Excellent choice. I was thinking about including this myself. The only reason I didn't is because the story is primarily told from the point of view of the gangsters rather than from the point of view of the police.

Do you think there are enough TV series from other countries in North and South America do make a separate poll about those, or should I add the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as an extra option in the poll America's Finest Police Force?

Well, since you wrote “In the U.S.A.” And Canada is not in the U.S.A. , but it is a British Commonwealth nation, I afraid you can’t include it into your “America's Finest Police Force?” without serious editing of your description.
The Bridge (Texas and mexico) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2406376/?...
- Narcos
- Capadocia (takes place in a Mexican prison) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1068899/?... Mexico City

leavey, the point was that there are other countries around that are not apart of the U,S.A.and Europe that have television networks and produce crime shows and police shows.
I do believe their is a BBC show that is called “Death in Paradice” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1888075/?... that takes place on Caribbean island of Saints Marie.
Australia has many police shows.
Aka, go global!!!

Ok, I can make a third poll, but how should I call it? "Finest Police Force outside the USA and Europe" or do you have another suggestion for a good title?

How about “The Finest Police Force In The World Outside Europe And The U.S.A.” Or better yet, make a “Finest Police Force In The World” by combining the top choices of both polls and leave the no vote or low vote getters out and place the new entries in their spots instead.
