    Greatest Police Movie - Nominate Your Favorites

    Here's a thread for you to nominate your favorite police movie of all time.

    All nominations should be of feature-length cinema (released to theaters), and focused upon a police unit, officer, or incident.

    I'll kick it off with "The French Connection","The New Centurions", and "Serpico"

    Have at it!

    "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."
    - Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

    Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,
    That from the nunnery
    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.
    - Lovelace

    The opinions expressed by this poster are wholly his own, and should never be construed to even remotely be in representation of his employer, its agencies or assigns. In fact, they probably fail to be in alignment with the opinions of any rational human being.

    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I second that. Just watched it again tonight.

    I'll also nominate "Training Day" for showing the triumph of character, ethics, and morals over corruption and "easy money".

    Thumbs up SERPICO

    Hmmm, so far we are thinking alike. My votes are The New Centurion and the best one of all, Serpico.
    As today's police officers you are not unlike your counterparts of years past. You are an elite group of select members, a brotherhood of highly trained professionals, who are called upon to protect your community in a time of need. Guardians for safety. Being a police officer is not for the faint of heart. You must be honest, trustworthy and fearless in the face of evil. You are being watched everyday. Represent yourself, your department and the shield, for it should always be the embodiment of all that is good and justly. You are the thin blue line. Be proud, be tough and be safe.

    How about movies that most accurately reflect real police work, versus Hollywood schlock? Ones that had real cops as advisors.

    The original Pink Panther movies with Peter Sellers.. They cracked me up. I also like Super Troopers
