Keep an eye out for the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office on your TV

Starting Feb. 16 the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office will be filmed on a weekly basis for the A&E show "Live PD."

The show takes viewers into the lives of police officers by showing them a live, direct feed of what officers are facing during a chase, arrest or other police activities. Crews from the show will be filming officers from the FBCSO in upcoming weeks, according to FBCSO Public Information Officer Caitilin Espinosa.

"We connected with ["Live PD"] via an agency the show is currently with," Espinosa wrote in an email. "Once we expressed interest, they researched us online, and it moved rather quickly."

Espinosa said the sheriff's office's social media presence played a part in acquiring a spot on the show. The FBCSO has the most Facebook followers of any county office in Texas, and the third most of police agencies in the Houston region, according to Espinosa.

"The show has a tremendous following on social media, and our ability to support that is a consideration," she wrote. "Our goal is to simply show our residents what our deputies do and the professional way they do it. Agencies have reported boosts in recruiting as a result of the national exposure as well."

Fort Bend County residents can catch their local law-enforcement agents on the A&E channel from 8-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

The FBCSO joins the Williamson County Sheriff's Office in Central Texas as a "Live PD" participant.
