Cincinnati Police on "Cops" Saturday and May 19

Cincinnati Police will be caught on tape on Fox's "Cops" twice during May sweeps.

In a "Cops Police Pullovers Special Edition" about unusual traffic stops Saturday (8:30 p.m., Ch. 19), Cincinnati officers encounter "a passenger in a suspicious vehicle reaching for a gun," according to Fox publicity. The segment was taped 12 to 18 months ago, says Josh Carnavale, Fox publicist for "Cops." Saturday's show also includes stories from Las Vegas and Fontana, Calif., he says.

An entire show will be devoted to Greater Cincinnati on May 19 in a "Cops: Ohio Drug Arrests Special Edition" (8:30 p.m., Ch. 19). It features stories from Cincinnati and Norwood police, and Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies, he says. (I'm told Fox called the show "Ohio Drug Arrests" because folks in LA didn't know that Norwood and Hamilton County are in Greater Cincinnati. Duh!)

A Norwood police spokesman says Fox producers filmed here last year. Fox also rode with Covington police last May. In 2004, "Cops" crews filmed Cincinnati, Covington, Norwood and Hamilton County officers.

Off-topic, but TV related: 9 is once again rolling out those Weather Rate says we're most accurate ads.

John - I'd still like to know what the definition of "accurate" is when they run these ads. Its it closest to the forecast temperature? Closest to rainfall totals? Is it timing? All of this? None of this?

Could you do some investigating, especially since Weather Rate only makes money when it can sell its "independent" research to a TV station?

It’s not really a good thing when your city is featured on cops. They don't film or air cities unless "stuff happens" Better for our cops to be bored.

Really? Crime happens everywhere?

Thanks Capt. Obvious

Cincinnati is ranked 18th in the nation in crime per capita, ahead of Washington DC, it seems a bit high.

I know every city has crime, but Cincinnati seems to have more of it.

I'm sorry they are ranked 8th in crime "per capita"

Oh by the way someone got a speeding ticket in Madeira yesterday, so your are right, every city DOES have crime. Amazing

So that should make some really good episodes of "Cops".

Exactly my point. I don't think it is necessarily a good thing when my city "makes for a good episode of cops"
