COPS filmed in GA set to air

AUGUSTA (AP) -

Producers for the television show "Cops" say they've chosen five segments from recent filming in the Augusta area to begin airing in February.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree signed a contract with Langley Productions Inc. in April for filming by the television show.

The sheriff says he was a bit apprehensive initially, but later decided it was a good opportunity to show the public what officers do daily.

Two camera crews followed deputies for eight weeks in eight-hour shifts, five days a week. Producers have chosen five 6 1/2-minute segments that will appear in separate episodes.

Show producer Zach Ragsdale says there will be "a lot of action" from the Richmond County filming.
