'Cops' filming in Augusta finished

Cops television crews have finished taping in Richmond County, but the run dates for the episodes featuring local bad boys have not been announced.

Crews from Langley Productions Inc. in California tagged along with Richmond County deputies for several months during this fall, capturing criminal acts on video for the rest of America to see.

Sheriff Richard Round­tree signed an agreement with the production company in April.

According to that agreement, all taping was under control of the local officer in charge, officers and residents could refuse to be filmed, and the sheriff’s office has the right to review and approve all completed segments before broadcast.
