The 82-episode series was the number one broadcast of the night for all television during its run.
Live PD is hosted by award-winning anchor Dan Abrams with a special analysis from Tom Morris Jr. and Sgt. Sean Larkin. The show helped display a look into how policing is done in America today. The production crew used live cameras to help document the job being done by diverse departments from across all walks of life and all throughout the country. The new agencies being used will be the Tallahassee Police Department who is based in Florida, the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office who is in Montana. While there are some returning departments that will be aired are from South Carolina’s Richard Country Sheriff’s Department to Louisiana’s Lafayette Police Department.
