Double recommission for Highland Cops

Following a highly successful debut run, the BBC has ordered two new series of Highland Cops, to go in to immediate production.

The recommission is for twelve hour-long episodes, made up of two 6 x 60 series, following Police Scotland’s Highlands and Islands division, Britain’s most unique police force. It will air on BBC Two and BBC Scotland.

From protecting endangered species to searching for people missing in the wilds, these officers go to extremes; keeping people safe in remote communities, in wilderness areas, and Britain’s most northerly city.

Covering 12,000 square miles of lochs, glens, islands and mountains, Police Scotland’s Highlands and Islands division is Britain’s biggest beat.

This series charts the incredible diversity of incidents which these officers are called to on a daily basis. The crimes the force deal with range from major national incidents to local, community incidents and on the beat crime-prevention.
