Hold Your Fire


Best Documentary Program

TV
It seems like every few weeks there’s a news story from somewhere in North America – a mentally ill person in crisis, shot dead by police. This documentary deconstructs why it’s happening – how officers trained to ‘serve and protect’ somehow end up shooting our most vulnerable people. Can police be trained to hold their fire?
