As our society debates where policing is going, Empire City will tell you where the police came from. From Peabody award-winning host Chenjerai Kumanyika, Empire City digs into the origin story of the world’s largest police force: the NYPD. Chenjerai takes listeners on a journey from narratives of Black abolitionists fighting slave patrols, to the story of two rival police forces duking it out at City Hall, to the origins of the true crime genre.
