Description

The series analyzed FBI data and found out that 'The Detroit Police department leads the nation's largest cities in its officers' rate of fatal shootings...Police executives have failed to create a comprehensive risk management program to identify problem officers, practices and policies that have cost the city nearly $ 124 million since 1987." The investigative team dissected a dozen questionable police shootings, "revealing how detectives ignored evidence and witnesses in their haste to clear officers." After the four-part series had been produced, the reporters obtained a copy and published the findings of a secret report that documented the Detroit Police Department's shortcomings.
