Cops on the Rock shows the extraordinary work of Gibraltar’s police and customs forces as they uphold the law on this tiny British overseas territory, home to just over 30,000 people. Gibraltar’s unique location as the gateway to Europe, with Morocco just nine miles across the sea, means the police force come face to face with international traffickers and drug dealers on a daily basis. We follow the marine customs officers, equipped with state-of-the-art speed boats who chase smugglers attempting to transport multi-million-pound cargos of cannabis into Europe. The officers also rescue economic migrants stranded in sinking boats or help out tourists in trouble. On land, the police deal with everything from death threats to drink drivers. The Drug Squad face a continuous battle to bust cocaine and cannabis dealers. We’re with them on dawn raids, as they ambush drug dealers and we witness the discovery and seizure of huge hauls of drugs.
