A Rialto Police Officer chases down a man who is using his wife's car as a battering ram in knocking a car off the road. Then, a Harris County Sheriff's Officer is dispatched to check a car which is believed to be containing a rifle aboard. Lastly, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Deputies check out a man and his parked car in a neighborhood which is not his.
Called the original reality show, Cops is a gritty and unfiltered look at the seamier parts of our society as seen through the eyes of the men and women who struggle to keep the peace.
Since 1989, camera crews have traveled across the nation and into other countries providing an intimate look at police officers and the nuts and bolts of their day-to-day work.
Cops uses a modern adaptation of cin... ma v... rit?, a French documentary style of film making from the early 1920s, where life is shot as it happens, without script, narration or interference. Here, the police officer is narrator, guiding you through the shift and what happens within it, using his or her own words.
