Pasco Co. Sheriff's Office ends partnership with 'Live PD'

The office says "it has been an honor to join you these last years."

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — So long, Deputy Carmack and K-9 Shep.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office announced late Saturday it no longer will be featured in any new episodes of "Live PD." It had been a fixture of the popular A&E show since late 2017.

In a Facebook post to its fans, the office said they'll continue to highlight its efforts on social media despite no longer being on the show.

"We believe it is time for new agencies to be able to highlight, like we have, the good work their men and women do and, as one of the longest tenured agencies on the show, we believe it is time to move on," the statement reads.

After nearly two years on LivePD, tonight is our final live night with the show. We have been honored to join you each Friday and Saturday night for the last two years to highlight the great work...
