Law, Crime, Reality
Emmy-winning documentary series like "Intervention" and "Born This Way" illustrate A&E Network's commitment to provocative, culturally relevant programming. Fitting perfectly alongside such projects is "Live PD," which shines a light on the hot-button issue of policing in America by presenting a transparent look at law enforcement on duty. Incorporating dash cams along with fixed rig and handheld cameras, the series captures the work of a mix of urban and rural police forces on a typical Friday night. As host, veteran journalist Dan Abrams gives insight into what viewers are seeing in real time.
