I like to watch shows from Houston or Dallas and try to spot where they are in the city.

I work for a PD outside of Boston and several episodes were taped here in the 90's. One of the episodes included an arestee being shot on camera. Still the only taped shoting on Cops. Before my time on the Dept. but the guys all enjoyed them tagging along and would like to have them return.

Tom,

They've been doing a few shoots in Lowell this year (I have to assume they've been filmed in the last year or so)

Not quite as impressive as when they were in Boston, I still see those in the repeats, but I was surprised to see the location tag as "Lowell" this year

My nephew's wife's brother (kind of far removed, I know) is a camera man for COPS.

According to my nephew's wife, her brother really loves his job! Sounds to me like it would be a blast!

He works mostly in Florida. I've noticed that over the past 4 or 5 seasons a high percentage of the segments are from various parts of Florida.

I don't watch Cops. Haven't in years. However, I was flipping the other week and saw the one from "Lowell". I, of course, had to stop and gawk because it was my neck of the woods.

I loved episode this week when they busted a guy for stealing copper wire. The perp was wearing a C.O.P.S. t-shirt.

I've been watching a lot more COPS since the strike. I wonder if their ratings have gone up.

Loved the first episode on Saturday where the cop was chasing a guy off-road, got stuck, and started a brush fire that destroyed his cruiser.

Yeah, I think this was a "Stupid Behavior" special. Which makes the cop losing his car to a fire even funnier, since the criminal got away.

Don't you know he wished the C.O.P.S. crew wasn't riding with him that day.

It reminded me of the episode where a cop decided to follow an off-road motorcyle down some railroad tracks. He gat jammed up in the tracks, had to radio to have trains diverted, then have a tow truck come snatch him off the tracks. I bet the front end of that cruiser was bent to hell and back.

He got away from that officer, but they said that he was picked up a bit later trying to swim a river fully clothed.. (I swear.. you just can't make this stuff up..no one would believe it)

Since there is nothing on, I should record this as well.

We also started watching Speeders, that's a fairly entertaining show too.

You might also check out "Street Patrol". It is almost identical to "COPS". It is a new series done by the same people. Don't know why they felt a new series was necessary, but there it is anyway.

Also from at least one of the guys who started Cops is a series called Jail. Also amusing.

Rarely watch, but it is entertaining if I stumble across it. I annoy my wife by doing my announcer voice: "Suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law" or however that goes.

You have to feel sorry for the camera & sound guys running with all that gear when Johnny Law has to break into a sprint after some dude.

How they get these idiot perps to consent to showing their faces in the program is beyond me. Don't they have to sign some sort of release for the producers? It seems they only have to blur/obscure a small number of people.

Aren't the newer eps in HD, too?

Well, they are idiots.

Actually, I wonder if they do really need consents for the perps. It's a news type thing. I don't see why they would need the consents. If you watch some of the old episodes, you see more blurring than recent episodes. I'd bet they did it in early days to cover their butts but probably have enough precedent now till they don't worry about it.

The innocent bystanders are a different matter.

I had thought they were HD, but over on TVSquad they were very adamant that they were 480p-wide and then upconverted at the network.

All i know is that's some nice 480p if that's the case.

I just watched an episode of Street Patrol. It's also by produced by Langley, who was one of the guys who started Cops and now also does Jail. Funny thing is, based on clothing, hair, and vehicle styles (along with the lack of Tasers), it appears Street Patrol is using old footage. It's probably stuff that was on the cutting room floor for Cops (of which I'm sure there is a lot).

Don't they offer the perps (more) money to get the consent?

the show staff doing the interview strongly suggested that these guys are nuts for wanting to be on tv after some of the stuff they do but they do sign...every one of them unless they are blurred. I seriously doubt any money ever changes hands. and nothing on that show indicated it did.

I noticed it now being called "Cops 2.0", and is sort of a mix between Cops and Pop Up Video. Old episodes, but re-issued with trivia popups.

Yeah, that's on G4. They did that with Star Trek, too.
