Covering Minneapolis in the Wake of George Floyd

June 3, 2022

Since the murder of George Floyd two years ago, FRONTLINE’s local journalism partner the Star Tribune has chronicled the aftermath of that pivotal event — from the protests that spread globally, to the trial and murder conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin, to ongoing struggles for police accountability and reform in Minneapolis. The new documentary Police on Trial, from FRONTLINE and the Star Tribune, draws on unique on-the-ground reporting and filming to examine the police department at the center of the story.

In this new episode of The FRONTLINE Dispatch, Star Tribune Editor Suki Dardarian in Minneapolis joins FRONTLINE Executive Producer Raney Aronson-Rath to discuss the newsroom’s Pulitzer-winning reporting and Police on Trial.

Police on Trial is now streaming on FRONTLINE’s website, the PBS Video app and FRONTLINE’s YouTube channel.
