Frontline Fightback: Episode 7 (S2EP7 BBC One Tues 5 July 2022)



We observe the electronic GPS tags that are being attached to thousands of repeat offenders, including burglars, robbers, and thieves, and the frequent 24/7 surveillance of their movements. Probation officer Suzanne Bennett tells the programme that, in her experience, no-one wearing one of these tags has reoffended.

Sgt. Tony Webb of the West Midlands Police is in danger when a man approaches him directly while brandishing what appears to be a gun. But when backup arrives, body-worn cameras record the exciting scenes, including when the man drops his weapon and is taken into custody. The most recent bodycams can be set to activate automatically, ensuring that incidents like this are always recorded, and footage like this can be essential evidence.
