New TV show features Jefferson County sheriffs in action

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department is releasing its own television show this week. The show, “Jefferson County Cam Watch”, will follow deputies documenting their day-to-day actions -serving the public.

“We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new TV show aimed at giving you a first person view of the work of our deputies,” the department said in a social media post. “Join us as we showcase their unwavering commitment to community safety, crime prevention, and arresting those that harm others.

“Get to know the faces behind the badge and see the incredible work they do to protect and serve.”

JCSO Public Information Officer Henry Irby explained the goal of the show to CBS 42.

“Citizens will have an opportunity to see the everyday work that they do, how they protect, how they get out and patrol and the many things, the many wonderful things that they do in our communities,” said Irby. “In lieu of what’s occurring around the country as I said earlier about bridging that gap, it’s a wonderful opportunity to open discussions and just build those bridges.”

“Jefferson County Cam Watch” will premiere 6:30 p.m. Saturday on CBS 42. The show will run every Saturday through Aug. 24. It will also be available on the JCSO’s YouTube channel.

The department was previously featured on the nationally televised show “Live PD” in 2019.
