Gold Coast Cops

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 7.30pm, One

This well-made, char­ac­ter-based fac­tual se­ries pre­mieres on this rather blokey chan­nel. From pro­duc­tion com­pany Eye­works, who has also given us Ter­ri­tory Cops, Kal­go­or­lie Cops and the bril­liant, eye-open­ing Kings Cross: ER, the 10parter fol­lows the work of the Gold Coast’s hand­picked po­lice task­force known as the Rapid Ac­tion and Pa­trols group. Orig­i­nally formed in re­sponse to the in­fa­mous Broad­beach bikie brawl in Septem­ber 2013, the group now tack­les ev­ery­thing from street vi­o­lence to or­gan­ised crime. Tonight there are home­made ex­plo­sives hid­den in a Hell’s An­gel’s car and a stolen ve­hi­cle trig­gers a po­lice chop­per-led car chase.
