Dakota Midday: James Jacoby On "Policing The Police"


Lori Walsh speaks with James Jacoby, writer/producer/director of the new FRONTLINE documentary “Policing the Police.” 

Jacoby examines Newark, New Jersey’s history of police abuses and the deep-rooted challenges of fixing a broken relationship with the community. More than a year in the making, it’s a provocative journey inside one of many police departments across the country that’s now being forced to reform by the Justice Department.

As America's conversation over race, policing and civil rights continues, this documentary is a raw and complex look at how police reform happens in a place like Newark, NJ.
