Flint, Michigan in the USA is one of the most violent cities in the country. It also has a very under-staffed police force – just 98 officers for a town of 100,000. It is also still recovering from the “Flint Water Crisis” and subsequent state cover-up where the city’s water source was heavily polluted resulting some fatalities. A new Netflix documentary series, “Flint Town”, follows the police force as they try to protect their city with dwindling funds but also try to gain the communities support after being let down by the state.
The 8-episode series arrives globally on March 2nd.
