A common question we get asked over on our subreddit is how live is Live PD? Well, we’re about to answer just that!
Our community has discovered that Live PD runs on at least a 30 minute delay or more. These findings are due to eagle-eyed viewers paying attention to time-stamps and radio traffic. The reasoning behind the delay comes down to the fact that the production team need time to edit out names or anything else that shouldn’t be broadcast on TV.
Sheriff’s and Command Staff can also log into a secure portal and watch live to cut anything that they believe should not be broadcast.
