TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Police Department has announced it will make its debut on 'Live PD' this weekend.
In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Public Information Officer, Ryan Adamson, asked who will be watching THPD on 'Live PD' Friday and Saturday, and that the department is "coming your way."
Earlier this year, News 10 broke the news when THPD hinted at a contract with the show, which airs on A&E. In mid-October, the city finalized the agreement with Big Fish Entertainment, the company that produces the show.
