Frequently Asked Questions
As the heading says - we do get asked some questions quite regularly - so we've compiled a list of those questions. Please check this out before contacting the Webmaster.
The Proactive Unit - like any specialist team - takes officers for a limited period. This period, called 'Tenure', is a fixed period of years after which the officer must leave the unit. In the case of the Proactives, this is normally three years. In some cases, the period has been as much as five years - but generally officers leave after three. They then move onto other duties. While one did reappear in series six, this was for operational reasons rather than his choice to return to the Unit - Chris explains why in his interview. Conversely, this is not the case with the Road Crime Unit, and the officers there will remain in post until they choose to move on. Life's funny that way, isn't it?
Unfortunately, for a range of reasons, Thames Valley Police has decided not to continue with Road Wars. We know that a lot of people want it to go back there, but we feel it's important to emphasise that this is extremely unlikely. Fortunately, this decision has not meant the end of Road Wars, as the programme has moved to Devon and Cornwall, picking up with the Road Crime Unit, Tactical Aid Group and Dog Squad.
No, I'm afraid we can't. It's illegal, and we don't encourage anyone else to do it. We also don't have links to any downloading sites which might have episodes available as no episode of Road Wars has been made available for either sale or legal download. If there's a particular episode you want to see, you will have to wait for Sky to repeat it. Sorry!
Not all the officers have provided interviews for us. Either they never got around to it, or chose not to. This is their prerogative and we respect that. If you can't find pictures of an officer, this is simply because they have asked not to be featured. Again, we respect their choice and do not feature them. Similarly, we respect the privacy of the individuals who appear in the programme being dealt with by the officers. They are not shown in any of the pictures we put up, and are not identified in any of the Interviews or Episode guides.
Sorry, no. We don't have any direct contact with the officers who appear on Road Wars. We do not have any means of contacting them, and cannot pass on messages. It's important to emphasise that these are real people - not actors - and therefore we respect their privacy. Please don't ask us to contact them for you.
