Four years after he covered policing in Newark, New Jersey in FRONTLINE’s documentary “Policing the Police,” Cobb returns to the city to see how federally-mandated reform efforts there have fared — and what lessons might apply nationwide. “Policing the Police 2020,” supported by The WNET Group’s initiative “Chasing the Dream,” is a powerful look at the intersection of race and policing in America in 2020.
