We follow the story of a young offender called Adam (played by an actor), who interacts with real professionals in the Metropolitan Police to illustrate what happens after a person is arrested. We meet DC Shane O'Neill, the investigating officer, whose role is to interview the young person to try to establish if he is indeed the culprit, and if there is enough evidence to charge him with an offence.

The class could discuss: "What is the difference between being arrested and being charged with an offence? How does the interviewing police officer use evidence during the interview and what are the advantages of this approach? What are the factors affecting Adam's likelihood of offending?"
