Once a decorated and respected police officer gets his world turned upside down when the SWAT-team he once founded shot and killed his son-in-law. Was this a casualty that could've been avoided or is there something fundamentally wrong when cops start acting like soldiers? In what may ascribe to the US' war on drugs, armed SWAT-raids have increased with 15 000 percent since the 1970's. Does this make citizens safer or more likely to be killed by the people who are supposed to protect them? PEACE OFFICER tries to make sense of a situation that defies simple solutions.
