During his day pounding the streets with Volunteer Officer Beattie, Chief Commissioner Miekelson is unconvinced changing a homeless man's socks really is in the line of duty. "It's tedious work and whatever we're paying them it's not enough, and in Ken's case, it's nothing at all," he muses.

There's more to being in the Scot Squad than pulling on a high vis jacket for traffic enforcers PC Singh and McKirdy. They reveal the perks of policing including public respect and free kebabs. However, when an emergency call comes in, an iced windscreen forces PC McKirdy to make a munchy box improvisation.

PC Fletcher's chuffed to bits to discover she's the police poster girl of a new bus stop campaign. Partner PC Jack McLaren's not bitter... well maybe just a little.

Elsewhere, Sgt Karen Ann Miller acts as a reluctant police station tour guide for regular visitor Bobby; call centre worker Maggie Le Beau reveals how she stays awake during a nightshift; and PCs McIntosh and MacKay's attempts to settle a domestic bust-up go awry.
