See how the police work; CRIME.

A POPULAR behind-the-scenes peak at police station life in Birmingham is to be launched again.

The Behind the Badge programme aims to give the public a look at life on the beat for bobbies tasked with keeping the peace in the city centre.

Borrowed from America, the groundbreaking scheme was first launched at Steelhouse Police station last year.

It proved so successful officers have decided to again open the doors to the public.

Organiser Insp Nick Halligan said: "The scheme is ideal for those people who don't feel safe coming into the city centre, don't know how the police are doing, or have fears and opinions based on watching police TV dramas or media reports."

Participants can observe officers at work and visit police cells and ops centre, which includes CCTV. The adults-only programme starts tonight and runs every Tuesday evening over five weeks. To book a place, call 0845 113 5000 ext 7861 6300
