Since the late 1970s, SWAT team raids in the United States have increased by a staggering 15,000%. The American police force is becoming increasingly militarized, as former sheriff William “Dub” Lawrence has witnessed first hand – and experienced the tragic consequences. Lawrence established and trained his rural state’s first SWAT team, only to see that same unit kill his son in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Driven by obsession, Lawrence uses his own investigative skills to uncover the truth in this and other recent officer-involved shootings in his community. Winner of the Jury and Audience Awards for Best Documentary Feature at SXSW 2015, Peace Officer also tackles larger questions about the changing face of law enforcement across the USA.
