The comedy cop show films at a real police station, and McLendon-Covey, who plays promiscuous pothead Deputy Clementine Johnson, says the TV cops see it all.
While filming, theyve seen people come through the police station whove been arrested for prostitution, drugs, and DUIs.
One time, McLendon-Covey witnessed police bringing in a group of tiny, innocent-looking Asian maids who had just been busted for crack possession at a shady motel.
She says, I couldnt believe that was happening right in front of us!
Although McLendon-Covey downplays the seriousness of the law in Reno 911!, she has plenty of respect for cops.
She says, I dont know how they get through an eight-hour shift hearing the same bad excuses from everyone they pull over!
McLendon-Covey will be hanging out with her police peers May 22 in Los Angeles during an event for Cops4Causes, a non-profit organization that brings together members of law enforcement to raise funds and awareness for communities.
