HCSO To Be Featured On COPS Television Show, Season 33

Thursday, September 16, 2021
Sheriff Jim Hammond, Chief Deputy Austin Garrett and the men and women of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office announce that the agency has once again been chosen to be featured on the COPS television show. COPS film crews rode with Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputies for approximately nine weeks beginning in September 2020 to film Season 33 and captured numerous stories and incident footage for their television series. Altogether, five episodes were filmed and will air beginning in mid-November.
 
In a new deal announced on Sept.
13, COPS TV has now found an exclusive new home on Fox Nation, Fox’s subscription based streaming service.
 
Officials said, "COPS is one of the longest-running television programs in the United States and their reputation for building strong, creative and respectful working relationships with law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and the world. Their successful relationships have helped establish COPS as one of the most realistic and popular television series focusing on the daily activities of law enforcement personnel."
 
“I am very pleased that our agency has once again been chosen to partner with COPS to display the talent, expertise and professionalism shown by our deputies, not only to the members of our community, but to the world,” stated Sheriff Hammond. “Many men and women who serve in law enforcement today, including several in our agency, watched COPS as a young child or adult and chose a profession in law enforcement based on what they saw on COPS. We can use this unique opportunity as a way to recruit the best and brightest to our ranks.”
 
As Fox Nation is a subscription based streaming service, they are offering First Responders, active service members and veterans a one year free subscription. A link to join and take advantage of this special offer can be found by visiting: https://nation.foxnews.com/.

This will be the second time in four years COPS has chosen to film HCSO personnel in their hit TV series. In 2018, the executive producer of COPS flew in to meet with members of Command Staff, Public Relations Division staff, and Sheriff Hammond in order to discuss the final preparations for filming. Since that time, the agency has maintained a positive working relationship with COPS management and producers.

Pretending Is Dangerous

I’ve ‘seen some stuff’ in my time. I have followed politics for many years. I’m retired, I’m a realist and a Vietnam veteran, pretty much in that order. I’m not an alarmist or a conspiracy theorist. That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...

Roy Exum: ‘Picciola,’ At Age 185

I came in touch with a man named James Baldwin last week and he’s a man I really like. Oh, I never met him in person … no, he was born in 1841 and died 96 years ago so I have only become a recent admirer through his books. A self-educated man, he became the Superintendent of Schools in Indiana at the age of 24 for 18 years. Then, not so curiously, he worried that children were missing ... (click for more)
