After premiering in August 2022, On Patrol: Live rapidly reclaimed the spot Live PD left open in 2020. On Patrol: Live was live on Reelz every weekend until taking a break after the December 17th episode. After taking a two-week break, On Patrol: Live will be back live on Friday, January 6th at 9PM EST.
There are not supposed to be many changes to the lineup, especially for the January 6th episode. But the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office has a newly elected sheriff who has said he will not renew the contract with On Patrol: Live. We’re expecting that Bernalillo will not appear on the January 6th episode.
A new department was confirmed on January 5th. The Wilkes-Barre City Police Department posted on their Facebook page that they would be live on the January 6th episode. Wilkes-Barre should be a welcome department for Live PD fans of the northeast departments.
Many expect the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office in West Virginia to begin appearing in 2023, most likely replacing Bernalillo in late January.
Addy Perez Departs
One major change that will disappoint many fans is that Deputy Addy Perez with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department retired at the end of December. Addy was in the studio on the December 17th episode and shared some of the news. Perez shared that she is moving to Texas and pursuing a new career opportunity. She was featured in several seasons of Live PD and will be missed by many fans.
Requesting to Appear
Recently, we’ve seen news reports of police departments wanting to appear on On Patrol: Live. The Holden Police Department in Maine is the department that was featured in this Fox story.
“Geographically, they’ve not been to this part of the country. We’re very proactive. My officers are out there very diligently arresting people who are wanted and getting OUI’s and responding to crimes and charging people,” said police chief Chris Greeley.
Glad you all got a holiday break. You were missed.
Wishing everybody a healthy, happy, and safe New Year. Will miss Bernalillo County, but trust you to provide more great departments.
Sending lots of love to Addy Perez, and wishing her her happiness in her new venture.
lots of love to you, Dan, Sticks, and Curtis, and all the officers we have watched over the years.
Glad the hosts and their staff were all able to take a break over the holidays, well except for the phenomenal police departments they cover. I always knew that police officers put their lives on the line every day, but seeing it on “On Patrol Live” (and of course their former show), has me grateful for them and praying for them on a daily basis. Whoever all the people were that fought to get this show back on the air, Thank you!!
Just go to adds with out a long winded talk about going to commercial
