Nabbed_pic11-rgt-borderThe series is filmed in and around a surging, frustrating, expanding Super City. It’s home to 1.5 million Aucklanders and one million vehicles. Every now and then there’s going to be problems.  New initiatives were needed to crack down on boy racers, rule breakers and drink drivers.

Nabbed_05Strategic police units are now deployed all over the city. Monitoring the regions roads, to keep criminals out of circulation.

Introducing the men and women of the Road Crime, Traffic Alcohol and Road Policing Teams. It’s not a job for everyone. It takes patience and a sense of humour to deal with drivers, who drive everyone else to distraction.

‘Action-packed, with a good dose of character is what sets Nabbed apart from other cop shows on air’, reveals Producer Tash Christie. ‘From the roadside to booze bus, frontline police talk us through the incidents, providing fresh and often funny insights into what it takes to keep the idiots off our roads’.
