The Bill: Supt Chandler assigns DC Spears to a project involving CCTV cameras in the Sun Hill area. Much to Sgt Ackland's annoyance, she takes PC Carver with her, and they have words. Spears tells Ackland to take it up with Chandler. But word is getting around that Spears gets special treatment from the boss. When a number of cameras are damaged, two youths who have threatened one of the operators, Pat Spencer, are suspected, but the culprit turns out to be Robert Slade, whom the youths call "weird". Then Spears discovers Robert lives in community care and thinks the cameras are spying on him. Robert spends a lot of his time in an internet café and tells PC Hollis about his homepage, where Hollis sees a picture Robert has taken of a shopping centre security guard, Tony Malone. He is being given an envelope by known robber Roger Franklin, who has just finished doing time. DI Cullen assigns DS Singh and DC Spears to find out how all these disparate players are involved. Then Pat Spencer is attacked, her husband is seen talking to Tony Malone, and the police suspect something is about to go down. Why would her husband be talking to known robbers? Pulled in for questioning, Barry Spencer confesses that he exchanged information about the warehouse he works at, in return for having his wife's attackers beaten up. Under pressure, he then reveals that Roger Franklin and his gang plan to rob the warehouse that night. Cullen heads the stakeout, but it goes awry when Robert Slade turns up in the middle of the robbery and is taken hostage. But they eventually trace his mobile and arrest Malone and Franklin. Chandler praises Spears in front of the whole relief, saying it was her project that helped to catch the villains in the act. But Barry Spencer brings her a video showing that his wife had been watching the youths on the CCTV for some time, and maybe it was being under constant surveillance that caused them to turn to crime. Spears is deflated, but Ackland tells her that it might have happened anyway! [Source: www.abc.net.au]
