Abstract

This synthesis of archival, qualitative and textual research comprehensively examines the under-analysed phenomenon of Australian cop shows. It provides significant insights into televisual representations of police work, what these narratives communicate about policing, authority and national identity, and how these constructions are interpreted by past, and current members of the profession and those aspiring to it.
