WILLIAMSON COUNTY — The Williamson County Commissioners Court has voted to end the county's contract with the TV show "Live PD," according to Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody.
On Tuesday, the court unanimously voted to end the agreement with Big Fish Entertainment, who produces the show.
According to Sheriff Chody, the department started working with "Live PD" in November for the show's third season. The department was also showcased in the show "Live PD Presents: Women on Patrol."
Sheriff Chody says the department is "disappointed" with the vote.
Disappointed that the Commissioners court did not support my decision to maintain a relationship to grant access to #Livepd. WILCO SO benefitted on recruitment, community engagement, transparency & so much more. Thank you all 4 your continued support. pic.twitter.com/5i0T3NvB92— Williamson County Sheriff Chody (@SheriffChody) August 21, 2019
