These are the stories of the police of Poplar Bluff, a smallish city at the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks. Stories that men who need heroes and comfort tell each other. They define a certain aspect of a police officer’s life in Poplar Bluff. Sometimes sad, often funny, but always told in the voice of real coppers—they are our legends and folk history. Follow Jake and Bob as they try to figure out just what it means to be a police officer. Maybe in the end you will find out for yourself.”
