"Impressively intimate" ... "Riveting”
"One of the Best movies of the 2019 SXSW Film Festival" -- Variety

"a shockingly emotional and human look at a new kind of police force"
"a beautiful documentary" -- GLIDE Magazine


Ernie and Joe are two San Antonio Police officers whose comedic rapport seems straight out of a buddy movie. But their innovative approach to policing is nothing short of transformative. Guns tucked away, Ernie and Joe de-escalate confrontations, divert people to desperately needed mental health services, and save lives. These two officers are helping change the way police respond to mental health calls – one 911 call at a time. Ernie & Joe: Crisis Cops coming soon to HBO.

Q&A with Director Jenifer McShane and the real-life subjects of the film, Ernie Stevens and Joe Smarro.

A reception will follow.
