Episode Chronology:
Search Me is the 1510th episode of The Bill.

There has been an outbreak of street robberies and stop and search (or stop and talk) is being resumed. Ch. Supt. Mannion asks Ch. Supt. Brownlow to stand in for him for a TV interview. The interview shows footage of the police carrying out two stop and search operations. Brownlow tries to shift some of the blame on his troops, which is greeted with some displeasure. To show the troops that he leads from the front, Brownlow and Ch. Insp. Conway decide to lead from the front and head onto the streets in the C.I.D. car. They respond to a call and collar one of the street robbers. The other robber hops onto a bus and Brownlow gets uniform to stop the bus, leading to some ribald comments about Brownlow arresting them by the busload. Mannion announces he's setting up a special unit to combat street robberies in the area.

Ofo Uhiara, who plays Lyle Frobisher, would later join the cast as P.C. Lance Powell.
