Media Appearances of Law Enforcement Agencies

Dan Coelho made this Freedom of Information request to Nottinghamshire Police

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Nottinghamshire Police should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

I am writing to request information on media appearances by Nottinghamshire Police (and preceding agencies) in a documentary style, such as but not limited to ‘Road Wars’, ‘Police Interceptors’, ‘Brit Cops’ etc, where a camera person(s) is deployed with police officers and are followed throughout their tour of duty. This is for the time period 2003 to present.

I would like to know;
Name of production
Production Company
Policing Unit(s)/Investigation(s)/Operation(s) followed
Status of Unit (active/disbanded/reformed/reorganized)

I would also like to know the current stance on 2021 (ignoring COVID-19) for these types of shows to be filmed with Nottinghamshire Police - are they encouraged? If encouraged, are you actively engaged in filming currently, and if so, what production? If not encouraged or banned, is there reasoning behind this, for example a negative experience/portrayal previously?

On a similar line, police forces used to sell dashcam footage as ‘filler’ in these documentary shows, between their own self shot material. Does Nottinghamshire Police sell dashcam, or otherwise make them available?

Dear Freedom of Information,

Please provide an update ASAP, as this is well over the 20 days now and the request is long overdue.

Please do not take the fact that it has not been chased as reason not to action it, I have left a larger period of time as I understand the impact COVID-19 has had on team working, information gathering and collaboration.

I look forward to your prompt response.
