Producers for the television show “Cops” say they’ve chosen five segments from recent filming in the Augusta area to begin airing in February.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/19t2Jrs) that Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree signed a contract with Langley Productions Inc. in April for filming by the television show.

The sheriff says he was a bit apprehensive initially, but later decided it was a good opportunity to show the public what officers do daily.

Two camera crews followed deputies for eight weeks in eight-hour shifts, five days a week. Producers have chosen five 6 1/2-minute segments that will appear in separate episodes.

Show producer Zach Ragsdale says there will be “a lot of action” from the Richmond County filming.
