"Proud of my deputies being featured on Live PD on the A&E station tonight for the first time. The production crew will be with us through March. If you haven't tuned in, check it out," Gaines posted.
(This was the first time I'd heard about it. I only take Wednesday's and Sunday's Bowling Green Daily News these days. And I tend to listen to a lot of Sirius Satellite radio and Spotify in my work truck. And it seems the rest of the time, I am either on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter or channel surfing. So I get most of my local news from either Facebook or Twitter.) Then cracker jack, crime beat reporter for the Bowling Green Daily News, Debi Highland, also tweeted, "You can see some familiar sheriff's deputies right now on A&E network's Live PD. Warren Co. SO is being featured through March."
"From a lot of folks, especially here lately, law enforcement has been painted in a negative light, and this will show that the Warren County Sheriff's Office is very transparent in everything we do, and it gives everybody a chance to see it, not only here but across the country."
I think it's a great idea to have a national show from a major cable network of this caliber such as A&E to come to our town to set up production and film. Just think about all of the national and international exposure that Bowling Green and Warren County will receive. Like Shelton said, the Warren County Sheriff's Department will not be shown in a negative light, but in a transparent way where the world will see where our boys have been doing a damn good job in law enforcement by fighting crime and keeping our county safe here in Southcentral Kentucky! They already have been making the headlines in our newspaper to prove it thanks to Debi Highland's excellent reporting for the Bowling Green Daily News. Mainly though, I can't wait to see my first episode of "Live PD" featuring the Warren County Sheriff's Department next Friday night on A&E!
