Shows like NCIS: The Police Procedural Parade

The list of police procedurals out there can seem endless, but if you're feeling overwhelmed just think of all the police officers who not only have to solve these crimes, but fill out the paperwork as well.

Best Crime TV

A (police) round-up of some of the highest rated, award-winning, most popular, and most influential crime shows--crime doesn't pay except for streaming services.

Most Popular Current Network Dramas

Unlike HBO, Showtime, or Netflix, the traditional broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) need to attract advertisers, which means their dramas cannot be too edgy, dark, or explicit, which makes for lighter binging than Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones.

Shows like Southland: Realistic Cop Shows

Forget eccentric genius detectives and coroners who speak to the dead, the stars of these shows are cops doing the hard work of catching criminals.

Shows Like The Shield: Good Cop, Crooked Cop

Some of these cops live to protect and serve--themselves. Thank God for the upright few who risk their jobs to bring about justice.

Shows Like Line of Duty: Get Inside Police Politics

If you're less interested in seeing baddies tagged and bagged, and more interested in seeing how police departments run, then this list of cop dramas may be for you. Hey, it's just like any other office, but with more mustaches, guns, and pending internal investigations.

Shows Like Blue Bloods: Modern (ish) NYPD Dramas

Modern (ish) dramas following the New York Police Department as they bust crime across the five boroughs: Manhattan, The Empire State Building, New Jersey, Brooklyn, and Rhode Island? Also includes the occasional FBI agent stationed in the Big Apple.

Shows like Southland: Big City Cops on the Street

Not your standard network police procedurals--these shows depict law enforcement officials on the front lines, working the mean streets of Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto and other big cities.
