I also watch these shows when I can. My favorite is Animal Precient (sp?). The one based in New York City. Second is San Francasco: Animal Cops. AZ has a good one. Detroit has a good one. Did you know that Detroit, dog-fighting is so HUGE up there, that thay actually have their own Dog-fighting Task Force on their police department. It is sad really.

Maimi..I watch it sometimes, but pissed me off when one of their ACO's is running after a DRAL and says "you know, sometimes you just wish they would get hit by a car". Now the show just erks me.

Is that the one where the ACO's cry on camera when they face a bad situation? I don't remember what locality it was but on one episode an ACO was at a neglect situation and she was balling on the tv. I mean, I know that those situations are heart wrenching but Geeze - have some composure.....

No, it was the one where a female ACO was chasing a dog that was running at large and kept on going into traffic. The B**ch ACO turned to the camera and said "You know sometimes you just wish they would get hit by a car".

I do agree with you on composure. While yes it is hard...you have a job too do. You have to remain focused for the animals sake. Get the job done and cry later.

As a side note, the Miami show is produced by a different company then the ones that do all the other animal cops locations. A few years ago at a local Animal Control Conference the company that produces the other animal cops show locations were there and said that's why the Miami one is so different with guys in sleeveless t-shirts running after cobras and all that other non-cruelty stuff, it's produced by a different company. From what I got, they weren't too happy being associated with the fact most people thought they produced the Miami one too.

I haven't seen all the episides, but from what I have seen Detroit is the closest thing to what we used to do before our department had dedicated investigators. They showed them doing some rescues and even had a dog on the freeway. The main thing that I've noticed is just how bad some ACO's officer safety really is, I won't name any specific departments shown, but it's amazing more officers aren't getting assaulted out there. I think the only thing that saved some of these officers was a camera guy and production assistant being there with them. I hate to think how they are when nobody else is around, if anything, you need to be more aware when you have untrained people with you since you're basically protecting them too.

Well said. You can not let your guard down and by becoming emotional you are. Like I said above...Get the job done, cry later.

I agree leave you emotions in the car deal with the situation then after you have everything under control and dealt with. I take a few minutes when I get home at the end of a bad shift sit in the car and just unwind a little. I always think if you had an emergency at your house would you want the police and emt's crying when they got there?
