Officer Bob Lane questions a man that shot an intruder after he threatened to beat his wife with a hammer. Officers Mike Cook and Scott Caron respond to a disturbance where they find a couple sleeping on a mattress in the basement, and learn the man has outstanding warrants for his arrest. Officer Gale Halll is flagged down by a bar owner that's having problems with one of his patrons. As the patron is being questioned, the man's brother in law walks up and assaults him in front of the officer.
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.
