Great for Teens

I watch this show constantly. This show is good, but too violent for kids 12 and under. The show is mainly cops arresting people for prostitution, possession of illegal drugs and/or narcotics, and domestic disturbances. I would recommend watching it with your kid the first time they see it.

well...

kids are gonna have to learn just how sucky this world is sooner or later. everything isn't bright rainbows and cute kitty cats. they should be old enough to depict right from wrong first, though...

Great with exceptions

I love this show because I love justice. Now if I see someone smoking I can easily tell what they are smoking, nifty skill :) I think it will teach tweens and teens what not to do or might just do the opposite. I would tell your children that this is what you shouldn't do (i.e. smoke, domestic violence, etc.)

Cops

cops they catch bad people and put them in jail and kids should watch because it teaches them that if you break the law you will be caught.

Cops

Somewhat boring show with violence and sex. SEX sometimes suspects are shown naked (blurred out), prostitutes are shown... VIOLENCE suspects will sometimes fight back,tasers are shown being used... LANGUAGE bitch, damn, goddamn. DRUGS AND ALCOHOL sometimes crack cocaine is shown, suspects are shown under the influence... LOTS of product placement... If cops were a movie it would be rated PG-13 for sexual situations, violence, and strong drug content, iffy for 9+

This is a good show but kids under 12 should not be seeing narcotics, brief nudity(even though it is edited), and some violence. Good show though. Keeps you entertained.

My POV

I don't get Common Sense Media's POV on COPS, but it is really funny and educational as it shows you how to be a cop.

Stupid

The cops in the show are dumb and are unfair to the victims, that haven't done anything in some episodes. Also how it is stupid how some of the episodes they need a swat team to take down a guy with a knife -.- the most stupidest thing I have ever watched

Not that good, too violent.

Suspects caught on tape aren't for tweens or younger teens. Barely an episode doesn't contain violence. Fights,hitting,stabbings,gunshots,or blood. I don't really like this show. In other words, don't waste your time.

Meh

Kind of boring. The content is somewhat unpredictable. There is sometimes violence, swearing, and sexual content. off for 9 and under, iffy for 10-12, on for 13 and up.

I love to see what happens in a cop's life. Lots of violence, sometimes people are naked, crimes relating to sex, drugs, and alcohol, and their are no good role models (except the cops, of course). Parents let your kids (12-15) watch with caution.
