Detective Eddie Brown assists other officers to catch two drug dealers. Officer Deborah Germany and Officer James Rohm mediate between a group of men waiting twelve hours to move into an apartment and the former tenant who is slowly moving out. Officer Edward Eckle and Officer Thomas DeTemple are flagged down while on street patrol by victims of a hit and run accident caused by a drunk driver.
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.
