I really do beleave these afficers love what they do, and enforcing the law is their priority. They might not show the real them as they are doing the job they are sworn to do on the show because it would not be fun to see, they need to act goofy.

I just love how it takes a wide angle lens to get the whole girth of the cops. Thay could not work at any real PD or DO due to phycial fitness test. I would like to see the department put in a phycial to work there.

Why is all the footage shot during the day? Oh, yeah, that is because there is usually only one officer that works at night alone. He isn't part of the "click" so he is stuck out alone.

This show is pathetic. I use to be proud that I was from Trinity. Now I make sure to tell everyone that I live in Groveton.

How is Jones & Givens doing their jobs? I guess appearing on the Steve Harvey show is more important. The City Council & Mayor are just a much responsible for this mockery as the officers. They assured the tax payers that this was not going to make our town look bad. Well guess what. You have lied yet again!

I say that come election time again, the City Council members & Mayor all be voted out of office!!

Just like the "goat roundup". That was filmed in Council Member Smith's pasture, inside a fence. If you are gonna shoot footage at least make it true and not staged!!

I have spoke with the officer not involved in the show. I asked him why he was not in the show and what his thoughts was about the show and cast. The officer said he did not get involved in the show because of personal reasons. He said he wished all they guys the best of luck and he hope everything works out great for them because there a good group of officers.
WELL WELL

The Chief chasing a goat now that's much more important than serving some of the 500 outstanding warrants. So far all I've seen in all play and no serious work. How about showing how hard you'll work to enforce the law and break up some drug deals . Come down on crack houses . No to busy playing . SO SAD

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!

I couldn't believe it either!! What a way to go against what our schools have told our children!!

Who said we continue to watch it ? I do a lot of things I don't necessarily like to do.
