Billings officers to be featured on National Geographic TV show

BILLINGS - TV crews spent about a year filming Montana law enforcement officers for the National Geographic Channel television show "Frontier Force.'' 

A recent episode showed Yellowstone County Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Paris helping defuse a disturbance at an area gas station involving an Iraq War veteran.

The Billings Gazette reports that crews also spent time with the Billings, Missoula, Miles City and Darby police departments, with county sheriff's offices from Custer to Roosevelt counties and with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officers.

Producer Abby Lautt says her goal is to provide a deeper understanding of what law enforcement officers do in out-of-the-way places.

Yellowstone County Sheriff's Capt. Bill Michaelis says deputies were initially skeptical, but warmed after seeing the way Alaskan officers were portrayed on a similar show on the channel.
