With 200 or so apprehensions per year, how do we choose our favourites? It’s a tough call. Sometimes, we hold back vivid, exciting footage because a client asks us to. At other times, clear footage and interesting details make the choice easy. Live arrests and K9 are always popular. Whether due to more clicks on YouTube or our own instincts, here are our top picks for 2018.
