PATERSON, N.J. – The Bad Boys of "Cops" want to come for one local Garden State city.
IF you watch the show then you it's "filmed on location with the men and women of law enforcement."
Producers want the next location to be in Paterson, New Jersey – they just need city approval first.
But there's a problem – Cops doesn't exactly make people and the places in the show look good.
Cops premiered in 1989 and it's been on television for 29 seasons but the show has been criticized for focusing too much on the poor and making minorities look like they commit all the crimes.
And that's what lawmakers are concerned about: their city's reputation.
