California Reporting Project Investigates Bakersfield P.D. Use Of Force

Anne Daugherty
Bakersfield Police Department responds to incident at Martin Luther King Jr. Park in southeast Bakersfield on May 21, 2021.

Over a four year period, police officers in Bakersfield broke 45 bones in 31 people, and in no case did the officers involved in those encounters violate departmental policy. That’s the finding of an investigation from the California Reporting Project, a public-radio led collaboration looking into police misconduct. Molly Peterson, the manager of the California Reporting Project who edited this story, talked with Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock about the investigation.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
