Despite having over 30 law enforcement agencies, Washington DC still has the highest crime rate in the US. With politics and indifference being a large factor in this, the city hires Newark PD Chief Jack Mannion, a movie-quoting, lounge-singing former NYPD transit cop who claims he can (and has successfully) cut a city's crime rate in half with his get-with-it-or-report-to-meter-maid-duty attitude, to take over as commissioner of the DC Police.

I stumbled onto "The District" a year ago and I can't stop watching it. Craig T. Nelson (from "Coach") does a great job as a hard-nosed chief of police who never gets mixed up about the difference between right and wrong. This show reminds me of a modernized version of "In the Heat of the Night". If you want a cop/legal show that you are not afraid for your kids to watch and learn from, than this is the show for you. While every once and awhile the show contains some adult themes, there is nothing I would condone as something I wouldn't let my kids see. Side Note: Ving Rhames is great as the attorney General in the last couple seasons.
