Introduction

COPS is an old school American TV show that documents the in's and out's of Policemen and Policewomen all around the United States. Created by reality TV titans John Langley and Malcolm Barbour, the show's biggest claim to fame are verisimilitude and realism; each episode is shot using handheld cameras and is filmed on location. Granted, most of the episodes from this long-running series skip over the massive amounts of paperwork police officers have to fill out on a daily basis - most episodes are edited in a way to create a narrative of sorts - so it's not entirely realistic. If nothing else, COPS provides an interesting bit of insight into American culture as a whole - its true face, not what's advertised via movies and commercials. With many seasons and episodes aired of various cops shows on television, a COPS themed dog name is sure to jump right out at you.

COPS Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The narratives featured on COPS may not always be 100% genuine, the bravery of the Law women and men that are featured on the show is. If you, a close friend or family member, or even a kind neighbor of yours is an agent of the Law, then you'll likely have a vested interest in COPS for one reason or another. If you've got personal ties to your local law enforcement agency, then you probably won't need much convincing to give your dog a COPS inspired name. If anything, you may need help deciding how to go about doing that in the first place, as COPS doesn't feature a consistent cast of characters like other TV shows do - even shows that are also in the reality TV genre. 

Our best advice is to start with the COPS crew - the only constant members of any given episode for the most part. You could name your dog after the show's creators - John Langley and Malcolm Barbour respectively. Next, you could name your dog after officers that have been featured in particularly notable episodes of the series; officers Brooks Riley and Jason Wilhelm were involved in the harrowing "2014 Wendy's Shooting" incident, both of whom served valiantly during the terrifying moment. Other names to consider are policemen and policewomen of the past who have influenced those employed in the field today.
