Front Line Cop. Increasingly, the new police constables are involved in the confrontations of today's violent society. Anna is one of the few women called in to police a football match at Crystal Palace when rioting breaks out; the ambulance strike takes Natalie into the front line, as police vans and army ambulances are pressed into service. Faz finds himself on duty near Trafalgar Square during the poll tax riots; and Denzil, worried about life in uniform, feels there is still too much prejudice inside the ranks - and quits. That leaves only five out of the seven who started two years ago. Where will the recruits be in a year's time? A future series will find out.
