The Price of Safety explores national conversations of over-policing and racial bias as they unfold in the quaint community of Vergennes, Vermont—far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. While the Black Lives Matter movement is often seen playing out in more urban spaces, this film watches a mostly white community grapple with a startling fact: their police force has some of the worst racial bias in the state and possibly the country.
