Hull police to star in new BBC One series Neighbourhood Blues
THEY spend their days walking the beat on the streets of Hull.
And now the work of the city's neighbourhood police officers will be showcased on national television.
Officers from Hull feature in a new series of the BBC One series Neighbourhood Blues, which starts on Monday.
Chief Inspector Dave Houchin, who heads up neighbourhood policing in the city, said: "Police officers and PCSOs deal with very difficult and stressful situations all the time, but putting them in front of a television camera can still strike fear into any of them.

"The show will give the people of Hull and the nation a unique opportunity to see the great work that goes on daily."
Policing teams from across the city were followed by the cameras for three months for the show, which was filmed earlier this year.
Chief Insp Houchin said: "Neighbourhood policing is incredibly diverse and complex, which challenges and rewards in equal measure.
"People can expect to see a wide range of police responses to neighbourhood needs and the skills and professionalism demonstrated by officers in dealing with those needs."
Neighbourhood Blues, which also features officers from the south bank, is the latest in a series of television shows featuring Humberside Police. Officers from the force have also be seen in the BBC One series Traffic Cops and The Lock Up, which focuses on the custody suite at Priory Road police station.
The latest series includes the discovery of a large cannabis factory.
Series producer David Howard said: "It shows a dimension of police work that a lot of people don't even realise goes on.
"It really provides a fascinating insight into the wide and diverse role of the community police officer and their work reducing crime and, more importantly, responding to the concerns of the community.
"Police in Hull can be seen doing everything from discovering a large cannabis factory to, at the other end of the spectrum, visiting burglary victims to offer reassurance."
Neighbourhood Blues will be shown daily on BBC One from Monday to Friday at 9.15am. It runs for two weeks.
