Cincinnati Police on "Cops" Saturday and May 19
Cincinnati Police will be caught on tape on Fox's "Cops" twice during May sweeps.
In a "Cops Police Pullovers Special Edition" about unusual traffic stops Saturday (8:30 p.m., Ch. 19), Cincinnati officers encounter "a passenger in a suspicious vehicle reaching for a gun," according to Fox publicity. The segment was taped 12 to 18 months ago, says Josh Carnavale, Fox publicist for "Cops." Saturday's show also includes stories from Las Vegas and Fontana, Calif., he says.
An entire show will be devoted to Greater Cincinnati on May 19 in a "Cops: Ohio Drug Arrests Special Edition" (8:30 p.m., Ch. 19). It features stories from Cincinnati and Norwood police, and Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies, he says. (I'm told Fox called the show "Ohio Drug Arrests" because folks in LA didn't know that Norwood and Hamilton County are in Greater Cincinnati. Duh!)
A Norwood police spokesman says Fox producers filmed here last year. Fox also rode with Covington police last May. In 2004, "Cops" crews filmed Cincinnati, Covington, Norwood and Hamilton County officers.
