“It was an honor to have an American documentary television series of this caliber ask to follow our deputies throughout Sarasota County,” said Sheriff Tom Knight. “I’m also glad that our citizens will get to see some of what deputies have to deal with on a daily basis in a format that is true, unscripted reality television.”
COPS is produced by Langley Productions and the program, which premiered in 1989, is one of the longest-running shows on television. Visit www.cops.com for programming information and “web extras” that will be posted to offer extended versions of some of the encounters that have been edited for television.
