Roswell Police Chief Philip Smith brought a unique request to the Public Safety Committee on Tuesday: A reality television show production company has asked to document the department’s activities.

“On Patrol: Live” wants crews to shadow members of the Roswell Police Department (RPD) and film their activities. The program is shown primarily on Reelz, a cable channel based in Albuquerque.
