A&E's 'First 48' Will Focus on Jackson P.D.

June 04, 2009  | 

The A&E reality show “The First 48” will tape an episode in Jackson, Miss., because of the department's high homicide arrest rate, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reports.

The show follows police detectives during the critical 48 hours following a homicide and takes viewers behind the scenes of real-life investigations.

The show's producers gain access to crime scenes, autopsies, forensic processing, and interrogations, according to the show’s Website. On Tuesday, the Jackson City Council agreed to allow the Jackson Police Department to be featured on the show.

Jackson Police Chief Tyrone Lewis said Jackson was chosen for an episode of the show because of the department’s high homicide arrest rate, which is 78 percent, compared to 50 percent nationally. Lewis said there are still some legal issues to be worked out with the show’s producers before the crews can begin shooting the episode in Jackson.
