RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Saturday night, Richland County residents got the chance to meet some of their favorite deputies from the popular cable show Live PD.

Thousands of people attended a pizza party hosted by the Richland County Sheriff's Department at 2500 Decker Boulevard. The sheriff said the party was an effort for citizens to connect with RCSD deputies.

“In the 21st Century, law enforcement has to look for ways to connect with everyone, but especially our young people,” Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said. “And the popularity of Live PD has provided the Richland County Sheriff’s Department with the opportunity to increase our transparency, as well as connect with our citizens on an extremely large scale.”

One fan, in particular, said the party was extra special for her. 90-year-old Lee Harvey said attending the celebration was her Mother's Day gift for this year. She says she stays up late every weekend just to watch the deputies on Live PD

"I respect these officers. It's respect, I think, that really brings me here and the love to watch," Harvey said. "Dan Abrams, I have read his books and now I do like Dan. That I will stay up for. Sometimes I don't go to bed 'til 2 or 3 o'clock."

In addition to pizza, there was a free poster signing and giveaway. The first 125 people who showed up also received a Live PD T-shirt.
