Thanks for writing this. My 4yo just came home from my mother-in-law’s house with a Skye stuffed animal telling me she watched a bunch of episodes. Just looking at a screenshot, my husband and I could tell it looked horrible. We are so intentional about the media we show her, but for some people it just doesn’t register that glorifying police is problematic.

Our kid has a lot of education to counter the messages here, but, yeah, freaks me out thinking of all the kids set in front of screens with shows like this and no guidance.
