“Peace Officer”Peace-Officer_Shareable-Image

The City of Mesa Diversity Office and Mesa Public Library present an Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of “Peace Officer,” by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber. The increasingly tense relationship between law enforcement and the public is seen through the eyes of someone who's been on both sides: a former sheriff who established Utah's first SWAT team, only to see the same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Now a private investigator, Dub seeks the truth in this case and other officer-involved shootings.
