Northern Sheffield is under the spotlight in ‘Police under pressure’, a prime-time BBC documentary.
With police across the country facing huge budget cuts in the current times of austerity, the force in South Yorkshire are also facing pressure to reduce crime figures and climb form the bottom of league tables.
This quandary is examined in the series, which delves behind the scenes in areas such as Ecclesfield, Parson Cross and Foxhill as officers aim to improve their statistics before a crucial inspection.
Proactive work is potentially spoiled when a gang randomly attack a number of cars on a street, ending with an assault on a driver, and other serious crimes squeezing already valuable resources.
