TENNESSEE HEROES BRING JUSTICE AND ORDER IN THE NEW SEASON OF POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS

(Los Angeles, CA) -- TLC turns-on the southern charm in the latest season of the hit franchise POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS. Premiering Thursday, May 27 at 9 PM ET/PT, this twelve-part series follows four female officers with the Memphis Police Department (MPD) as they put their lives on the line to keep the streets safe.

Memphis is known for its rich history, wonderful music and great food, but behind the BBQ and blues, like all cites, Memphis is no different when it comes to struggles with drugs, guns and gang violence - and the POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS are some of the first line of defense. Despite their small statures, these fiery female officers address and fight crimes on a daily basis -- maintaining order in difficult situations, determined to make a difference. From robberies to homicides, gang violence to domestic violence, the officers of MPD must be ready for anything.

Relying on street smarts and quick instincts, the POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS maintain a sense of humor and compassion while bringing fair and tough enforcement of the law. These local ladies are inspired by personal experience and make it their mission to secure the safety of the people in the neighborhoods they patrol. Juggling personal life with work is never easy, but these dynamic women always manage to put family first while furthering their careers on the force.

Meet the POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS:

* Officer Aubrey Olson- A single mom who put herself through college, this six-year police veteran is always guaranteed to bring a smile along with her when on patrol. But behind her lighthearted demeanor, there lies an officer who is determined to get the job done and isn't afraid to wield a gun that's as tall as she is.

* Officer Arica Logan- After trying her hand at jobs ranging from flight attendant to waitress, Arica set her sights on becoming a police officer in her hometown of Memphis. With only 2 years on the force, Arica is a determined high achiever who prides herself on her fairness and excellent aim - she is one of the top guns in her class.

* Officer Joy Jefferson- Though this wife and mother of two grew up in a part of town where most people feared the police, Joy wanted to be an officer ever since she was a child. With that tough upbringing never far from her heart, Joy relishes the chance to police her old neighborhood and show the young women in the projects that they too can get out and make something of themselves.

* Officer Virginia Awkward- Recently married, Virginia understands the impoverished neighborhood she patrols because she was raised there. Criminals should not be fooled by Virginia's slight stature, vivacious personality and welcoming grin. In the streets, she's aggressive, confident and can handle the worst out there.

POLICE WOMEN OF MEMPHIS is produced by RelativityREAL, LLC. RelativityREAL is a joint venture of Relativity Media, LLC and award-winning television producer Tom Forman. Forman, Julie Laughlin-Jones and Julie Link are the executive producers.
