The internal affairs departments of police forces nationwide are bastions of secrets and suspicion. Investigating allegations of impropriety and crime among their fellow officers, the men and women are viewed as outsiders by many police, yet few honest officers would deny that they perform a vital service.
They are the constant reminder that no one is above the law, even those sworn to uphold it. Their decisions can ruin careers and lives, or they can choose not to pursue officers suspected of misconduct.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® examines several recent cases of police corruption and misconduct to see how Internal Affairs departments work.
Meet Cynthia White, a Chicago policewoman who turned in 12 other officers, and Marvin Hirsch, who represented officer Mike Dowd, accused of drug dealing.
In a remarkable interview, Charles Campisi, Chief of Internal Affairs for the NYPD, traces some of the landmark corruption cases that have shaken the force.
It is a remarkable examination of the problems and temptations facing police officers today and the men and women who are charged with investigating their own.
