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