Street cops inhabit a secretive world that few outsiders get to see. Beyond the high-speed pursuits, the shoot-outs and bloody crime scenes, there exists another world. A world of bored and mischievous cops who spend an entire shift dreaming up pranks to play on each other or unsuspecting citizens; lazy and incompetent cops whose efforts to avoid work are legendary; and accident-prone cops whom other police avoid because of their talent for causing chaos and pandemonium wherever they go. And then there are the hapless crooks, a collection of losers, misfits and walking disasters whose pathetic attempts at crime makes you almost feel sorry for them. Just one shift with these crazy cops and the incredibly dumb crooks they arrest and you will go on a hilarious journey that never seems to end!
