'Peacemakers' Part I: The Cop

This week we're going to tell you about three people who have a common goal. They're peacemakers: A cop, a  former gang member and an activist. All of them are working to stop gang-related violence in South L.A. But the ways they make peace in their neighborhoods are different. “Peacemakers” is a three-part series by reporter David Weinberg. and this is part one. It profiles a police officer who was an early adopter of community policing. The series is part of Weinberg’s radio and web project about South L.A., “Below the Ten.”
