Crime 360 is a mix of the mundane and the horrific. The crimes, often murder, aren't usually the sort that would land on the front page of the newspapers, but they're certainly life-changing for the witnesses, the suspects, and the victims' friends and family. The detectives bring a clinical professionalism to their work, which helps them maintain a sense of distance from these everyday tragedies.

That said, the show also understates the significance of the material. Treating a murder investigation like it's just another day at the office (and for a homicide detective, that's exactly what it is) doesn't make for the most compelling television. Still, focusing on real people and real crimes brings out plenty of real drama, despite the cops' just-the-facts attitude. This show isn't as exciting as a scripted police show, but it's real, and that trumps fiction every time.
