- Program Description
All is not well inside the Los Angeles Police Department. The worst corruption scandal in the force's history has devastated a police department once epitomized by Dragnet's Joe Friday and the clean-cut crew of Adam-12. In "LAPD Blues," New Yorker writer and FRONTLINE correspondent Peter J. Boyer unravels the mysteries that swirl around recent reports of police brutality, departmental racism and corrupt cops who take part in everything from dope deals to bank robberies. With unprecedented access to evidence -- including documents, audio tapes and startling footage of murders and mayhem -- FRONTLINE explores the dark side of lawlessness that has crippled this once-proud force.
