Edmonson County Sheriff's Office To Be Featured On Hit Cable Show "Live PD" On A&E
Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office has officially signed the paperwork to be featured on A&E's "Live PD," which is a live-action look at law enforcement with different agencies around the United States.
Hosted by Dan Abrams, who is also featured on ABC, the show sends camera crews alongside law enforcement officers nationwide to get a live look at situations they face on a daily basis.
Sheriff Shane Doyle said the show has already featured the Warren County Sheriff's Office, and contacted him last week regarding his department.
"The show contacted me and said they would be in our area," said Doyle. "They said there was a possibility that if any of our officers were called in for backup to Warren County they might be on camera and they needed to take proper steps and acquire permission. Turns out, that's exactly what happened, as Warren County had a pursuit that came into Edmonson County and Deputy Jordan Jones and Tango were utilized to try to find some subjects that fled on foot. Deputies Jones and Tango were both featured on last week's show and they want to feature our department this week."
Doyle said the show is not the same as the popular long running "COPS," but one that takes a different approach.
"The show is about transparency with law enforcement all across the country. It's not necessarily about fights, chases, and arrests. In fact, it's much more about how officers use discretion, how they serve and help the public, and how they cut people breaks when they're in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Doyle said the production crew will be arriving early on Friday from New York to outfit their police cruisers with cameras and gear to prepare for the live taping that is scheduled for Friday night.
"We're going to be conducting road safety checkpoints around the county and Live PD will be there," said the Sheriff. "We're proud of what we're doing in Edmonson County and we honored to be able to show the rest of the world."
The show is set to air Friday, February 3, at 8pm central time.
Doyle said he wanted to remind the public that the following are approved safety checkpoints in Edmonson County:

"Safety Checkpoints": Code for "lets see how much revenue we can raise by harassing the public". Let's hope the publicity doesn't further inflate the egos of these freedom fighters.

And this comment is code for i got something to hide from the cops or else i wouldnt care. i never cared to go thru a roadblock because i dont break the law

A quick read of the constitution would serve you well sir.

Well said I wish the county could afford to set up road blocks every weekend so we could get these drunks and dope heads off the road!!!

Funny. I've never been harassed at a checkpoint and I've been a driver in this county for 27 years. So, exactly why do you feel that a safety checkpoint is harassment for a reasonable, prudent, law abiding citizen?

It's interesting Joey to see that your so willing to rip the Constitution up and wipe your behind with it. Many people have gone to war and lost their lives defending that document you seem to value so little. I believe in the Constitution and the 4th amendment is just as valuable as the 1st and 2nd.

This is awful that they need to paid to be on television especially if you are a so called police officer so I agree this is ridiculous
2/5/2017 04:40:54 pm
what exactly do you mean so called? and they dont need to be paid to be on tv. they get paid for doing there job, tv or not. im sure they wont forget your name the next time you come up on one of the roadblocks.

really, how much could possibly happen in this county to give a tv show enough footage to even waste their time.

Tune in Friday night on A&E to find out!

I for one appreciate the work that law enforcement does. If you wonder what goes on in our county you may need to get out a little. I believe we have been sheltered a lot by being born and raised in Edmonson County but we still have plenty of work for law enforcement. If you find yourself in a "roadblock" "checkpoint" or just simply pulled over, if you aren't in violation and you follow the officers commands, you should be fine. We don't need to forget what law enforcement does and I assure you we will not be aware of half of it! Carry on ECSO!

Some of these negative comments come from the same people that say things like "There will never be nothing in Edmonson County" and in the same breath will make fun or talk about how useless an opportunity like this is. Credit to our sheriff for taking advantage of this. We need to either: 1. support our county 2. keep our mouths shut or 3. get out.

Great article Shane Doyle is a stand up guy and all around concerned citizen. He treated my son very kindly when we had a family crisis. Wish them well and although we no longer reside in county we'll try and catch the show

I watch this show every Friday night. Can't wait to see our police on it. Keep up the good work.

Edmonson Co needed a Sheriff that looks to the future.

Sooo proud of our county sheriff department! I say and have always said, if you don't want to be "inconvenienced" by the law, then you probably are trying to hide something from them! Let them do their job so we can sleep peacefully every night! Don't want to go through a traffic stop? Keep your illegal substances and drugged out self at home!

I don't know what rock some of U have been sleeping under in past few years but where I live there's crime in every direction in Edmonson County & I use to think it was bad in Louisville but there's not a lot of difference anymore --- it's sad when U have to sleep with a pistol & install security cameras to feel protected from all the drug & burnt out brains walking around who would kill you over a $1 & I know for a fact Legally speaking that none of our law enforcement officials get paid enough or respected to have to put their life on the line & a big % of their time is volunteering ....... SO if U haven't noticed in the past several years all of our law enforcement have a triple work load ------- I feel safer going to Louisville then I do coming home anymore........ We should be thankful we have officials who work hard to protect us ----- we could be like some states that have no one to work in certain county's.....
