> Description 
COPS is one of the longest-running television programs in the United States and one of the earliest reality TV genre programs. It is broadcast by the Fox Network and documents the day-to-day activities of American police officers and sheriff's deputies ("cops") while on-duty. Originally created by John Langley and Malcolm Barbour, it premiered on March 11, 1989 and has aired over 600 episodes. It won the American Television Award in 1993, and has earned four Emmy nominations.

The show is made up of footage shot by film units who accompany selected police officers while they execute their duties. As the show's opening spiel mentions, "COPS is filmed on location with the men and women of law enforcement...all suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court-of-law." The show has followed officers in 140 different cities in the United States and also has filmed in Hong Kong, London, and the former Soviet Union. Recently, several themed DVD's have been released, some of which include profanity and sexually explicit footage cut from the network version. They are entitled COPS: Shots Fired, COPS: Bad Girls, and COPS: Caught in the Act.

The show is well known for its theme song, "Bad Boys", sung by reggae group Inner Circle.
