The first of a series of police video compilations from Labyrinth Media
28 December 2009 | by (Lancashire, England) – See all my reviews

"Police Stop!" was the first episode in a series of compilations of Police traffic videos from Labyrinth Media, which spawned a number of follow-up series such as "Police Camera Action". It is presented and narrated by Graham Cole, who appears in uniform as his PC Stamp character from "The Bill". The documentary consists of several long chase sequences interspersed with collections of shorter themed videos, concerning aspects of safety such as dangerous overtaking or bald tyres. There are also videos taken from helicopters showing their role in tracking chased vehicles.

All of the clips are from British police forces, which presumably allowed them to be published in the interest of promoting safer driving and, equally importantly, letting drivers and criminals know that their infractions could now be recorded and played in court.

Although it was commonplace for US police departments to release footage, this was still a rare event in Britain in 1994. Later episodes of Police Stop would become increasingly reliant on foreign footage, suggesting that the UK police had become concerned about video footage being used solely for entertainment.

Some of the same video clips were later used on ITV's "Police Camera Action" and similar programmes, with sound effects dubbed on and, in some cases, the videos' date stamps being blanked out in an attempt to disguise the age of the videos. In "Police Stop!" there is no dumbing down - we see the videos in their original state, complete with in car conversations and police radio traffic, and the only addition is Graham Cole's narration and a little unobtrusive background music.
