For the sake of thrills, drama or comic relief, many serial police-themed movies became instant classics that never let their audience down... although some of them showed some signs of faltering down near the end. So, in the name of the law, you're not under arrest, but you have the right to remain silent while answering the following question:

Which of these cinematic police-themed series is your favorite?

A great poll suggestion, although it will likely be tough to vote: I am a big fan of many franchises on the list, including Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Police Academy, Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez movies (especially Le gendarme et les extra-terrestres), RoboCop, Maniac Cop... 

It might be useful to list sequels in the notes, in order for people to vote for whole franchises/series and not the starting point movie only... 

FYC: 
Scanner Cop (1994) (followed by Scanner Cop II)
The French Connection (1971) (followed by French Connection II)

I might remember a few more...

Lol, I didn't want to have more homework on the listing, but it makes sense to mention the other sequels... I forgot to specify that I was only considering series with more than two movies though.

Edwin Jones III, "Death Wish" has a lot of procedural elements.

The over-the-top, borderline-absurd, nitro-super-car, action movie series Fast and Furious is slightly police-themed. However, it is kind of spotty, and the by no means does every installment really have even the slightest police theme. I've only recently taken and interest in it, and I have not seen Tokyo Drift, Fast Five or FF6. I see that the progress of the series has steadily moved away from simple criminal intrigue to 007-level intrigue, as if to be the Grand Theft Auto of the cinema world.

Well, technically, any crime series is slightly police-themed... I think it all comes down to a simple observation, if the action is seen from the police perspective or if the main protagonist is a cop, then it can make the list :) maybe some entries in the actual list don't fit.

I didn't knew Infernal Affairs has sequels. :P
As a series I like Lethal Weapon.
Both Die Hard and Dirty Harry were great but not as a series. Specially that last Die Hard film ruined the series for me :(

I get the point... I'm afraid I'm looking for more "coppy" cop movies...

Nicholas Angel is a devout police officer. He is like Javert but not cruel and not French.

O, come to think of it, I digressed or phased out, and forgot that this poll is about movies series not individual movies. My mistake.

That's what I figured :) it's okay, nothing wrong with a digression :) especially if it reminds me of some movies I should finally watch.
