Produced by Firecrest Films, the programmes will follow the police as they “fight every kind of crime in the country’s most spectacular – and challenging – places.”
David Harron, commissioning executive for BBC Scotland says: “Highland Cops proved to be a hugely popular series with audiences across the UK and particularly in Scotland so we’re delighted to be investing in its return for a further two series. The cameras will once again capture the challenges faced on the country’s biggest police beat and follow a cast of officers who show us what it takes to police such a vast area. Highland Cops is a key title in our strategy to showcase and reflect Scotland to audiences both within Scotland and also across the UK.”
Tom Coveney, Commissioning Editor, BBC Factual says: “With the most jaw-dropping scenery in the UK, and the most amazing range of crime-fighting, Highland Cops is a truly distinctive blue light documentary. I can’t wait to see the stories Firecrest uncover across the two new series.”

It was commissioned by Louise Thornton, Head of Commissioning BBC Scotland and Jack Bootle, Head of Commissioning, Specialist Factual.
