        FRONTLINE | Are Police Reforms Changing Cop Culture inside the LAPD?

        Follow a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) police officer as he tries to build relationships with the community in an approach known as “community policing,” in this video from FRONTLINE. After a major scandal in an anti-gang unit, the LAPD was forced in 2001 to reform under federal oversight. Hear from a community member who feels that the increased police presence as a result of community policing is leading to more tension and anxiety. Consider the challenges of trying to change the culture inside the LAPD, its interactions with the community, and the way the community responds. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Police Reform Collection.
