The Seven Five

The Seven Five was released in 2014 and it documents the police corruption which was rampant in New York City back in the 80’s, focusing primarily on 75th precinct of the New York Police Department. The main protagonist is Michael Dowd, a former police officer who served for 10 years before getting arrested in 1992, his arrest ultimately led to one of the largest police corruption scandals in New York City history.

Using archived footage from the Mollen Commission investigation in 1992 and interviews with Dowd and fellow officers such as Ken Eurell and Adam Diaz this film beautifully stitches together a wild tale of corruption.

Dowd himself is now considered to be the dirtiest cop in NYC history, a man who headed a ruthless criminal network that stole money and drugs all in the name of financial gain.
