WBRSO Narcotics Division becomes fan favorite on Live PD

As per The West Side Journal, the West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office is part of the Narcotics Division under the guidance of Narcotics Major John Baker. It’s one of the latest agencies featured on the A&E series. Live PD gives viewers a glimpse into some of the country’s busiest police departments and the communities they patrol at night. The show wants to give a transparent look at law enforcement.


Major Baker told the outlet that the series has not made an impact on their daily operations. Criminal activity may reduce overtime since most don’t want to get caught. Since the Narcotics Division mostly goes undercover, no undercover officers will appear on the show, nor will they ever appear, Major Baker said.

Newest agency feels “blessed” to be on A&E docuseries

Sgt. Glen Henagan shared his praises for Live PD. He says that it’s “a great show that we were proud to be a part of” that is “always guaranteed to have some great apprehensions and information on wanted suspects.” The sudden fame has taken time to get used to.

“Being on Live PD the past few weeks has been a wild ride,” Lt. Brett Cavaliere admitted. “Normally, as police we are the unseen heroes – the buffer between calm and chaos.”


Live PD made it clear that the mission of West Baton Rouge Sherriff’s Office is to enforce law in a fair an impartial manner. Agent James Lewis II became a fan favorite among Live PD Nation for his relaxed and causal attire. But he’s not letting the fame get to head. Instead, he says that he feels “blessed” for the wonderful opportunity.
