A great deal of recent national attention has focused on police brutality trials in cities like Los Angeles, Detroit and Miami.

Longtime police beat reporter Jack Newfield offers a close-up look into the world of cops--their frustrations and their fears--through the different experiences of cops in the New York City Police Department. Key figures in NYC's recent police corruption hearings are interviewed as well as police commissioner Raymond Kelly and members of the rank and file.
