This Court TV show episode guide started out as Beach Patrol: San Diego. Then for season 2 they went to Miami, so now it's just Beach Patrol. Season 3 went back to San Diego, then for Season 4 they went to Honolulu, HI. A day at the beach can be a matter of life and death. The San Diego Life Guard Service is involved in saving more lives than the police and fire departments combined. Their scuba team not only rescues people but goes down deep to examine underwater crime scenes. This job is not about soaking up some rays. 50% cop, 50% lifeguard, 100% action.
