Bedfordshire Police is back in the spotlight as part of the new series of a police documentary.
BAFTA-nominated Channel 4 show 24 Hours in Police Custody started on Monday, with an hour-and-a-half special.
The first episode focused on the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit investigating the death of Sharon Fade, 45, whose body was discovered in undergrowth in Long Meadow, Houghton Regis, last September.
The second episode on Monday will follow the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit as they tackle organised crime and counter terrorism – including an investigation into a Luton drugs line, nicknamed Kane Line.
Jackie Sebire, assistant chief constable for Bedfordshire Police, believes the show is important to highlight the force’s work.
