The Poets of the Portland Police Department
09/17/2013  

When you think about police officers, you probably picture them pulling someone over for speeding, directing traffic, assisting at an accident scene or making an arrest. You probably don't imagine them writing or reading poetry. But in Portland, Maine, that's exactly what a group of police officers did as part of a two-year poetry project. Samara Breger produced the story for the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
