PC Jack McLaren and PC Sarah Fletcher break up a domestic dispute, employing very different approaches to the problem.

Elsewhere, Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie buys soup for the homeless and reassures an angry victim of washing line theft. Back at the station, Sgt Karen Ann Miller deals with the public including regular 'informant' Bobby Muir.

Scot Squad also gets behind the wheel with traffic cops PC Surjit Singh and PC Michael Urquhart as they investigate an instance of bad parking; meets 999 call centre operator Maggie Le Beau and police partners PC Charlie McIntosh and PC Jane McKay.


This episode was originally scheduled for broadcast at 10pm on Monday 5th November 2012, but pulled just a few hours beforehand due to a tragic news event.

A re-edited version of the pilot episode was broadcast in the preceding week to Series 1, on Monday 27th October 2014. The edits brought in better quality graphics and changed Miekelson's rank from Chief Constable to Chief Commissioner.
