A brand new BBC television series which shadows a handful of Dyfed-Powys Police recruits is set to air tonight - Monday.

Following the largest recruitment drive in its history, Rookie Cops follows seven new recruits to Dyfed-Powys Police on their new career journey.

People from all walks of life applied, from scientists to soldiers and electricians to golfers, to start a completely new career in the police force. This brand new series charts the recruits during the final stages of their training.

They have twelve weeks on the beat with a tutor, who will decide if they’re good enough to go it alone.

This brand new series gives viewers an insight into the police force in a way rarely seen before, going deeper than arrests and criminal activity with profiles that explore what drives someone to give up an established career for their dream of becoming a police officer.

Covering over 4,000 square miles, Dyfed-Powys Police is the largest police force area in Wales and England.

In the first episode, it’s Emma’s first day on the beat and she hosts first briefing and attends her first drugs bust in Llanelli. In Milford Haven, former electrician Gethin nervously awaits a VIP visit from the Chief Constable and heads out with his no-nonsense tutor, Carla.

Meanwhile, over in Lampeter, former charity trainer Lisa is following intelligence that a man is carrying an offensive weapon on a busy bus and learns the importance of keeping her bearings when she’s on a major incident.

The first episode of Rookie Cops airs tonight [Monday, April 1] at 8pm on BBC One Wales.
