THE PAST WEEKEND, A STUDENT AT GEORGIA TECH ARMED WITH A

POCKETKNIFE WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN A STANDOFF WITH THE POLICE.

ON SOCIAL MEDIA, PEOPLE ONCE AGAIN SAID, THE COPS REALLY HAVE

TO SHOOT.

WHERE WAS THE TASER?

THERE MUST BE A BETTER WAY.

MAYBE THERE IS.

>> THE UNITED KINGDOM, A PLACE WITH PLENTY OF VIOLENT CRIME.

BUT WHEN COPS HERE RESPOND TO EMERGENCY CALLS IT OFTEN LOOKS

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

THE ATTACK AGAINST A FEW SWINGS IN, TASER HIM.

TACKLE HIM.

NO ONE DIES.

WHY THE DIFFERENT APPROACH?

TO LEARN MORE I VISITED THE CITY DUBBED ONE OF THE MOST MURDEROUS

PLACES IN THE COUNTRY.

BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND EMBEDDED WITH BIRMINGHAM'S FINEST.

>> JIM, NICE TO MEET YOU.

>> NICE TO MEET YOU.

>> JUMPED INTO THE PATROL CAR TO PICK UP THE PARTNERS.

>> BAD BOYS, BAD BOYS.

>> AND STOP AND GET CRIMINALS ON THE WAY TO WHERE WE ARE GOING.

OR IF WE SEE CRIME, DO WE DRIVE PAST.

>> MAY STOP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

>> A SMALL CRIME, LIKE WE SEE SOME ONE SHOPLIFTING OR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

DROP PAST THAT.

IF WE SEE A RAPE.

WE WILL STOP FOR A RAPE I ASSUME.

YEAH, ALL RIGHT.

>> IN AMERICA, THERE IS GUNS EVERYWHERE.

YOU HAVE A GUN?

>> NO, NO GUN.

NO TASER.

JUST GO INTO, THE EQUIVALENT OF PEPPER SPRAY.

>> PEPPER SPRAY AND STICK.

WHAT'S THE BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE COME UP AGAINST WITH PEPPER

SPRAY AND STICK?

>> SWORDS, MACHETE, KNIVES.

>> IF THERE IS A GUN YOU, GO NOT GOING TO [ BLEEP ] DO THAT?

>> YOU RING SOME ONE WITH A GUN.

THEY'VE COME UP.

>> THE MGUNS AREN'T PREVALENT.

NOT SO MANY.

HARDER TO GET AHOLD OF.

>> TURNED OUT BIRMINGHAM TECHNICALLY IS THE MURDER

CAPITAL OF THE UK.

BUT THE NUMBER OF HOMICIDE HERE LAST YEAR, 13.

COMPARE THAT TO BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA.

1/4 THE SIZE, WITH 104 HOMICIDES IN 2016.

AFTER A BRIEFING ABOUT MY OFFICIAL DUTIES, AND A QUICK

TOUR OF THE FACILITIES, THIS IS IF YOU JUST GET DRUNK AND GET

LOCKED UP FOR THE NIGHT RIGHT?

>> YEAH.

>> I'M BEEN TO ONE OF THOSE BEFORE.

>> WE MET OUR PARTNER HEADED OUT ON PATROL.

>> GOOD DAY, ELAINE.

>> HOW YOU DOING.

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

BAD BOYS, BAD BOYSWHEN YOU PULL SOME ONE FOR

SPEEDING WHAT'S THE FIRST THING.

DO THEY HAVE TO KEEP THEIR HAND.

>> SWITCH OFF THE ENGINE IDEALLY.

>> ASK THEM TO REACH WHERE THEIR HAND CAN'T BE SEEN?

>> YEP.

>> FIRST THING IN THE AMERICA, PLEASE KEEP YOUR HAND ON THE

WHEEL WHERE I CAN SEE THEM.

DON'T MOVE THEM.

YOU ARE LIKE IF YOU COULD JUST REACH DOWN BELOW THE STEERING

WHEEL, THERE.

REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

>> VERY EXCITING.

I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD GET THE LITTLE RUSH OF BLOOD.

SOON AS YOU ARE STANDING UP.

HOW FAST ARE WE GOING?

>> 60.

I THOUGHT FASTER.

>> WHAT ARE WE GOING TO NOW EXACTLY?

>> OVER AND DOWN THE ROAD.

THROWING DRUGS OUT OF HIS CAR.

>> THROWING DRUGS AROUND.

>> WHERE WOULD HE THROW THE DRUG, WHERE WOULD THEY BE?

>> ON THE ROAD.

>> CAN YOU CONFISCATE.

>> TRY TO GET THEM BACK.

>> TRY TO GET THEM.

>> LET'S HAVE A LOOK WHAT IS GOING ON?

PROBABLY NOT THE PEST BEST.

WHERE DID YOU DUMP THE DRUGS?

I CAN HELP YOU WITH THOSE IF YOU WANT TO FIND THOSE.

>> YOU EVER JUST FLIP SOMEONE OFF.

YOU KNOW THEY WENT DO ANYTHING.

FLIP OFF A PERSON IN ANOTHER CAR.

>> I WOULD BE DOING THAT ALL DAY.

>> GO TO THE HOUSE.

DOMESTIC ABUSE CALL.

IF SOME ONE HAS A KNIFE ARE YOU ALLOWED TO SHOOT THEM?

>> A SAMURI SWORD.

MIGHT DEPLOY FIREARMS OFFICERS TO THAT.

>> AND, THAT'S WHY WE HAVE TASER OFFICERS.

>> DO YOU HAVE A TASER?

>> I USED TO.

DON'T ANYMORE.

>> DO YOU MISS YOUR TASER?

>> ONLY EVER USED IT ONCE.

>> WHOA.

>> HELLO, MATES.

>> NO, NO, NO.

WAIT THERE A SECOND.

>> YOU TWO BOTH MATCH THE DESCRIPTION OF THE PEOPLE

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BURGLARY.

>> HONEST, LOVE, I HAVE NEVER DONE A BURGLARY.

>> THAT'S THE CALL WE GOT.

ALL RIGHT.

>> OH, WE WILL GET IT SORTED.

>> WE ROLLED UP, LOOKED LIKE IT WAS A FIGHT.

BUT, THOSE GUYS CALM DOWN QUICKLY.

>> ONE THING THAT I THINK, BRITISH POLICE ARE QUITE GOOD

AT, IS TALKING.

COMMUNICATING.

>> DE-ESCALATING.

RIGHT?

>> YEAH, POSSIBLY.

>> I HAVE TO SAY, AFTER RIDING WITH THE GUYS ALL DAY, COPS

HERE, SEEM LESS ON EDGE.

THAN THE COPS IN THE U.S.

AND IT IS NOT THAT THEY'RE ALL BETTER POLICE OFFICERS, IT'S

MORE LIKE, THEY'RE POLICING IN A DIFFERENT WORLD.

AND IN A WAY, THEY ARE.

SINCE 1980, 100 COPS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY IN

THE UK.

IN THE U.S. THAT NUMBER IS 2,300.

>> DO YOUR WIVES OR HUSBAND, DO THEY WORRY ABOUT YOU HAVING THIS

JOB?

>> NOT ANYMORE.

>> NO.

NO.

>> NO.

>> NO WORRIES.

>> 957 PEOPLE WERE SHOT AND KILLED IN, IN -- IN AMERICA IN

THE LAST YEAR BY POLICE OFFICERS.

>> MOST OF IT BECAUSE THE OTHER PERSON HAD A GUN.

>> YEAH.

>> HOW MANY POLICE SHOOTINGS ARE THERE, IN BIRMGHINGHAMONE A YEAR

EVERY COUPLE YEARS.

>> ONE EVERY TEN YEARS.

>> VERY, VERY RARELY FIRE A SHOT IN ANGER.

>> OF COURSE MAYBE THEY RARELY FIRE A SHOT BECAUSE THEY RARELY

HAVE SHOTS FIRED AT THEM.

THE UK HAS SOME OF THE TOUGHEST GUN LAWS IN THE WORLD.

AND WITH FEWER GUNS ON THE STREET, COPS DON'T HAVE TO

POLICE LIKE EVERY DAY CAN BE THEIR LAST.
