a nice chat.

-They're as good as gold.

0:18:460:18:49

-Mam, I love you!

0:18:510:18:53

-I haven't hit anyone.

-He hit me and I walked off.

0:18:530:18:57

-My jaw's killing.

0:18:570:18:59

-Wind Street is busy at the weekend.

0:18:590:19:02

-People come down from the valleys.

0:19:020:19:03

-People come down from the valleys.

-

-S4C!

0:19:030:19:06

-Crazy! There's no other word for it.

0:19:060:19:09

-Don't put me on camera.

-My mother will kill me!

0:19:090:19:12

-We see people in a state!

0:19:120:19:14

-Some can't stand up.

-Some can't speak.

0:19:140:19:17

-Yes, you've got to be very patient.

0:19:180:19:21

-People think it's fine

-to come over and pick us up...

0:19:210:19:25

-..and mess around.

0:19:260:19:27

-I say, "I'm working! Go away!"

-but they don't understand.

0:19:280:19:32

-A lot of people come up and say

-their drink has been spiked.

0:19:320:19:36

-Then it turns out they had

-six pints in the first pub...

0:19:370:19:40

-..and four shots in the next pub...

0:19:410:19:43

-..but they're convinced there was

-something in that last pint!

0:19:430:19:48

-It's Jimmy Krankie - look!

0:19:480:19:51

-I tell them I've got nits,

-but they still try my helmet!

0:19:520:19:57

-"She's pregnant. Can she use

-your helmet as a toilet?"

0:19:580:20:03

-Do you wanna look at my bum?

0:20:030:20:04

-They ask for a lift home,

-especially when we've got the van.

0:20:050:20:09

-"Oh, you're married?

-Do you want to leave him?"

0:20:090:20:12

-Don't put that on!

-I'll be divorced!

0:20:120:20:15

-It's a long shift, but seeing women

-wearing next to nothing...

0:20:150:20:19

-..certainly keeps our spirits up.

0:20:200:20:23

-I wear more to bed

-than they wear to go out!

0:20:240:20:27

-You'll never see me out like that!

0:20:270:20:30

-Up to 20,000 people have a good time

-on Wind Street every weekend.

0:20:310:20:37

-Several police officers

-see it all on horseback.

0:20:370:20:41

-The problem is,

-people drink too much.

0:20:420:20:46

-They don't know when to stop.

0:20:460:20:49

-This young student

-fits into that category.

0:20:490:20:53

-He's drunk...

0:20:540:20:55

-..and he decided to throw himself

-under the police horses.

0:20:550:20:59

-If my horse had trodden on you,

-it'd be my fault.

0:21:000:21:03

-We're going to give you

-a Section 27 warning.

0:21:030:21:06

-A Section 27 is an instruction

-to leave the centre of Swansea.

0:21:070:21:12

-He could have been killed.

0:21:120:21:14

-That's the bottom line.

0:21:140:21:16

-He's lucky

-he only had a Section 27 notice.

0:21:160:21:19

-Ten miles away, in Port Talbot...

0:21:200:21:22

-..the effects of what was probably

-a cocktail of drugs and alcohol...

0:21:220:21:27

-..needs urgent police attention.

0:21:270:21:30

-Did he call me "gyppo"?

-I'll smash him up!

0:21:300:21:33

-Will you do me a favour?

-Get out of my way!

0:21:330:21:36

-Drugs make them unpredictable.

0:21:380:21:40

-If they're also drunk,

-it's really hard to talk to them.

0:21:410:21:45

-The atmosphere changes

-after ten o'clock.

0:21:490:21:52

-They're even more drunk

-and they're looking for a fight...

0:21:530:21:57

-..or the drugs have kicked in

-and they alter people's behaviour.

0:21:570:22:02

-We take more stick than ever.

0:22:020:22:04

-There aren't enough of us

-to enforce zero tolerance.

0:22:050:22:09

-We need a camera here to show them

-how they behave when they're drunk.

0:22:100:22:15

-They always say

-they've done nothing wrong.

0:22:150:22:18

-If there were no alcohol or drugs

-in the world...

0:22:190:22:22

-..the crime rate would fall

-pretty sharply, in my opinion.

0:22:220:22:26

-The Operation Atlas teams did well.

0:22:300:22:32

-They made 31 arrests and confiscated

-40,000 worth of drugs.

0:22:330:22:38

-The bags did contain mint,

-but illegal drugs were also found.

0:22:400:22:44

-Their owner was charged

-and he's awaiting his day in court.

0:22:450:22:49

-Despite being warned

-to leave the city centre...

0:22:500:22:53

-..the drunken student returned

-within the hour.

0:22:540:22:57

-He was arrested

-and he spent the night in a cell.

0:22:580:23:02

-He was given an official warning,

-which will remain on his record.

0:23:020:23:06

-He's bitten me, he's battered me.

0:23:080:23:10

-Next time, Swansea police deal

-with what they call domestics...

0:23:100:23:15

-..the helicopter searches

-for a missing old lady...

0:23:160:23:19

-Don't touch my steward

-like that again!

0:23:200:23:22

-..and policing

-Premiership football matches.
