Plot Synopsis

LIVE PD shows the actions and investigations of police forces across the United States, providing unfettered and unfiltered live access inside the country's busiest police forces and the communities they patrol. As with many live events, due to the potential of capturing intense and possibly disturbing content, the program airs on a delay. Over the course of eight weeks, dash cams, along with fixed rig and handheld cameras, capture the work of a varied mix of urban and rural police forces around the country on a typical Friday night. In-studio host, ABC's Dan Abrams, alongside Dallas Police Department Detectives Rich Emberlin and Kevin Jackson guide viewers through the night, giving insight to what audiences are seeing in real time, bouncing minute-by-minute between the featured police departments and offering an inside look at each live incident. Plus, a live social media component takes audiences behind the scenes of the LIVE PD studio to pull back the curtain of the groundbreaking series.

Season 2 of LIVE PD premiered on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 9pm-Midnight ET/PT on A&E. The three-hour season opener follows police across the country work in real time as they work the night shift.
The fourth season of LIVE PD debuted on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 9pm-Midnight ET/PT on A&E. The season premiere takes a real-time live look at police across the country as they work the night shift.
