''Cop Land'' is a crime drama written and directed by James Mangold, starring Creator/SylvesterStallone, Creator/HarveyKeitel, Ray Liotta, and Creator/RobertDeNiro. The story follows Freddy Heflin (Stallone), a New Jersey sheriff who is charged with keeping order in a tight-knit community of [[NewYorkCityCops New York police officers]]. Such a neighborhood might be expected to handle its own business, and this is exactly how the residents see it. Thus, Heflin's authority is rarely taken seriously and he is often dismissed by the locals.
