Project: The Good Cop
The core of what we do is storytelling, and "The Good Cop" is a story we felt compelled to share. It's personal for us. Several of us have ties to law enforcement professionals that are either family or close friends. In the wake of sad, confusing, complicated incidences involving law enforcement, we set out to remind people that the vast majority of what law enforcement accomplishes is good.
We wanted "The Good Cop" to be honest and humanizing. Using one-on-one interviews and real ride-along footage helped us create that feel. The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety graciously opened their doors to us and trusted our vision with this sensitive subject matter.
