It's Official: The "First 48" Isn't Coming Back to Memphis

Posted By on Tue, Aug 5, 2008 at 4:00 AM

The Flyer just received the following press release:

As Director of Police Services, I have reviewed and carefully considered the concerns expressed by District Attorney Bill Gibbons, community leaders, and more importantly my staff concerning the show First 48. First and foremost, our goal is to provide safety and solve crime for the citizens of Memphis. In an effort to prevent future disruptions or distractions from interfering with our goal, I have decided not to renew the contract with First 48.

Larry A. Godwin

Director of Police Services
