Berkeley County South Carolina Sheriff's Office

Live PD

Sheriff Lewis decided joining ‘Live PD’ was a good idea and an opportunity to highlight the deputies working day and night for the people of Berkeley County.

“They’ll get an opportunity to actually see what’s going on in the community,” he said.

“They’ll be able to visualize and, in some situations, almost feel the danger that the deputies are faced with on a nightly and daily basis. We’re not here to glamorize or discredit the county because of crime.”

According to Sheriff Lewis, between two and four deputies at a time will be joined by a camera crew.

Deputies will be followed on all types of calls, the Sheriff said. Lewis hopes the show will also highlight the agency’s community-oriented policing model.

“I think this show will reinforce the high morale of this agency, the fact that they care about their job and they care about the people here, and I think you’re going to see that,” said Sheriff Lewis.

“It’s not always about chasing criminals down.”
