CMCI Now: ProPublica’s Series on NYPD Impunity wins 2021 Al Nakkula Award

April 8, 2021

ProPublica’s 10-part series “The NYPD Files” is a searing investigation into how the country’s largest police department maintains impunity from public oversight and the toll that impunity takes on the city’s civilians––especially those who are marginalized and most at risk. The series is the winner of this year’s Al Nakkula Award for police reporting, co-sponsored by The Denver Press Club and CMCI.
