Chief Commissioner Cameron Miekelson launches the force's new logo during a live BBC Radio Scotland interview with Fred MacAulay. That's if he can get past security first.

Scotland's roads can be a dangerous place but rookie traffic cop PC Hugh McKirdy is happy to get up to speed with his new policing partner, PC Surjit Singh.

In the countryside, officers McIntosh and MacKay's peaceful Sunday morning shift is disrupted when they stumble upon a disorientated drunkard sleeping under a bush.

And when the sun goes down in the city, it's time for PC Jack McLaren and PC Sarah Fletcher to shine as they go in search of a two headed snowman wanted in connection with a street assault.

Meanwhile, Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie is on the lookout for a recurring counterfeit criminal outside the Beyonce gig; call centre worker Maggie Le Beau reveals the weird and wonderful enquiries she handles; while desk sergeant Karen Ann Miller deals with Bobby Muir's latest dilemma - a missing pooch called Fridge.

May the force be with you.


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