There’s been a controversy since A&E’s Live PD, started following the Pasco County Sheriff’s Officers. Deputy Nick Carmack says that since A&E began filming in Pasco County, there’s been an unexpected change in criminal behavior. Has the fact that Pasco County Sherriffs Office is being featured on the show possibly been a good thing for residents?
Many say the scenes of drugs and violence paint Pasco County in a bad light. However, Carmack says it’s definitely been a positive. He says crime around Pasco County on Friday and Saturday nights plummets when the show is on the air: “I think it’s shut down. Everything’s very quiet now on Friday and Saturday nights. You don’t want to be on national television getting arrested.” Good point! Not that being arrested at anytime is a good thing.
But Carmack says it’s been a good thing because viewers get to see police life unfiltered… you don’t just see the exciting stuff like COPS. There’s little to no editing and you see everything.
A Fox reporter also asked Nick if he gets any marriage proposals. His answer: “A lot.” Nick Carmack says he’s not married. But he is off the market. Sorry ladies. 😉
