Chief Bradley Taylor shared an update with fans about the Hazen Police Department during the 11.10.23 episode. Chief Taylor said the hunting season was starting in Arkansas, and he and the other Hazen officers would be hunting with their families. They would also take time off during the holidays, but Hazen plans to return to On Patrol: Live.
Hazen is a smaller police department, so it makes sense that if officers are taking time off, they will not have enough manpower to participate in the show. It looks pretty likely that Hazen will be back in January.
