Cast[edit]

  • Officer Colleen Deegan - One of the toughest and most-street-wise officers in the CPD and also an Iraq War Veteran, Colleen is one of a few women in the CPD's Central Vice Control Section, working undercover to target dangerous criminals and vice crimes such as drug dealers or prostitution.[3]
  • Officer Mandy Curfiss - Cincinnati-native Mandy is an officer who's aggressive, outspoken, and relentless in her career of chasing down criminals. Mandy is a former victims' advocate in the Prosecutor's office.[3]

Controversy[edit]

Episode 4 of the show, airing on February 3, 2011, appeared to show Curfiss handcuffing and arresting an African American male who refused the officer entry into his home for an unwarranted search. Video footage of this incident taken from the episode was posted on numerous websites, calling for Curfiss's resignation. Two years after the airing of the episode, the present Chief of Police, James Craig, launched an investigation into the incident, which discovered that the scene was staged. All parties had agreed to stage the incident and there was no actual arrest made nor charges filed.[4]
