I think I must have caught some reruns on the Sci-Fi channel or something. In my mid-teens I think.

Human and alien police patrol space together.
Gerry Anderson's first live action series since Space 19999 evolved from an earlier discarded idea about a human cop working with an alien partner. Although a pilot of this show (Space Police) was made, it was never broadcast.
Anderson reworked the basic premise and came up with Space Precinct. Set in the middle of the 21st century, it took place on a distant planet where law and order was kept in check by high-tech, multi-species police force.
Ted Shackelford, best known as Gary Ewing from the US soap Knot's Landing, played Lieutenant Patrick Brogan, a former New York cop now operating in space. Shackelford was one of two American leading actors, betraying the shows' eagerness to appeal to the crucial US market.
Despite one of the biggest price tags ever for a British TV series, this didn't translate well to the screen, with the effects and make-up being scarcely out of this world.
