Pass the Person

Faced with a vulnerable young man Alfie asks how far he can go to protect the man's life without his consent.

Experienced police officer and comedian Alfie Moore with the fourth episode in the current series. 'Pass the Person' deals with the very sensitive issue of how the police deals with people with mental health problems and what they can do if there's a possibility they may harm themselves. When does 'protection' become 'intrusion'. Few could manage to handle this very serious and troubling subject with humour, but Alfie's compassion and genuine concern for those involved means that he can.

As usual Alfie asks his audience what they would have done in his shoes and hears some of their own true stories.
