Jersey City to Snooki

We're Not Afraid

to ARREST Your Ass!

2/9/2012 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snooki and Jwoww will be on some seriously thin ice when they begin shooting their new reality show in Jersey City
Snooki
and Jwoww will be on some seriously thin ice when they begin shooting their new reality show in Jersey City ... because the cops will be assigned to watch their asses AT ALL TIMES.

TMZ has learned ... officials in Jersey City  refused to a grant a permit to shoot the show UNLESS they agreed to some seriously strict rules.

1) The show must allow at least four Jersey City PD officers to be stationed at Jwoww and Snooki's home at all times.

2) The cops will stay with the cast and crew when they leave the home. Cops have agreed to keep an appropriate distance from the operation, so they don't get in the way of production.

3) If MORE cops are called in to handle an incident due to events related to the show, producers MUST reimburse Jersey City for all related costs.

Officials have also made it clear ... cops are taking the situation very seriously and will take action ... even on the cast ... if any state or city laws are broken.

Ultimately, producers agreed ... and got the permit. Production is scheduled to begin later this month.

I hope they are making the show pay for the four cops as well. The story says they have to pay for extra cops, but what out the four primary officers? If MTV is paying then this is a good idea. If the public is paying then it is stupid. The damage and trouble they would cause is less than what paying the salaries of four cops is going to be.

I gotta say, "Jersey Shore" brought a lot of money into Seaside,and revitilized the town.
Yeah,they're J.O.'s, but it helped a LOT of people & business's in this ****ty economy.

Wait a minute. IF more than the four assigned cops are needed for any specific incident, MTV will have to reimburse Jersey City. So, who the hell is paying for the four full time cops?
