Women in Blue - in the Minneapolis Police Department

Online event

• What we'll do

Filmed from 2017 to 2020, the documentary focuses on the Minneapolis Police Department's first female police chief, Janée Harteau, and three of the women in her department as they each try to redefine what it means to protect and serve.

from the filmmaker, Deirdre Fishel:

After Eric Garner was put into a chokehold by an NYPD officer and died shortly after, I turned to the only police officer I knew at the time, Lt. Sallie Norris. Devastated by this senseless act of police brutality, I wanted to know if this could have happened on her watch. She told me it absolutely couldn’t have. The Rookie had started the interaction aggressively, quickly letting it escalate out of control. She said she would have started the interaction by simply saying, “Hello my name is Sallie Norris, what’s yours?” Those human words started me thinking, do women police differently than men?
