Police department in Indiana ends ‘Live PD’ participation

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A police department in southern Indiana has stopped participating in A&E Network’s real-time police show “Live PD” after a year.

Jeffersonville police Assistant Chief Michael McVoy tells the News and Tribune that it was “good one year run.” When the city joined in April 2017, it agreed to cameras film for a year, but he said there was no contract.

McVoy says “we thought it was beneficial to show our department in a light for the world to see.”

The show airs Friday and Saturday nights and has live camera crews following officers in several police departments around the country. The show’s producers have said there’s a delay of five to 20 minutes to prevent the airing of disturbing content or the release of information that could compromise investigations.
