Highway Patrol is an Australian factual television series screened on the Seven Network that premiered on 21 September 2009.[2]

About the show[edit]

Highway Patrol follows members of the Victoria Police Highway Patrol (formerly the Traffic Management Unit) as they intercept traffic and other criminal offenders on major highways in Victoria, Australia.

The show depicts the police involved in high-speed police chases, attending major road accidents, confronting out-of-control drunk drivers as well as issuing lesser penalty notices to drivers.[3] Each episode follows the progress of a select few incidents involving various Highway Patrol officers, from the first encounter by the officers through to the officers leaving the scene, with the exception that occasionally the officers will escort a driver back to a police station for the purpose of a breath or blood sample. Fines, court convictions and demerit points issued in relation to each incident are shown in a voiced-over addendum at the end.

Highway Patrol is produced by Greenstone TV, makers of New Zealand's Motorway Patrol with the co-operation of Victoria Police,[4][5] and airs in Australia on the Seven Network.

Internationally, it is also screened in New Zealand on TV2,[6] Denmark on Canal 9[citation needed], Norway on Canal 9[citation needed] and the United Kingdom on ITV4[7] and Pick.[8][9]
