> Description 
Reno 911! is a comedy television show on Comedy Central. It debuted in 2003.

Reno 911! is in some respects a parody of the long-running television show COPS. The show features the members of a fictional Reno, Nevada police squad, which are videotaped by a camera operator during the course of their jobs, and sometimes address the camera directly as though being interviewed. The joke, of course, is that they are terrible cops who cheat, lie, drink, steal, plant evidence, brutalize citizens and display general incompetence at their jobs. The force also has problems with racism, unrequited attractions, promiscuity, passive-aggressive feuds, drug use, and other dysfunctional troubles that supply a lot of the show's humor. It was nominated as Outstanding Comedy Series for the 2004 GLAAD Media Awards.

The show is not written with specific lines for the actors to say; rather, they are given general guidelines and improvise the details. This enhances the illusion of "reality."

On March 21 of 2004, Comedy Central ran a special of the show, Reno 911: Off Duty.

The series is currently in its third season.

Many of the cast members are recognizable from The State, a sketch comedy series which aired on MTV.
