        Policing the Police: Investigating the Newark Police Department

        Journalist Jelani Cobb examines the history of conflict between the black community and the Newark Police Department (NPD), in this video excerpted from FRONTLINE: Policing the Police.

This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Police Reform Collection.
