Review:

Despite Hollywood's glamorous depictions of police officers' duties, they do not typically consist of tire-squealing car chases, fire-powered shootouts with barricaded bank robbers, or stakeouts in undercover Ferraris and $1,000 suits. This episode of A&E's L.A. Detectives highlights Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department detectives as they contain a gang war, track a girl's sexual abuser, and interrogate domestic-violence perpetrators. The work is unrelenting and not in the least glamorous, but that makes the skill and dedication of these detectives all the more inspiring.

Follow a female detective as she executes a massive gang sweep that nets 23 weapons, including assault rifles, and results in 17 arrests. Feel the frustration of the detective who drives 100 miles to interview a young girl sexually victimized by her 33-year-old boyfriend only later to learn the girl went to Mexico with him and refuses to testify against him. Applaud a new detective as he deftly picks kernels of truth out of domestic-violence perpetrators' stories, which always begin with "I didn't do it" and end with "she deserved it." A&E's L.A. Detectives series presents real life on the other side of the thin blue line. --Patty Stuart
