A silver gelatin print depicting a black-and-white image of a Newark, New Jersey police officer standing in a doorway with a second person peeking over his shoulder. The officer wears a peaked cap featuring the seal of the City of Newark with his badge number, a dark shirt, tie, and jacket, and a badge with officer number 1418 and [POLICE] visible on it. The door has a chain to keep it from swinging like those appearing on train car doors, a window with blinds, and a sign that reads [A / PEACEFUL / NEWARK / DEPENDS ON.. / YOU!]. The print is signed on the back in graphite [Jill Freedman].
