Family of Cops is a 1995 made-for-TV thriller film from Trimark Pictures, directed by Ted Kotcheff and starring Charles Bronson, Daniel Baldwin, Angela Featherstone, and Sebastian Spence. It was filmed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.[1]

This film is the first in a trilogy, and was followed by Breach of Faith: A Family of Cops 2 (1997) and Family of Cops 3 (1999).


Milwaukee, WI Police Department Inspector Paul Fein (Charles Bronson) is a veteran police commander whose eldest son Ben (Daniel Baldwin) is a senior police detective, whose older daughter Kate (Barbara Williams) is a public defender who takes her job very seriously, and whose his younger son Eddie (Sebastian Spence) is also a cop assigned to the department's Patrol Bureau. Paul is assigned to investigate the murder of a prominent businessman, and he soon learns that the field of suspects has been narrowed down to two—the victim's sexually freewheeling wife Anna (Lesley-Anne Down) and Paul's wild-child daughter Jackie (Angela Featherstone). Neither Paul, Ben, nor Eddie believe that Jackie could have committed the murder, and soon Paul is using himself as a decoy in a bid to find out more about what Anna does and doesn't know about her husband's death. Complicating the subject, Eddie and Jackie are killed in a drive-by shooting outside of a Milwaukee diner. The only clue that Paul has is an eyewitness account, that the words "Mike Rigo" were etched into the side of the car.
