Policing the Police 1x54

An unflinching look inside the Newark Police Department in New Jersey – one of many troubled forces in America ordered to reform. Writer and historian Jelani Cobb examines allegations of police abuses and the challenge of fixing a broken relationship with the community.

 

“…an extremely rounded portrait of the Newark Police Department and its relations with the community…we get a clear sense of how tense and difficult the job of policing is but, also, how the officers feel justified in routinely treating people, particularly young men of color, as innately suspect and armed. I can’t recommend it more highly”. – David Remnick, The New Yorker
