ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque City Council is on record as opposing the planned filming of the reality show “COPS” around the city.

The council on Monday approved a resolution asking Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston to reconsider his recent decision to allow the Spike TV show to film deputies in April.

Council critics of the production say the series sensationalizes criminal activity and focuses only on the seedy and negative aspects of the community being portrayed.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1fXFcBZ ) reports that Houston says he believes the show will positively showcase the good work of his deputies.

But Houston is also leaving the door open for changing his mind.
