Chief Commissioner Miekelson consults PR guru Willie Saffron and pushes through his ground-breaking 'Bamnesty' initiative. The media has a field day when the idea backfires - heads must roll over this PR disaster.

Traffic Officers Singh and McKirdy deal with their own public relations nightmare over a kebab backlash in the papers and solve a maritime mystery on a deserted island.

Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie brings his blue light sensibilities to big city red light zone. Ken gets caught in the crossfire when ladies of the night become ladies in a fight. Says Ken: "Some people think heroes come as fireman or as people dressed as bats. I like to think heroes are women in high heels and poor hygiene."

Officers McLaren and Fletcher break-up a bust-up at a supermarket as Tam Spraggins loses the plot in the self-service queue. Meanwhile, in the countryside, McIntosh and Mackay encounter the worst type of citizen to make an arrest.

Long-suffering desk sergeant Karen Ann Miller gives Bobby advice on lewd behaviour and noodle forks, while call centre operator Maggie LeBeau reveals that some callers look for romance in between reporting crimes.
