Former Utah sheriff William "Dub" Lawrence is as familiar with the militarization of law enforcement as one could possibly be--founder of Utah's first SWAT team, he presided over numerous drug busts and raids. But in a cruel twist of fate, he bared witness 30 years later to his son-in-law's controversial death at the hands of the very unit he created. Utterly of the moment, PEACE OFFICER follows Dub's efforts to uncover the truth behind his tragedy while researching officer-related shootings that happened nearby. This Oscar-worthy expose that shows the ever-widening gulf between the police and those they're sworn to protect is appointment viewing in a country where unarmed protesters and innocent civilians are often being seen as threats.
