For the next six weeks, a camera crew from A&E’s “Live PD” will be riding with the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, broadcasting in real time as deputies perform field operations, the department announced.
“Live PD” is a reality show featuring live broadcasts of police officers from around the country performing routine duties. Each episode toggles between multiple departments throughout the night, showing officers responding to calls ranging from drug possession and assault to stray animals in backyards.
Starting Friday, May 4, Gwinnett County will be one of the featured departments on the show. The department agreed to participate in the show in order to give Gwinnett residents a closer look at how deputies serve the community, the department said in a release.
“I’m proud of our deputies and think this project will give citizens a greater appreciation for the good work they do,” Sheriff Butch Conway said in the release.
The show will air on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to midnight on A&E.
