Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes will be the focus of a documentary that probes her ability and her role.
The 50 minute special focuses on Ann Barnes (pictured) and her position as the elected individual for Kent.
Since the 68-year-old was elected in 2012 she has had her fair share of negative press, particularly over costs.
She has, however, maintained that she is fulfilling her election promises in Kent â€“ and that people â€œneed to trust meâ€.
Mrs Barnes added: â€œSince the election all I have done is try and explain what the role of a PCC is. People know parts of the job but not everything.
â€œThis gave me a chance to highlight the work I do.â€
However, before she agreed to a documentary team following her every day for four months, she admitted thinking long and hard about the implications.
With no editorial power, she trusted the documentary makers would show her as â€œopen and transparentâ€.
Mrs Barnes said: â€œIn fact they made me look better than I am â€“ my children would hardly recognise me.â€
After watching the show Ms Barnes said there are some â€œgenerally laugh out loud momentsâ€.
Although expressing a view that the Special Edition Films team â€“ which made the documentary â€“ were â€œmischievousâ€ in only showing â€œdissatisfied customersâ€, Ms Barnes did feel the programme showed her engaging with the community.
A statement from Channel 4 added: â€œThe documentary joins Ann as she faces her biggest challenges to date â€“ massive cuts to police funding, the retirement of her chief constable, the backlash from her severe criticism of Kent Police crime recording practises and an increasingly hostile electorate who question her salary, her ability and ultimately the role of PCC itself.
â€œThrough her and the access she gives, weâ€™ll see how politics works.â€
Mrs Barnes contested that the programme was about her personality, â€œIt was about boosting the local community and I am glad I did it,â€ she said.
â€œIt is a shame that a lot of the footage was left on the cutting room floor.
â€œI did the show with the best of intentions and I think it shows that I make every effort to fulfil promises.â€
The Police Commissioner â€“ Cutting Edge will be shown on Channel 4 at the end of May.
