I did not find it funny nor interesting in the least .Just a bunch of so called Police Officers acting like kids. If I didn't live in Trinity I wouldn't even watch it . Nothing informative about the show. We already knew they love to eat . If that is them at their best I don't want to see anymore I've seen enough .

Surely this isn't a "real" police department in Texas! I just watched a clip from the show and was not amused! The short clip I did see showed "Officer Morales" riding with "Officer Sikes", I guess he's an FTO. Officer Sikes made a "traffic stop" on a cyclist and over the PA told the cyclist to ride on the other side of the road, so he could see the approaching traffic. Completely opposite of what Texas Transportation Code reads. Bicycles are vehicles in Texas and must obey the same traffic laws as motorized vehicles if and when on a public roadway! I couldn't watch anymore of this embarrassing "reality" show!

This is truly a sad day for the real police that live in Trinity County, i feel sorry for them. It seems to me that Jones and Drake have a lot to answer for. It also seems to me that the city officials now have something to answer for also, since they assured all of us that this would never be allowed to happen.

I loved it, they do take their job serious, I realized they played it up a little , just makes it more fun. If we can't see the fun side of our cops something's wrong. I'd rather see them being human than running around being little Hitlers. If I were an outsider the show would attract me to this town, there is more to life than taking everything to serious. Life is short, come out of your shell and live a little, could be over before you know it. Great job guys!

Obviously some of you are just disgruntled with your lives and have to be negative about everything. I am sad for you.

I enjoyed it! I was very concerned at first, but you can tell its a comedy. They are a funny and entertaining group of guys. Officer Givens not bringing in anyone just cracked me up!

I was ready to cry foul after all the comments I heard last night (i'd missed the actual viewing) but after watching it on CMT online I have to say, it showed the funny side to these guys that some of us see all the time! If you are complaining, you probably already had an issue with Trinity PD in the first place! I was impressed that the town itself looked good and that folks, even when getting arrested, were having fun with the whole concept! Way to go guys!!

The Chief's wife needs to do something with her poodle do . If you noticed the ladies at Tropics had up to date hair styles . I also think they could keep the jail cells clean if they made the inmates clean the cell before they were released . If they mess it up they clean it up. Officer unsexy could spend his time doing his job . Noticed he didn't make a single arrest .By the way I thought a comedy was to make you laugh it wasn't funny at all .

I don't live in Trinity, but our deer lease is in Trinity. I started watching the new reality show, and I find it to be very comical. It shows the fun side of thier jobs as police officers, which I'm sure can be very scary and stressful at times. Seems to me these officers are down to earth guys, that enjoy thier jobs.

I think the hazing of Officer Morales is illegal. Also, when Officer "Lil Man" thru the water on Morales, the gloves should have been off and Morales should have beat that ass!!! They shouldnt treat each other that way, rookie or not!

We have called the police on several occasions over the years and they have always showed up quick, did they're job professionally with still the small town charm. I played all the way through school here in this town, played at every job I've ever had while still doing my job and I still play all the time and all over town and take my job very seriously. It's just part of living. There's nothing better than living in a small town. I've lived in big cities and even in Germany, butTrinity has always been my home. Small town antics is just part of living in a small town. Surround yourself by good people and you will love this little town. Love the show, good job guys.
