Shows like Jack Taylor: Irish Crime Shows

You can spot the Irish police, or the Garda to the locals, by their high visibility jackets that stand out in a crowd, which comes in handy for the criminals trying to avoid the long hand of the law. Oh, and to be clear, we focus on Island of Ireland, so some Northern Ireland shows to boot.
