The Missoula County Sheriff's Office has been chosen to take part in the "Live PD" TV series on the A&E channel.

Sheriff's deputies will be part of the Season 4 lineup, which begins on September 20.

The live show airs on Friday and Saturday nights.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Brenda Bassett says they were one of nine law enforcement agencies across the U.S. chosen to participate this season.

Live PD will have a film crew ride along with at least two deputies on patrol on Friday and Saturday nights for several weeks.

"It's truly an honor to have our Sheriff's Office selected as one of the nine agencies to be featured," Bassett said in a statement.

"This is an amazing opportunity for us to showcase some of the great work being done by our deputies to protect and serve our community," she added.

From the Live PD website :

Live PD viewers get unfettered and unfiltered live access inside a variety of the country’s busiest police forces, both urban and rural, and the communities they patrol on a typical night. Viewers are encouraged to post their comments about what they witness throughout the night on Facebook and Twitter.

In-studio host, ABC’s Dan Abrams, alongside analyst Tom Morris Jr., guide viewers through the night, giving insight to what audiences see in real time (via a mix of dash cams, fixed rig and handheld cameras), bouncing minute-by-minute between the featured police departments and offering an inside look at each live incident.
