A new documentary opening this week offers a look inside one of the most tumultuous periods for the Oakland, California police department, including a period of intense protests, a string of deadly officer-involved shootings, and an explosive sex-abuse scandal involving cops and the underage daughter of a police dispatcher.

“The Force” is directed by Peter Nicks, who previously provided a window into the emergency room at Highland Hospital in his 2012 doc “The Waiting Room.”

Nicks describes the two films as part of a trilogy examining the “grand narrative of Oakland,” with a third forthcoming film to examine the Oakland Unified School District.
