Project Info:

Policemen lie to their children every night. We tell them not to be afraid of monsters because monsters don’t exist. But those of us involved in this life know that monsters do exist.

James Comey, Former FBI Director

There’s probably no group of people so ubiquitous and so integral to our lives that we know less about. James Comey, addressing a convention of police chiefs said that policemen lie to their children every night. “We tell them not to be afraid of monsters because monsters don’t exist. But those of us involved in this life know that monsters do exist”.

They protect, they serve and yet they feel separate from us. And vice versa. Perhaps in Coppers, we can start to bridge that gap.
