Cop Shop

Cop Shop is also an informal term for a police station
Cop Shop was an Australian police drama television series produced by Crawford Productions that revolved around the everyday operations of both the uniformed police officers and the plain-clothes detectives of the fictional Riverside Police Station.

Two one-hour episodes were broadcast each week. While many Crawfords Productions police dramas used videotaped interiors with location footage shot on 16mm film, Cop Shop was shot entirely on video. The two episodes of each week featured a specific police investigation and guest cast whose stories formed a self-contained narrative block. Alongside this the ongoing narratives of the regular characters continued in longer, more open-ended soap opera-style story threads. This same soap opera-drama series hybrid format would also later be used in series Skyways, A Country Practice and Carson's Law.
