Police, Crime and Detective TV Series on DVD and Video

Most people develop their original interest in becoming a private detective or police officer from watching their favorite police and crime series on TV. Many of us grew up watching Thomas Magnum cruise around the beautiful island of Hawaii in a red Ferrari, watched James Garner outsmart the criminals on the Rockford files, and snickered every time Columbo delivered his famous line, “Just one more thing”.

Although Hollywood’s depiction of the work performed by law enforcement officers and private investigators often over-glamorizes the professions, the wide variety of investigation shows, police TV dramas, and crime scene investigation series help position private investigations as an exciting and interesting career. The characters in these shows have always been influential in creating interest in the profession.

Most of the TV shows are based on fictional characters, but many of the plot lines are pulled straight from newspaper headlines of the times. And of course, the names are changed to protect the innocent.
