FARMINGTON — Navajo police officers patrol more than 17 million acres, watch over a population of 180,000 and have to balance modern law enforcement with ancient customs.
To the 330 men and women in uniform, that's daily life on America's largest Indian reservation.

But to a team of Los Angeles-based writers and producers, it sounded like a television show in the making.

"Navajo Cops" premieres at 8 p.m. local time Monday on the National Geographic Channel. It's a joint effort between the Navajo Division of Public Safety and Flight 33 Productions.

I saw it. It's like the show COPS except more Navajos. Except for some insight into rez life, not particularly remarkable.

Strategic Reaction Team to go hear what howling is because it could be a witch or their version of bigfoot made me laugh.

Interesting show as we live about 30 miles from parts of the Navajo Reservation. I see their police around a lot.
Tough job.

It is interesting indeed. I working on the Navajo reservation and deal with the Navajo population on a daily basis and it's great to be able to see it on TV.

That's pretty much what I thought. COPS with better scenery. NatGeo also did a COPS type show in Montana called Frontier Force. Same derilects and criminals as one could find anywhere else.
