LAWRENCEVILLE, GA– You may soon be able to see the Gwinnett County Police Department on national TV.
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved the contract renewal of Kirkstall Road Enterprises to film and produce “The First 48” and its new spinoff series, “After the First 48.”
“We serve a large, metro community and what I think people should know about our agency is how professional and thorough our investigative unit is,” said Police Chief Brett West.
This isn’t the first time Gwinnett County has appeared on the show. Camera crews have followed detectives around since 2017. “The First 48” gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at homicide investigations within two days after the crime happened. “After the First 48” revisits cases and goes beyond the initial investigation, interviewing victim’s families, detectives, prosecutors and defense attorneys.
Episodes for both shows will air later this year and early next year.
