Crime + Punishment goes back stage at the US’s' most powerful police department through the brave efforts of a black and latino active duty officers, labelled the NYPD12. Risking their careers and safety, they bring to light the pressure they are under to meet now-illegal “numbers” quotas. Officers are expected to target vulnerable minority communities, arresting young people on low-level charges, mainly later dismissed, making more than $900 million of the department’s annual budget on associated fines and fees.

Post-show speakers: Edwin Raymond is one of the NYPD 12 and features prominently in the film. His decision to join the NYPD was motivated by a desire to "help fix many of the issues and perceptions of the cops" and remains committed to exposing corruption and hypocrisy in what he sees to be an "inherently racist" force. Director Stephen Maing is an Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker and visual journalist based in Brooklyn, NY. We will hear about the ongoing NYPD12 and how the film can be used to support whistleblowers and those seeking to expose injustice from the inside.
