Crime + Punishment

Crime + Punishment

Although the New York Police Department instituted mandatory “no quota” training for all its officers, the illegal practice of pressuring officers to issue predetermined numbers of arrests and summonses per month has not been abandoned. This practice betrays peoples’ trust in their alleged protectors. A powerful documentary about 12 brave NYPD’s active duty officers who blew the whistle on quotas, daring to fight back.
