The Beat Goes On

Inspired by the election of Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales. The drama explores the tensions that are sparked when politics and policing are mixed.
Peter Livermore is a newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner who passionately believes he can be a force for good and make a difference to how his community is policed. He learns hard lessons about the realities of contemporary policing, and political compromise when he clashes with a Chief Constable with an iron will and no interest in having her position undermined.
