  • Officers of the law try to put a stop to breaches of the peace on college campuses.

    The show "Cops" premiered in 1989, and immediately became popular for its simple premise: follow police officers in the course of their everyday work. The unflinching show has since filmed the officers in cities across the country, and has inspired many copies. It can be said that "Campus PD" would not exist without its famous precedent, yet there is enough potential in the new show to make it worth watching on its own. The officers in towns such as Chico, California and Tallahassee, Florida grapple with some of the same problems. One very common issue is drinking and massive public parties that can quickly spin out of control. Fights break out, people's behavior may get violent, bizarre or stupid, and someone has to call for help. Here come the police. It is interesting to see the difference in the tone of certain situations. Depending on whether or not the students are willing to cooperate, they may receive anything from a ticket and a stern warning to a place in the back of a patrol car. Some people can't handle their liquor. Others cave in to peer pressure. Still others have anger problems or just don't seem to think about their actions. At this stage of their lives, some can be helped... and some may have to learn the hard way. I can't tell whether or not it's ironic that they chose "Police on my Back" by the Clash to be the theme song of this show. Well, it's a great song, so enjoy the chance to hear it. With the addition of more locales, so we can meet a greater range of people, this series may be around for another twenty years too.
