Caught Stealing

Favors, freebies, and the lure of easy money were the slippery slope the rookies had to face on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 12.  While some barely seemed tempted by the huge pile of cash sitting in front of them, others got flustered over a tasting a free dessert.  Officer Jackson West's attitude when it came to following the rules didn't surprise me as much as it annoyed me, almost as much as it annoyed his training officer.  It's one thing to stick to the... more


It's Valentine's Day on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 13 and who knew it was the most dangerous day of the year?  So much so that Sgt.

'The Rookie' Boss on Dramatizing 'How We Think Cops Should Act'

“The Rookie” creator Alexi Hawley says that his upcoming police drama will take an aspirational approach to police work. “We try to approach it from how we think cops should act in these situations,” he said at the Paley Fall TV Preview panel Saturday.
