A short documentary recently released by FiveThirtyEight as part of their Signals series highlights some of the injustices faced by police who go against the grain to expose misconduct.

“Crime By The Numbers,” a short documentary directed by Don Argott for FiveThirtyEight and ESPN Films’ Signals series, tells the story of Adrian Schoolcraft. Schoolcraft, as a New York Police Department officer, blew the whistle on the NYPD’s abuse and misuse of CompStat, a system to track crime trends in New York City.

The documentary also touches on how advanced data analytics can be used to violate privacy rights.
