Cops

Show Summary

Now known as the original reality series, COPS hit the airwaves in early 1989, putting camera crews in police cars all across the United States. Adopting the Cinema Verité style of documentary filming, COPS uses no narration, depending completely on the police officers and the footage shot as it happens to tell the story. Each COPS camera crew consists of a camera operator and a sound mixer. The officer is mic'd with a wireless mic directly to the camera and the sound mixer captures the suspects, witnesses and other officers with a boom mic. Multiple crews can be stationed in one area as well as crews working different cities across the country at the same time. Still one of the most popular television shows on the air, COPS moved from the FOX network to Spike TV in the fall of 2013, keeping it's original 8pm time slot on Saturday nights.

  • 5th dangerous city

    9.0
    Please come visit Lawrwnce,Ma. It's a small city 6.9miles but the drug haven of New England. The men and women there are the best cops this side of the Mississippi maybe even the country.

  • Respecting People

    5.0
    The opening of the show needs to be changed to say the following "all people are presumed innocent 'UNLESS' proven guilty"!!!! Presently it says "UNTIL" they are proven guilty. The word 'UNTIL' carries with it the presumption of impending guilt. That presumption of impending guilt is prejudicial, unlawful and completely avoidable. The word 'unless' leaves a persons innocence or guilt hanging in the middle where it should be.
