This week, urban cops PC Jack McLaren and PC Sarah Fletcher get their teeth into a disagreement between TV presenter Jean Johannsen and a local chippy; Acting Sgt Ken Beattie deals with bams while pushing a pram; and traffic cops PC Surjit Singh and PC Hugh McKirdy weed out the wicked.

Further details

Police partners PC Jack and PC Sarah tuck into conflict resolution after a chippy chancer sneaks a snap of celebrity Jean Johansson without her permission. Unhappy the takeaway's using her face to shift fish suppers, Jean calls on the cops to cool things down with the deep fat fryer. Jean likes a chippy but didn't agree to this particular pizza the action.

Being a traffic cop often means a bumpy ride, but PCs Singh and McKirdy are derailed by local man Tam Spraggan's unique pot hole problem-solving with some horticultural help.

Acting Sgt Ken Beattie is king of community policing and, this week, he's left holding the baby. Out on the streets he quickly discovers patrolling the beat with a wee one gets big results.

Also this week, hyper sleuth Archie Pepper discovers love bytes when new colleague, Annie McInnes, joins his one-man tech-team.

Chief Commissioner Miekelson finds himself caught on camera in a compromising position while Detectives Squire and McGill play their unique 'Guessing Game' to catch a criminal.

Rural police officers PC Charlie McIntosh and PC Jane McKay uncover a dodgy escape room by an entrepreneurial farmer while Sgt Karen Ann Miller deals with Bobby's mask malfunction to keep him safe.
