Dan announced on 6/11 that Live PD is permanently canceled. If you want to speak out about the cancellation of Live PD, sign our online petition to show your support.
Dan Abrams tweeted shortly after 4 PM EST on Friday that no new episodes will air on 6/5 and 6/6. The decision was made to cancel new episodes this weekend in light of continuing protests over the killing of George Floyd. The 300th episode of Live PD was scheduled to air on Saturday 6/6. While it has not been announced, we expect new episodes to resume next weekend on 6/12.
“Out of respect for the families of George Floyd and others who have lost their lives, in consultation with the departments we follow, and in consideration for the safety of all involved, we have made the decision not to broadcast ‘Live PD’ this weekend,” A&E said in a statement.
Really???? Cancellation this weekend??
I get the respect to Floyd’s family but cancelling the show for the weekend??
I understand the cancellation for this weekend. Things are still very volatile and I wouldn’t want anyone (officers, camera crew, field producers) put in any more danger than they already are. I feel you should put together a very special episode highlighting all of the good things officers have done and how the job can emotionally affect them. Some suggestions would be Lt. Danny Brown paying for all the items the homeless man shoplifted, Officer Ross breaking down after letting the veteran with drugs go, Addy Perez telling the homeless vet how she understood and got herself out of homelessness,… Read more »
One word…. Dumb
Ridiculous to cancel the episodes! So much politics in this crap. I won’t be watching any more.
Yeah U will lol
This is BS. You can’t let a few protesters cancel out the great job our police departments do each day. C’mon, grow a pair.
Early this evening I wrote a comment about understanding why the live show was pulled this weekend. However, I now need to update it. I can’t believe that even repeats are being pulled. Actually, I think it’s crazy. Repeats are a great way to show the nation what officers actually have to deal with day in and day out and how they are protecting their communities. No scripts, no false narratives by misinformed or just plain lying anti-police groups and politicians, just real live policing. By not airing repeats you act like you are buying into the premise that all… Read more »
Very disappointed. Love the show been there since day one. I am female in my seventies I was around for the Vietnam protests. I miss Salinas County officers they were the best I have ever seen. Glad you dropped the bums in Ohio.
I don’t use Twitter but I love the show.
Please come back. Even if you have to delay to August.
Sticks and all the officers stay safe.

I understand this was a network political decision and I get it. I just hate to see politics dictate what we watch. I support law enforcement and most are doing a great job serving the community…show that! I know there are some who shouldnt wear the badge because of their personal views and attitudes toward people of color. I can understand why you wanted to keep crews safe and all, but it could have been covered from afar safely. Besides, the major protests are not taking place in cities you cover. I will continue watching your show and support law… Read more »
We were very disappointed with the decision to take Live PD off the air this weekend. More than ever we need to show that there are great law enforcement professionals in the world. Look at Klaw, Abby, Sheriff Lamb, etc.
The more I think about the cancellation, the more disappointed I get. This show illustrates sooooo many good things law enforcement professionals do. Like when Tappler gave the lady money to buy eggs. We’ll miss Shep and Camak.
You are showing total disrespect to ALL POLICE OFFICERS IN THE COUNTRY. How will this help????? the answer IT WON”T.. It only give the criminals the message that they can control the narrative. THIS IS A MESSAGE TO ME THAT A AND E ARE ANTI AMERICAN. I GUESS IT’S SCREW THE NORMAL GOOD PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY…
Yes once again the law abiding citizens are getting screwed over.
Very sad that politics is now allowing censorship to dictate what we can watch or not. This is exactly what the liberal politicians wanted: anarchy in the streets. Innocent people are getting hurt and killed while criminals are running willy-nilly. Officers are doing the best they can. Yes, I get it – handful of bad seeds did some terrible things but 99.9% of LEOS are good folk. LP: don’t cave in. Come back and show America what it is really like out there.
This so disrespectful to law enforcement. A street thug gets arrested,resists arrest,fights with officers and now he is a hero. nonsense complete nonsense.
I will miss you this weekend but I understand. I think this show is so important! It shows all of the great things our police officers do. I love you all!
Wouldn’t it be important to air shows which show police officers doing their jobs appropriately? You all do know that there is one black man on this panel and you are messing with his livelihood.
Cowards. The only way to truly show whats really happening outside of fake network news and you cancel. Shameful. Im sure AE will plug a defund the police campaign next.
Shame on you A & E. The law officers and crew on this show and fans have made this your number 1 show. We have been very loyal to this show, I sure wish you could say the same……you don’t deserve us, the fans or the awesome people working on Live PD!
That’s crap. My favorite show
Why in the world would you ever cancel Live PD or Cops for anyone’s death- regardless of color. You don’t do that when a white cop gets shot . I think you people are all just looking for reasons to cause problems for everyone. When the white cop got shot I don’t even remember if you mentioned his name let alone cancel a show. What’s wrong with the American people these days? Looks like everyone is going off the deep end. I really enjoyed both of these shows and I’m getting tired of the reruns about all the bad things… Read more »
Lame, you ate the poison pill, grow a pair, A&E needs to grow a pair
I am also saddened that the events of lawlessness would cancel a show that highlights our heroes. If these networks bow down so easily, we can expect that any tyrant will cause them to abandon us in a heartbeat.
OK Violent Riots need to pre-empt PDlive. I see no respect in the disrespect shown to law enforcement. I only understand that the network is PC correct at the drop of a feather. Children are being taught to hate law enforcement. Very sad day in America.
Please return. No changes. Show “it” as “it” is.
WOULD RESPECTFULLY WOULD HATE TO LOSE SHOW, IT HAS BEEN OUR WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT SINCE SHOW AIRED LOVE YOU GUYS I RESPECT YOUR DECISION
Don’t cancel this show. I was remarking to my family how this shows the compassion and patience Police Officers show On a daily bases. After watching since the start It shows how tough there jobs really are. Keep it on the air !
I understand not airing last weekend,but please don’t cancel this show,if anything this is what the country needs right now for understanding and healing. This show documents real situations that should be seen by everyone. I have always thought this is important show and always will.
This is a really bad idea, the show is not biased, and shows what cops have to do every day.. I say keep the show, it’s one of the few we watch regularly..I stay up for new episodes..
Love the camper woman who kept getting busted, and the rest area guy (white nerd) who was close to getting shot..
keep the show!
I think now is the perfect time to have the show on. To show the compassion of the officers on the street. I understand the hiatus. But do not cancel the show, Not right! How can we show our children respect for others, our protectors. Not all Police are bad it’s just the 1%. I need to know I can call for help. They have my back. I will have theirs. I stand for all protectors. I support my Police and always will. I hope you will stand with me.
very sad they pulled the plug and cancelled this, wasn’t this show created to show the public what police officers go through daily?? however I understand why. But the protest were about police brutality. and this show was created to show there are good law enforcement officers out there bring back LIVE PD.
Cowards! Allowing criminals to dictate how you run your business. Screw A&E. Deleted the channel. Will not watch it ever again. Socialist cowards!
Sad this has been pulled. This seems like utter censorship!
NO NO NO!!! Don’t cancel this show! The public needs so badly to see the truth! 99.9% of the police are decent people working a thankless, dangerous job. PLEASE don’t let the untruthful few allow this program go off the air! We need to support law and order. We will all be in danger without the Blue.
WOW! Sorry for all the great people that work on the show. Wish the show had been up front about one of your officers that helped cause a civilians death. I was disappeared in the producers silence. The Ohio officer disappeared after the demeaning Hispanic comments he made. No one can be looked at under a microscope without seeing flaws. Salinas County should be what departments aspire to. Danny Brown and officer Lawerance always treat suspects like men not animals. In my seventies been in since day one.JUST BE HONEST WITH THE VIEWERS. SHOUT out to the young lady that’s… Read more »
I love Live PD nation. It has done a great job of informing the public. Don’t punish the nation for a few bad eggs. Most of the officers on this show have respect for the people as a whole. You give respect you get respect. A&E I will not watch your station ever again if this show is canceled.
Again, this is sooooo ridiculous. I am so very proud of the work that police do. There are bad ones in every lot of life. Why are you censoring the show with real live police? It truly demonstrates that not ALL police are bad! It is a LIVE example.
Again, this is sooooo ridiculous. I am so very proud of the work that police do. There are bad ones in every lot of life. Why are you censoring the show with real live police? It truly demonstrates that not ALL police are bad! It is a LIVE example. Needs saying again!
please reconsider not canceling the show ! your followers won’t know what to do with
our self’s on the weekend nights !!!
Live PD is my favorite show on tv! Footage definitely shows the fairness of the officers involved in the episodes. I especially love the canine officers! There’s nothing like an exciting canine track!
Thanks for the dedication of all the officers and the camera crews! I expect to see you back on the air REAL SOON!
I think cancelling live pd is a bad mistake, this shows lets people see that not all police are bad, I believe that the protestors are right in what they are doing, all people should be be treated the same regardless off the color skin, but this has nothing to do with live pd its a great show and I will not watch any other shows on A&E until live pd is back on the air. whoever cancelled the show should be fired.
Cutting Live PD and Cops in response to the death of George Floyd and the supposed police brutality is ACTUALLY disrespecting the A&E audience. A&E has allowed a ragtag bunch of ne’er do wells, malcontents, thugs, to tell them what to broadcast. Oh! And how about ALL the people who work on the production of these 2 shows? This is incredible disrespect to THEM! Not acceptable! The protesters are fine, but the rioters are just plain old law breakers! I want to know HOW A&E can allow this piddly minority of thugs dictate business practices to them!
I don’t think what happened should stop the show because it’s real Life and people need to see and know what is happening in the world they live in. Maybe one day this world will change,Lord I pray it does 🙏
I’m so upset that live PD has been canceled it was the highlight of my week. If you want transparent police than this is a good way to show it. I tried calling A&E to tell them how I feel about the cancelation and I couldn’t even leave a message let alone talk to anyone. I will continue to support Live PD and pray another station picks the show up or maybe another carrier like hulu or streaming service. I know I’m not the only that feels this way. Hopefully if enough of us stick together and support the show… Read more »
Pandering to BLM
Has anyone considered or looked into having that both Cops and LivePD on there own t.v. channel? There are lots of channels on cable or satellite television. Perhaps one of those channels could play only Cops and LivePD. I would pay to get a channel like that on my t.v.
