Premiering Monday, February 5 at 7.30pm on Channel Nine
Viewers will be able to get close to the real-life heroes and villains of the law in a groundbreaking new program, The Code: Crime and Justice, premiering on Channel Nine on Monday, February 5 at 7.30pm.
In an Australian first, The Code: Crime and Justice features unprecedented access to the officers of the Victoria Police and the rulings from inside the Magistrates’ Court.
Narrated by William McInnes and produced by Craig Graham (RPA), the half-hour series captures the full range of emotions faced by the people involved in the judicial process – from perpetrators and frontline officers, to the magistrates, prosecutors and lawyers who preside over the courts.
The Code: Crime and Justice reveals to ordinary Australians a different side of two of our bedrock institutions, the police and the courts, as dramatic stories of suburban sieges, drug raids and homicide investigations unfold every week.
Nine Network Director of Programming, Michael Healy, said: “This is an Australian first that won’t disappoint. “
The Code: Crime and Justice tells the full story – when the crime happens, we’re there. When it goes to court, we’re also there. We get to see the whole picture of crime and justice as it unfolds in real time.”
Magistrates’ Court of Victoria Chief Magistrate, Ian Gray, said: “The program’s purpose is to inform and educate the public about the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria.”
Victoria Police Chief Commissioner, Christine Nixon, said: “I’m extremely proud of all the work Victoria Police and all police do – this partnership with Channel Nine provides a fantastic opportunity for the public to experience that work.
“We’ve opened up our organisation so that people can see the challenge facing police in providing safer communities.”
