Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament: Who Deserves an Invite?

If you’ve ever gotten weak in the knees watching a TV character in a Kevlar vest and gun holster, you won’t want to stray far from TVLine.com during the month of September. As summer winds down, we’ll be launching the Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, a 64-player battle to determine who is TV’s most desirable crime-fighter. But before we kick things off, we need your help: Our tournament will include cops, detectives, crime-scene investigators, military police, FBI and CIA agents of the male and female variety — and we’ll be including series both past and present (so fans of The X Files, Alias, and NYPD Blue will have just as much reason to get excited as Bones, NCIS, and Rizzoli & Isles aficionados).

So head on down to the comments and tell us which law-enforcement hotties deserve a spot in our lineup. We’ll peruse all your nominations, then narrow it down to the 32 men and 32 women who serve up justice with a heaping side order of sexy. And for up-to-the-minute alerts on each of our single-elimination showdowns, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

Now, ready, set, brainstorm!

        • I too wondered if he counted. As far as I’m concerned he and Michael Vaughn are pretty much in a league all their own tv crush-wise so I’d be happy if he could be snuck in there somehow.
