A new television series will highlight work of the Bermuda Police Service and Royal Bermuda Regiment coastguard.

The 15-episode series, tentatively titled Policing Paradise, will be shown on the BBC in Britain.

According to a police spokesman, a producer from British television production company Spun Gold Studios visited Bermuda this year to explore the possibility of making the series.

The film crew arrived in Bermuda last week and will mostly document “feel-good” stories for the next seven weeks, according to the spokesman.

They are also working with the Bermuda Tourism Authority and Method Media while on the island.

The spokesman added: “This TV programme is designed to show Bermuda, the BPS and the RBR coastguard in a good light, while encouraging UK citizens to consider visiting the island.”

Martin Weekes, the Assistant Commissioner of Police, encouraged people to make the crew feel welcome during their stay, “as they are here to show Bermuda in a positive light”.

The BPS senior leadership team will review all footage before it can be included in the series, and all proposed episodes will be vetted by the BPS before release for broadcast.
