Live PD, which airs on A&E, “showcases the policing of America, following diverse police departments from across the country in real time as they patrol their communities.” Meanwhile, the long-running series Cops follows police officers and sheriff deputies during their line of work. The show airs on Paramount Network and is headed into its 33rd season.
Out of respect for the families of George Floyd and others who have lost their lives, in consultation with the departments we follow, and in consideration for the safety of all involved, we have made the decision not to broadcast ‘Live PD’ this weekend.”
Similarly, Paramount Network has pulled the June 8th season premiere of Cops in light of ongoing protests against police brutality. A new date has not been announced and the series does not appear on the network’s website.
What do you think? Do you watch Live PD and/or Cops? Should the series continue?
