Live PD
is coming to Northeast Ohio, where the work of the Streetsboro Police Department will be broadcast directly into your living room (or bedroom, bathroom, smartphone, etc.). The A&E show premiered last fall, shedding a transparent and dramatic light on police officers' jobs all across the U.S.

"They ride with us, they don't create any type of narrative. We just do our job and they are there to document it," Streetsboro Police Chief Darin Powers told WEWS.

The whole idea is that cameras record officers' work in nearly real-time, and ABC chief legal affairs anchor hosts a panel that provides commentary on what's happening. It's very much like some NFL Sunday play-by-play banter. The show runs on a delay in case anything horrible happens.

Showrunners claim that the series isn't meant to be pro- or anti-cop, but rather a closer examination of what, precisely, these public employees do. (Powers told the news station that he's hoping the show will improve the department's relationship with the community.)

The Streetsboro action, which is accompanied by five other cities' police departments, will begin at 9 p.m. on Oct. 7.
