Go inside the nation's most corrupt police force and see for yourself why New Orleans is known as "the big sleazy" in law enforcement circles.
New Orleans has long had a reputation for having one of the most corrupt police departments in the United States. The FBI recently reported that the N.O.P.D. was "out of control" and the Department of Justice even made secret plans to step in and take over law enforcement in the city!
But the appointment of a dynamic new mayor persuaded the Justice Department to hold off at least for now. Investigative ReportsÔ traces the long history of dirty cops in the Big Easy currently two former officers are awaiting the death sentence for murder and profiles the men who are working to transform the department into one that works for the public good. In extensive interviews, Mayor Marc Morial details his plan to clean up the department and restore the police to a position of respect, while admitting that the long legacy of corruption will be hard to overcome.
From the crime-ridden streets to the ongoing oversight of the Justice Department, this is the incredible tale of a city held captive by the men whose job it is "to protect and serve."
