FROM THIS EPISODE

This program started 23 years ago with Los Angeles still in the throes of the Rodney King riots. Among people of color, the LAPD was regarded as an occupying army. Since then, a string of police chiefs have instituted reforms. KCRW producer David Weinberg begins his report on community policing with an officer who grew up in South Los Angeles and who's helping to implement changes.
