Would you have any clips from the older episodes.

I remember there was one episode from 1994 Las Vegas when the officers have siezed a guy's brand new Mustang GT convertible cause he used his vehicle in a drug sting.

I only have episodes 25-31 of season 20 (I downloaded them on Bittorrent).

I don't see the logic in that veeble fetzer, they're the main cars in the show. What can happen is that they can be grouped together based on year range so that there won't be so many Crown Vic pages on the show. But I really don't see your logic given how prominent they are in the show.

I added six captures I have from season one and identified them as such by adding the abbreviation "S1" since I don't know the episode numbers.

IIRC, the "proper" way would be use an "xx" for the episode number (01.xx)

@ Owlman: are you sure that your pictures are in the correct series? For what I know this series is filmed in the US, but yor picture seems from a movie filmed in Russia...

Cops is a documentary series, so maybe there's an episode about police work in Russia. Or maybe there's a Russian franchise version.

COPS has done a few episodes overseas. Those captures were from two episodes filmed in Russia. There was also an episode I once saw filmed in Hong Kong, and I think they did at least one in the UK.
Sorry for the confusion :)

I LOVE THIS SHOW.2 reasons:1,I get to see cities Ill probably never get around to visiting, and 2,the early episodes have TONS of old and often rare cars.
There was an old episode from San Diego where a lady was getting arrested for drugs.She was driving a Datsun B210 and at the beginning you can see my favorite-a Gremlin-passing by in the background.There was also one from Colorado where a guy was filling a Grem up at a gas pump in the background.
I used to see an episode all the time from southern California where a river was flooded, and an idiot attempted to cross in a an ultra-rare late-70s Buick Opel.

lol, I was JUST watching that episode. But I didn't notice a Gremlin. Was it prominently visible?

No, it was driving by in the background. Not prominent enough. Those old episodes, especially from Western regions, feature some extremely rare or unusual cars though.
Id love to see if anyone can locate and post the episode from either philadelphia or Pittsburgh where the cops were chasing a stolen Dodge Colt!
The episode I think they show the most is from Cleveland, where they chase a stolen Nissan Sentra,which gets completely totalled.

Does anyone know of an authoritative episode guide for COPS? Many webpages I find have conflicting or missing information. I'd like to upload more episodes (there are 10+ random episodes a week shown here on local tv) but without a proper list I don't know what to do.

I love this show.Its cool seeing rare and unusual cars parked in the background of the old episodes, especially in areas those cars are now very rare (like seeing all the 70s cars in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh). I imagine it will be difficult to add entries because it might be hard to get episode numbers, and there will be a disproportionate number of similar police cars.
I'd love to see it added to.what kind of criteria should be used on what cars to include and what kind of compromises in terms of similar police cruisers?

Ford_Guy US

2013-01-05 05:46

Quote

Similar cars, especially the police cruisers, would be relegated to one single page. There's no need for multiple Chevrolet Caprice or Ford Crown Victoria pages. To be honest, I once tried adding episodes for this show but I decided against it. Too much work. There's simply too much to add.

If I can find out how to capture screen shots I'd get pictures of cars that play a notable role in the segment (cars used in drug busts, prostitution stings, etc)but I wouldnt know the episode number.

Driver flees from the police after a traffic stop. He's in a Nissan Altima,which plays a significant role in the segment.

Looking at the pic of the Camaro, as a first measure, crop it down so that it is just the raw image (none of the white background) also select hide annotations on the YouTube video (it's the first option on the left beneath the video viewing pane) and select large player or full screen viewing (so that the images are not too small). If you use the large player be sure to resize down to say 640px wide.

Some of these 1 [*] cars should probably be deleted, like this one /vehicle_174710-Plymouth-Voyager-1996.html because of the kind of show this is.

Davez621, I know you're new here, but out of the 3 vehicles you've submitted, 2 of them are just random parked cars and in a reality-type program like this we want to try and avoid that and stick to vehicles that are either used or connected to what's happening. Because if someone tried to list parked/passing by cars in all the episodes of COPS, there would be thousands of them. But the Harley looks like it might be OK to list ;)

It seems we have a very large gap here - there are no cars at all from seasons 4 thru 19. Is anyone going to add these?

Ford_Guy US

2013-11-02 06:44

Quote

I doubt it. It's a difficult show to do, both for the reasons that G-MANN stated and there would be no fair way to organize all of the police cars. I'd say the best thing to do is to just add the "action" vehicles or the rarer police vehicles.

I still think it's very sad that this show has been going since 1989, yet there is not *one* 1991-1996 Chevy Caprice on this page at all. :cry: That car must have appeared in hundreds of episodes.

Stockton municipality wasn't in bankruptcy last year? Perhaps this is all what they can afford... :lol:

Also, what is the problem with giving old vehicles to police? I don't known crime rate there, but sometimes a new car can be worse than the previous one (e.g. the Alfa 159 was criticized, in comparison with the Fiat Marea...)

Still ruled by the Polizei Düsseldorf: Link to "www.lokalkompass.de"

Yes, they have official police-registrations. But of course they weren't used for the patrol service. Outside the patrol service several police-units in Germany still used vehicles from the 80ies and 90ies, for example /vehicle_271022-Kassbohrer-Setra-S-215-HD-1983.html

By the way for future reference, all of the 1-star cars I've added are not background vehicles in the usual sense, but they are all related to the story in some way. I don't give them 2 stars because they're either not shown in a pursuit or being pulled over, or they're not shown with anyone in them (just parked). In the event that a clean up of this page is done in future, please don't delete the 1-star cars I've added (I can't speak for the 1-stars added by others, though).

You might think that, but there's more to it than that. They were specifically converted and sold for the US market. Not many were sold in the USA compared to Europe, and they're therefore rare.

The most delightful cars to spot in a movie are those that seem common at first, but turn out to be the blatant opposite.

I would rather say it's most delightful something like this excavator which only 2 sells adverts on www is everything you find about it or the company "Nemag" so even if you know what the make and model is you find as good as nothing about it... now this kind of vehicles take real patience and some luck to solve

These were probably seen a lot in this show, and it was just two pics, I supposed it was ok for once.
This show is on the limit between what we accept and what we don't, behind rather well known. If we do not accept new entries it should rather be deleted than kept as it is.
