A school district-wide student art exhibit by Westfield High School students titled, “Law Enforcement — Police Brutality,” is drawing criticism from the law enforcement community, according to a report at TAP into Westfield.

Westfield, a toney Union County town of 30,000 with a median family income of $112,145 as of the 2010 U.S. Census, was named the 24th safest city in the United States in 2015 by Neighborhood Scout.   The chances of being the victim of a crime in Westfield is 1 in 2057. Statewide in New Jersey, the chances of being the victim of a crime is 1 in 347, according to Neighborhood Scout.

Westfield is 13.5 miles from Newark and 10 miles from Elizabeth.

The art exhibit, which closed this afternoon, includes an image of a bloodied figure stabbed in the back with a badge and several images of guns aimed at unarmed figures.

TAP into Westfield reports that police officers worldwide are sharing photos from the display on social media and encouraging complaints to be emailed to Superintendent Dr. Margaret Dolan.

The student’s work was accompanied by artist statements.
