Some agencies end agreement with A&E’s ‘Live PD’
SPOKANE, Wash. — Some law enforcement agencies have ended their agreements to be on A&E’s real-time police show “Live PD.”
Some local government leaders have concluded the program was making their communities looks bad. Those communities include Bridgeport, Connecticut; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Streetsboro, Ohio.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office has participated in the past, but isn’t doing so now, as the department focuses on recruiting.
The sheriff’s office says it is looking to start back up in the spring or summer, and Spokesman Deputy Mark Gregory says they haven’t seen any negative effect or bad publicity from participating.
