    Anyone else watching this show?

    Kind of like Cops, but in addition to the cameraman the Cops themselves have cameras attached to them.

    And so far they've shown mostly exciting stuff, not like Cops where you end up with 20 minutes of family arguments. Raids on houses, chases, a man took a Cops taser from her, etc.

    In a way, the POV camera is cool, but you end up with too many shots of crew members, which takes me out of the moment. If they're going to do a show like this, I think it needs to be exclusively POV footage.

    I watched a couple of episodes, but it wasn't different enough (or interesting enough) to warrant keeping the SP. I've got no ties to "The 'Natti" (do people there REALLY call it that???), so even the location isn't enough to grab me.

    Is this real or more fake scripted stuff?

    IMHO, at least portions are fake/scripted/re-enacted. There are just too many interactions where the cops let a suspect be out of control and even combative for a LONG time before they escalate their level of force. There is one department in white that is especially bad about it, and while I can see "police" on their cars and uniforms, I have looked and cannot find one marking identifying a jurisdiction. My guess is that it's a mix of real footage and OpRepo style "re-enactments".

    FWIW, I just killed the seasons pass.

    Nothing on the network is completely real. That's their whole thing.

    Except the shows where they show viewer submitted videos. Like the smoking gun and most shocking.

    I haven't watched the show but took a quick look at the web site. White shirts are Cincinnati. Patch is on left shoulder, nothing on right shoulder. Cars are plain white with only Cincinnati Police on front fender & door. One of the officers was previously featured on "Police Women of Cincinnati".
