Movie Info & Cast


Is the job of cops to protect their community, or to hit their numbers? Crime + Punishment is an explosive documentary that chronicles the struggles of the NYPD12, a group of minority whistleblower officers who band together to expose the illegal, discriminatory policing quotas and internal retaliation practices of the New York Police Department. While all eyes are on their landmark class action lawsuit, this film examines the complexities of police work and the institutional biases at play through secret recordings, firsthand accounts and emotional testimony – not just from active officers but from the men and women of color they serve. Directed by Stephen Maing, the film won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Social Impact Filmmaking at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

The whistleblowers of the NYPD 12 definitely deserve a comprehensive chronicle of their struggle for justice, as their struggle affects so many. Crime + Punishment speaks well on their behalf, but not emphatically enough to close the case.

Crime + Punishment is essential viewing for anyone with a suspicion that there’s corruption in law enforcement.
