PC Simon Towers isn't an ordinary sort of police officer.

His patch, Chipping Norton School in Oxfordshire, isn't a usual kind of beat.

One of a pioneering breed of school-based police officers, he is a friend, confidante, advisor, even teacher as well as a law enforcer.This morning's programme follows PC Towers in a job which may call on him to deal with violence, vandalism and petty crime; but which is more likely to involve anything from helping pupils cope with the tragic death of a classmate, to apprehending a South American rhea escapee from a local farm.
