LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The long-running reality series "COPS" set the precedent for uncut television. The Mob Museum invites the public to take an in-depth look at the success behind the show during its Courtroom Conversation event on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m.

In a partnership with the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law, the discussion will feature "COPS" Executive Producer John Langley and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriffs Joseph Lombardo and Bill Young. Both Sheriffs were heavily involved in the reality series during its filming in Las Vegas. 

"COPS" continues its long run with the 29th season approaching next month. The show has followed dozens of police officers on patrol in 140 different cities in the U.S. 

Although Las Vegas has been the location for some of the show's most memorable moments. 

The discussion panel will focus on the reality series' effect of personalizing the way Americans now view police work, its challenges and its rewards. A behind the scenes peak of the production of the show will also be discussed. 

The tickets are on sale now for $25, with a discount for Museum Members. For more information, call 702-229-2734 or visit themobmuseum.org.
