Animal Cops: Miami - Netflix

The county of Miami-Dade, Fla., covers more than 2,000 square miles, ranging from South Beach to the Everglades. It is filled with millions of creatures — alligators, Chihuahuas, you name it — but there is only one team dedicated to animal emergencies: the men and women of Animal Cops: Miami.

For the team at the Miami-Dade Animal Services Department, their city is literally an urban jungle. Join the team as they deal with nearly 2,500 calls a month: a loose alligator causes a 9-mile backup on the freeway, a python is found in a public restroom, and a cult that sacrifices animals is discovered. These cases, along with many forms of animal abuse, are explored in Animal Cops: Miami.

Animal Cops: Miami follows a team of officers dedicated to the Animal Services Department as they police the 2.2 million people of the extremely diverse Miami-Dade County area. Based minutes from downtown Miami and on call 24 hours a day, Animal Services responds to a broad range of animal situations, from the most dangerous and serious cases to more light-hearted ones.

Animal Cops: Miami - Animal Cops in the Netherlands - Netflix

The Animal Cops series inspired the formation of a 500-strong animal police force (Dutch: Dierenpolitie), with full law-enforcement powers in the Netherlands, as agreed by the Dutch government coalition which formed in 2010. The first Dutch animal cops were officially certified on December 2, 2011 by the Security and Justice minister Ivo Opstelten. The Party for the Animals criticized the plan because the animal cops are only allowed to investigate the abuse of pets, not the abuse of farm animals. For the same reason, the Dutch animal cops are sometimes mockingly called the guinea pig police (Dutch: caviapolitie).
