Greene County Sheriff's Office taking break from A&E's "Live PD"

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott says his office will take a break from filing with the A&E documentary series "Live PD."

Greene County has been a part of the show since the spring of 2018. The live show features DUI checkpoint stops to high-speed chases to domestic disputes. The 'Live P.D.' viewers get an unfiltered look at how officers respond to emergencies.

Sheriff Arnott released this statement on Facebook Friday.

“It has been an honor for the Greene County Sheriff’s office to have been asked to participate in this documentary tv series for the past two years. While I appreciate the responsibility and the ability to bring the public into our patrol cars and show them the realities of law enforcement, I have requested a break from Live PD in order to focus on other projects and priorities. In so many ways, this program has strengthened our relationships with public and the citizens we serve, without interfering with our daily operations. While we will not be featured on upcoming live episodes, we continue to maintain an excellent relationship with Live PD and we will consider future participation on the program.”
