        Policing the Police: Newark's Mayor on Community Policing

        Find out what the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, considers to be one of the keys to unbiased policing, in this video from FRONTLINE: Policing the Police. In a conversation with journalist Jelani Cobb, Mayor Ras Baraka explains why he considers random stops by the police that are aimed at a specific group of people to be racist, despite the city’s police force being diverse. He suggests that using more effective intelligence gathering is one solution. In an accompanying article, the mayor provides additional insights into the legacy of racism and the challenges of police reform. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Police Reform Collection.
