A BRITISH film crew has been tailing migrant police officers around Clarkson recently.

Acting Senior Sergeant Darren Lumb said a film crew, Air Television, had been filming officers at Clarkson Station in August.

The footage will be used for a documentary about British officers recruited by WA Police and other Australian police departments.

With plans to cover a couple of weekend shifts as well, Sgt Lumb said the documentary, Emergency Services Downunder, would aired in the UK by the BBC in January.

He said most of his local policing team, which cover Mindarie, Quinns Rocks and Tamala Park, were originally from the UK.

Sgt Lumb said he served with the UK police from 1998 until he moved to Perth 7½ years ago to join WA Police.
