Precinct Seven Five (2015)
Friday 4th December 2015
During the crack cocaine explosion of the 80s and 90s a New York City police officer brazenly led a crew of crooked cops to build his own crime empire in one of the toughest neighbourhoods in Brooklyn. Michael Dowd - dubbed "The Dirtiest Cop Ever" - turned the department's 75th Precinct into the dirtiest precinct ever, both protecting and robbing drug dealers and lining his own pockets until they were bursting with cash and drugs.
His arrest in 1992 led to the largest police corruption scandal in New York City history and this extraordinary story has now been told in the hard-hitting documentary Precinct Seven Five.
Packed with interviews with both those who broke the law and those who protected it, real crime scene photography and footage Precinct Seven Five gives audiences the ultimate insider's access, for the first time putting them inside the car - and the minds - of the crooked cops.
Precinct Seven Five will be available to download 14th December 2015 and on DVD and Demand from 28th December 2015, courtesy of Entertainment One.
