Alan and Susan Raymond's cinme-verite documentary The Police Tapes, a precursor for such reality shows like Cops, features footage from the South Bronx's 44th police precinct. Filmed over the course of 1976, the filmmakers capture officers dealing with truly harrowing situations like hostage crises, arson, and gangland warfare.
