A group of famous faces will take to the streets of Cambridgeshire in a bid to help tackle crime.
This isn't a new cost-cutting measure from our under pressure forces, to supplement their resources, but part of a new TV series.
Channel 4 has announced that a show called Famous and Fighting Crime is to feature TV stars pounding the beat alongside propper coppers from the Cambridgeshire force.
TV presenter Katie Piper, Loose Women panellist Penny Lancaster, Made in Chelsea’s Jamie Laing, Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle and comedian Marcus Brigstocke are taking part.
Cambridgeshire Police say it will help showcase the work of the force to a wider audience.
The famous crime fighters will be with Cambridgeshire Constabulary, responding to real 999 calls, working in custody, and even CID, as well as taking part in high risk drugs raids and keeping order in rowdy city centres at the weekend.

Of course they're not the first celebrities to fight crime. Tom Hardy chased down a moped thief, while Sherlock Holmes star Benedict Cumberbatch intervened to protect a cyclist.
