Police Chiefs
POV Season 3
Feature Film | 06/30/1990

How can we curb crime? Three big city police chiefs reveal sharply differing philosophies of law enforcement in this close-up profile by Alan and Susan Raymond, the makers of The Police Tapes. From Daryl Gates, who introduced SWAT to Los Angeles, to Anthony Bouza, who ruffled feathers in Minneapolis, to Lee Brown, who recently left Houston for New York, these top cop’s ideas about the causes and cures of crime are as varied as their personalities.
