Next week Channel 4 is showing Spring’s HOW TO STAY OUT OF JAIL following an elite police team whose extraordinary mission is to not to send criminals to prison. Based in County Durham each year the local police apprehend thousands of offenders accused of everything from drugs to assault to child neglect or domestic abuse. Some offenders are given a once in a lifetime chance to reform and cancel out their crime by joining a tough 16-week scheme. If they fail it’s off to court and possibly prison.

Directed by Jemma Gander with Assistant Producer Martha Baily. The Executive producers were Kathy Myers and Richard Melman
