Beyond the Blue [electronic resource]: Life as a Female Police Officer

Angela Macdougall is a wife, mother, and S.W.A.T. team sniper. This program explores what it is like to balance a career in a risky, high-visibility, male-dominated occupation with marriage and motherhood. Angie and her husband, Chris, talk about the demands of law enforcement-the need for objectivity, the fight against cynicism, the skepticism of fellow officers, the emphasis on physical fitness-and the sacrifices they have both made to accommodate her ten-and-a-half years on the police force. Despite the statistically high rate of divorce among police officers, Angie and Chris believe they have beaten the odds.

Racial Profiling and Law Enforcement [electronic resource]: America in Black and White

DWB: Driving While Black. For many African-Americans, simply having dark skin seems to be grounds for being pulled over on the highway and searched for drugs. Police call it "profiling," based on years of successful drug interdiction through traffic stops, but angry and humiliated victims call it "racial profiling"-a blatant form of discrimination-and want it stopped. In part one of this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel and correspondent Michel McQueen investigate the issue from the victims' points of view. In part two, Koppel and McQueen look at profiling through the eyes of the police, with special commentary by law professor and former OJ Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden.

Suicide and the Police Officer [electronic resource]

Suicide among police officers is a dramatic example of what can happen when those entrusted with the protection of others fail to protect and care for themselves. This program, produced by the New York City Police Foundation, focuses on the underlying problems-alcohol or drug abuse, severe relationship problems, difficulty in dealing with violence-that can, if unchecked and unresolved, lead to suicide. Police officers, trained to appear invulnerable and in control, are less likely to admit they need help, and are therefore at greater risk of suicide. This very moving program provides a forum for understanding and perhaps ameliorating the pressures that lead to suicide for those in positions of control.
