24 ordinary people - from a wide variety of backgrounds including lorry drivers and travel agents - are about to make a life changing decision. They are to become Police Officers. With rare, intimate access to the Lincolnshire Police, the trainees and their families, Rookie Cops reveals what it is like to be dropped into the front line of law enforcement without any experience and how this impacts their loved ones. Filmed over one year this series focuses on the ‘breaking in period’ - the toughest and most emotional part of the training process. As the new recruits venture out onto the streets under the watchful eye of an experienced veteran it is a baptism of fire. They come face to face with the area’s most violent criminals and learn to deal with an abusive public who does not respect the police. In this first episode, we see 26-year-old Jack, joining up means finally moving out of the family home and away from his worried parents; it also means he’ll be forced to do his own laundry for the first time. 35-year-old Dee finds the long unsociable hours actually brings her closer to her family – especially her estranged father. And 46-year-old Mark, one of only six black police officers in Lincolnshire, explains why his parents raised him to fear the police rather than join them. http://www.itv.com/presscentre/ep1week29/rookies
