Reporter Roundup for July 28

Mental Health and Policing | July 28

On the July 28 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss community policing, mental health and Emmy nominations. 

KPCC’s Libby Denkmann has the latest on a major pivot in how LAPD officers police the city. 

A report out today from California’s auditor says Los Angeles County needs to do more to make sure people with serious mental illness get ongoing care. KPCC’s Robert Garrova has more. 

The Emmy nominations are out and John Horn of “The Frame” has the details of who made the list. 

The city of L.A. pledged to plant 90,000 trees by 2021 to help cool down the city. Jacob Margolis reports we are about one-third of the way there.

Groceries | September 25

On the September 25 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and KCET producers discuss updates on grocery inventories, the Census and election prep. 

While it's much easier to find essentials since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March, grocery stores are still out of some of the things we need, including baking ingredients. Natalie Chudnovsky explains why.
