Freeze! This week’s we salute Hollywood’s projection of law enforcement with the best cop movies ever made

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988)

Sergeant Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) causes mayhem wherever he goes but still manages to get the girl. In Naked Gun’s case, he also catches the killer and saves the Queen.
