Southland takes a raw look at Los Angeles as it is in the 2000s and as well at the lives of the officers of the Los Angeles Police Department who are trying to contain it.
Did You Know?
The LAPD badges worn by the characters have "LOS ANGELES" on the upper banner (above the image of LA City Hall) and the wearer's rank on the lower banner. This is the opposite of the design of actual LAPD badges, to avoid having a prop badge used to impersonate a real police officer. See more
Throughout the series, real Los Angeles thoroughfares or sections are named (e.g. Rodeo, Florence, Vermont), while scenery is nowhere near the real life locations. Even fictitious addresses aren't within the range seen on the real street (e.g. 1024 Rodeo Rd. can't exist on a street that only goes as far east as the 2000 West block). See more
