Mental Crisis Calls; Speed Cameras | Mar. 16

On the March 16 episode of SoCal Update, KPCC Reporter Robert Garrova reports on a recent fatal deputy shooting and how it highlights the need to stop using police for mental health crises. KPCC Transportation Reporter Ryan Fonseca discusses a bill allowing cities to launch speed camera programs.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies were sent out on a “medical rescue/suicidal person call” in East L.A. Upon finding a man inside a car, holding a kitchen knife, they called a mental evaluation team. Before the team arrived, the department said the man charged the deputies with the knife and a deputy opened fire.

Assembly member David Chiu introduced a bill today giving local transportation agencies, not police, guidelines for speed camera programs. Speed is a top factor in fatal crashes, especially when a driver kills a pedestrian.
