ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – It’s a show you might recognize but with a new name, new network and new law enforcement agencies. “On Patrol: Live” will follow police departments all over the country, including right here in New Mexico.

An on-camera team will follow law enforcement officials on the job live to show what the day-to-day operations look like for agencies here in New Mexico, Florida, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey and South Carolina.

“A lot of the press is saying it’s a comeback of “Live PD,” and it is the same producers, it is the same talent, but it’s a new look. It’s a new show. We’re riding along live with police, law enforcement officers from eight different places around the country,” said Stan Hubbard Reelz CEO.   

“I do think in today’s world, being able to have transparency with police and law enforcement to see how they do their jobs and 2022 is really important.” 

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office is one of the multiple agencies the show plans to follow in its first season.

“We’re excited to be a part of it, they approached us and asked us if we were willing, be willing to be a part of the show, and we are,” said BCSO Special Operations Commander Capt. Nicholas Huffmyer.

Camera crews will ride along with patrol deputies on the streets of Albuquerque. 

“We’re also going to introduce some other aspects of what we do here at the sheriff’s office, you know, so probably some special operations stuff. It seems like the community really likes when we do some of the shoplifting, anti-shoplifting initiatives and some other things,” said Huffmyer. 

And anything can happen live. 

“We anticipate, you know, some surprises for the crew and for the viewers, things that they will probably find very interesting to watch,” Huffmyer. 

On Patrol: Live will air on Reelz which shares the same parent company as KOB 4. It kicks off this Friday at 7 p.m. The show will be live for three hours every Friday and Saturday night.

Now we know BCSO is going through a lot right now, following the heartbreaking loss of four county first responders this past weekend.

BCSO shared this statement on their Facebook page, saying in part:

“We have been filming with ‘On Patrol’ for the last few weeks, and we were looking forward to being featured on the Friday premiere. Unfortunately, we are going through the tragic and unbelievable loss of our Metro 2 family members. Live stream filming has been put on hold at this time as we grieve and recover as an Office and community.”

They say you may still see them featured on the show in segments that have already been recorded.
