Trailer | Women in Blue
With the national conversation around police reform still resonating, Women in Blue shines a spotlight on women within the Minneapolis Police Department to reform it from the inside by fighting for gender equity. Filmed from 2017 to 2020, Women in Blue focuses on MPD’s first female police chief and three women in her department as they each try to redefine what it means to protect and serve.
- [Officer] I sat at my desk and cried uncontrollably.
That was the first real time
that I felt like I needed to choose a side,

almost always include male officers.

- [Officer] At the end of the day, if people can't trust us.
- [Woman] Never been under arrest before!
- [Officer] At what point do you give up?
