Untold Australia: Behind the Blue Line
Behind the Blue Line
SBS  |  July 29, 2020

Told through the experiences of its frontline cops and the specialised Multicultural Unit, this documentary explores how they police Mirrabooka, a community home to 70 percent of Perth's new migrants, 62 different nationalities - a community that speaks over 100 different languages. The delicate and serious issues the officers encounter over a 10-hour shift are astounding. How do you navigate so many complexities, enforce the law, break down cultural barriers, start to build trust, and deal with obscure conundrums like finding a marijuana-laden skip bin in a car park?
