For sake of fun and discussion I've commented my own opinions on all the entries. I've taken the role of a director/producer and judged them for the purpose of being used for a real cop show. I've the impression some just wanted to make 'a' tune, rather than a tune for a cop show, tho I could be wrong here. What I do miss are the main themes, the themes you can hum, the themes that kids sing when playing cops outside (like we used to taaatatataaaa The A-Team tune when we were young). Aaanyway, for what it's worth, all imho, and 2ct:Law and Disorder
Good intro, clear demonstration of the concept. The detuned sawtooth lead @ 0:51 spoils it a bit for me. The whole thing sounds timeless, but this lead makes it cheesy 80's. The narrative voice over could perhaps used some processing.Pol4
Too experimental for my taste. I don't feel any connection with anything cop'ish.The Night Shift
This being my thing, I'll only describe what my intentions were.
Big neon-lighted city with skyscrapers 'n things, perhaps like Las Vegas, but less light. Everything at night. I used smooth/easy sounds like that sax and the muted trumpet to suggest the moody jazzy atmosphere of downtown nightlife.I'm Taking You off the Case
The good: the background arrangement is meaty, reminds me slightly of Vangelis' more progressive tunes from the late 80's, and I could actually see this behind a cop show. The bad: there's nothing I remember apart from the sound image. No themes to memorize, zippo. Guitar gets a bit annoying and its notes are somewhat pointless.The Rozzers
The more: retro-styled production. Could work as a comedy-cop theme. The less: I have the feeling I'm listening to a keyboard's arranger section where only the chords change. There's no clear theme I could detect.The Erotic Couch
The up: production. The down: no clear theme, iyam. Will Get 2 U
Too experimental to my taste.Challenger
The green: from 0:22 it could be useful for a dated/cheesy cop show. The red: not much of a main theme, bass end could be more meaty.Detective
Could be used for mystery shows like CSI, very decent production. Maybe not a standout theme, but for this particular musical genre it's about sound, less about theme.
