San Jose - The film crew of the reality show 'Cops' will be documenting and following the actions of the San Jose Police Department.
Starting on April 15; the film crew will follow officers of the San Jose Police Department and document their service for a ten week period. To demonstrate the dangers the officers encounter, the camera crews will shadow patrol units during the swing and midnight shifts.
This would also be the first time Cops has worked with the San Jose Police in 26 years.
According to Robert Salonga of the San Jose Mercury News; the San Jose Police hope by working with the show that it will boost the departments moral. Sgt. Heather Randol, spokesperson for the San Jose Police, stated, "It provides greater transparency and there's always the positive impact it could have for recruitment."
Salonga notes that the police force has been reduced from 1400 officers in 2008 to 900 officers in 2014 due to the toxic political fighting regarding austerity and pension reform.
Cops is a documentary style reality show that follows local police officers and sheriff deputies during their patrol.
