Series 1, Episode 3
It isn't all sweet tablet, tattie scones and teacakes in Scotland especially not for the new unified police force.
This week, Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie finds himself in the middle of a domestic ding dong between warring neighbours; PC's McKirdy and Singh uncover ice-cream van dodgy dealings; and Chief Commissioner Miekelson gives his unique insight into how to tackle excessive drinking.
A karaoke commotion puts Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie in between two hot-headed neighbours. However, his peace suggestion sees him step up to the mic thanks to pushy partygoer Jamie-Leigh.
Traffic Cops PCs McKirdy and Singh's interest is spiked by a dodgy looking ice-cream van. When they discover it's trading in booze and not sweets they arrest the perpetrator but not before PC McKirdy pulls himself an ice-cream cone.
Excessive drinking is an issue for the police force and Chief Commissioner Miekelson offers his own insight. "Alcohol's fine - we're against bam juice," he says. "Keep the expensive stuff as it is, make the bam juice cost £100 a bottle. Problem solved."
PCs McIntosh and MacKay aren't amused when they have to investigate a smash and grab at an arcade. A trail of money takes them to the harbourside, leading to an adventure across the water.
Elsewhere, Bobby isn't happy when he's met by a new, unfamiliar face at the police station; an anti-capitalist protest takes an unexpected turn for PC Fletcher and PC McLaren; and call centre worker Maggie Le Beau explains why it's important to keep her cool.
