I was thinking due to similar names should maybe we seperate the pages completely for the regular series cops and the animated series with the same name (or use the animated series other name) so that way people won't end up on the wrong one?

I'm assuming British and other non-USA local knock-offs of this show could also be referenced here, as basically they're all the same franchise anyway?

I'd assume that they'd be fine. Might be best to split the tropes into Tropes Common to X headers.

Don't do what, exactly?

Deleted cut:

  • This is conspicuously absent from the numerous British clones of this show. The police are always, always, shown as being calm in the face of insane provocation, who will reason with unreasonable offenders, who will try to calm a situation, will never respond however bad the abuse gets, use physical restraint only as a last option, and who will help a criminal into the paddy wagon with the utmost concern for his welfare. This good-as-gold-in-front-of-the-cameras stuff begs the question - would they be so keen to do everything by the book if the cameras weren't there? Yeah, right.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
